MLB's In-Market Streaming Doesn't Let You Cut The Cord
MLB fans can look forward to streaming games in half of the teams' local markets, but they'll need to prove they have a cable package.By Carter Woodiel | November 20, 2015
Tech-savvy baseball fans know the drill by now. If you're looking to stream an MLB broadcast in the U.S., you're out of luck if you're in the media market of one of the teams playing. Now, for half of MLB fans, that's changed.
MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred announced Thursday the league has reached a three-year agreement with Fox Sports to stream in-market games for the 15 teams that broadcast on regional Fox Sports Networks. (Video via The Dallas Morning News)
That means now you can stream your local team in-market if you see a Fox Sports logo during their broadcasts or if you're a Yankee fan who watches the Fox-owned YES Network.
