Starting as early as this week, baseball-loving PlayStation 3 owners will be able to watch live streams of almost every Major League Baseball game through MLB.tv… for a price, of course.
For either $99.95 or $119.95 per year (depending on the package), users can subscribe to MLB.tv and get access to out of market games and an archive of all the games. The service is already available via your computer, iPad, some mobile phones and set top boxes. MLB is hoping to increase its subscriber base substantially by tapping into the 12 million PS3 owners in the U.S.
“It continues our path of making sure that our content is available to the fans,” said some guy with a long job title from MLB.
