MLB.TV adds Sony PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to platforms it will support this season
The pitchers and catchers for the Arizona Diamondbacks report to spring training tomorrow (February 6). That is hard to believe. (The SF Giants pitchers being ancient, apparently, don’t report until the 14th.)
So as it is that time of year again, kind of, MLB.TV has announced that for 2014 it will be adding the Sony PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to the list of platforms it will support for its live streaming of ballgames. MLB at Bat has been available for the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, as well as supported Android smartphones and tablets, Amazon Kindle Fire and Windows Phone 8.
“Our guiding principle for more than a decade has been to build the best and most reliable live streaming experience for our fans and our developments for 2014 will be another emphatic step in that direction,” said Bart Manning, VP, Consumer Paid Content, MLBAM. “We are excited that baseball fans will have even more ways to access and enjoy baseball games across the rapidly expanding universe of connected platforms and devices.”
MLB will stream over 200 Grapefruit and Cactus League games this spring, with the first broadcasts set to begin Wednesday, February 26. One can probably expect an update to the apps as the last update to MLB at Bat for the iOS platform came just before last year’s World Series.
