MLB on TBS Returns to the Air on July 6

The first regular season Sunday Afternoon TBS game takes place this weekend with a 2:00pm (ET) matchup in which the Minnesota Twins (hey, surprise!) host the New York Yankees (oh, right, that’s why).

MLB on TBS broadcasts will continue weekly through the end of the regular season and into the playoffs, when TBS will air Wild Card round; take on two of the League Division Series; and one of the League Championship Series.

One extra twist starting this year: TBS will not force a blackout of, or be blacked out by, the local broadcast to protect an exclusivity by either.  TBS will air the game locally in the Twins’ broadcast territory across from the Fox Sports North broadcast of the same game.

All Star, World Series Games to be Streamed Online Starting This Year

As reported by Maury Brown in his Forbes column, MLB Advanced Media announced late last week that fans will be able to stream Fox’s broadcasts of the All Star Game and World Series games to their computers and mobile devices.  This capability comes online per MLB’s new broadcast agreement with Fox that runs through 2021.

Previously, only TBS’s postseason broadcasts were available for viewing on such devices.

And the best part for fans is, they won’t have to pay extra for these games, as they have in previous years, as long as they already have MLB.tv for the year.  Yay!
