There’s another shakeup in the sports streaming landscape.
Apple TV+ and Major League Baseball have struck a deal for Friday Night Baseball—assuming that there is actually an MLB season this year, that is.
The streamer will have an exclusive weekly doubleheader with live pre- and postgame shows in eight countries, as soon as the regular season begins. Friday night baseball television rights were previously only regional.
“Just like all baseball fans, we can’t wait for the season to open,” said Peter Stern, Apple’s vice president of services, in a statement.
