What is MLB Live on Facebook Watch?

In 2019, Facebook and MLB will bring live games to a global audience of fans on Facebook Watch. Building on the previous two years' partnerships, MLB in 2019 will produce and stream social-first interactive broadcasts on Facebook Watch for six out-of-market games, one every month of the regular season.

Produced by the award-winning team at MLB Network, these specially developed game broadcasts will feature unique interactive elements that engager the Facebook community, including in-game interviews, original content integration, Instagram and other social activations, chats with the official Club groups and more.

This six-game package of broadcast will be available for out-of-market fans on Facebook Watch in the United States via the MLB Live show Page. Every game also will be available globally on the show page excluding select international markets.

All live games streamed on Facebook are subject to local, regional or national blackouts.
