Signups are underway for the MLB.TV Postseason Package now that anywhere from 26 to 43 games (36 last year) are about to be played on the way to a trophy presentation at the 112th World Series.
Major League Baseball Advanced Media launched its annual postseason products on Tuesday, in advance of each Wild Card Game, featuring Orioles at Blue Jays at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday (TBS/SNET) and Giants at Mets at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday (ESPN).
If you already are among the millions who have subscribed to MLB.TV as a regular-season way of life, then you already get the Postseason Package -- either the U.S. or International version listed below. Here are details of the three offerings now available:
:: AL Wild Card: Orioles vs. Blue Jays coverage ::
MLB.TV Postseason Package ($9.99)
Available games will include the American League Wild Card Game, AL Division Series and AL Championship Series (all games); National League Division Series (MLB Network games only) and NLCS (FOX games only); and the World Series (all games). Check the schedule for available games and for participating pay TV providers, as a one-time authentication is required for eligible subscribers.
Postseason.TV is included in the U.S. and Canada, and available on web and select mobile devices. You get live game DVR controls and full-game archives. This package also includes 2017 MLB Spring Training games for free, a $24.99 value.
:: NL Wild Card: Giants vs. Mets coverage ::
MLB.TV International Package ($24.99)
As usual, fans outside of the U.S. and Canada can watch live streams of every postseason game with no blackout restrictions, on more than 400 connected and mobile devices. You can see in-game highlights and stats, use live game DVR controls, get a Spanish audio sync, a pitch-by-pitch widget and the web-based HD media player.
If you already have this package as part of your current subscription, or if you sign up for it, note that Postseason.TV is sold separately.
Subscribers can see a live alternate angle companion product, without blackout restriction, to all of the TBS broadcasts. The network will be exclusive broadcaster of every AL playoff game -- Wild Card, ALDS and ALCS.
Features of Postseason.TV include enhanced companion coverage with complete audio broadcast (full video broadcast feed excluded). You can watch up to four alternate angles at once, see batting practice streamed live, get a pitch-by-pitch widget and a streaming Twitter feed.
The TBS lineup will begin Tuesday in Toronto, and its ALDS coverage will start Thursday with Game 1 between the Red Sox and Indians in Cleveland, as well as Game 1 of the Rangers' ALDS against the AL Wild Card Game winner. TBS also will exclusively televise the ALCS starting on Oct. 14.
New this year, you can choose from up to six camera angles for the AL Wild Card Game, up to eight camera angles for the ALDS, and up to 10 camera angles for the ALCS.
