There are a lot of Major League Baseball storylines to keep your eyes on right now, especially with the Trade Deadline approaching on Monday, so how's this for good timing? Major League Baseball Advanced Media has just reduced the yearly prices for MLB.TV Premium to $49.99 and MLB.TV Single Team to $39.99, while dropping both monthly packages to $24.99 -- your opportunity to watch live out-of-market games over the world's longest-running and most successful live streaming sports product.
"I use MLB.TV on my iPhone or iPad, just to see what's going on in the league," Mets All-Star outfielder Michael Conforto said. "I always like to see highlights and stuff. If there's a no-hitter going on, I can jump in and watch that if I want, a close game or whatever. Wherever you're at, it's pretty awesome."
"I know probably everybody in my family uses MLB.TV to keep up with me, to watch the games and try to watch me pitch," Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal said. "My dad has an account, so I use his account to check it every now and then. It's great. I really have been impressed with how the technology has advanced, and it's so accessible for anybody in any location."
MLB.TV is a major tool for baseball fans to get a look at new faces in new places, and there will be a lot of that as the trade dominoes start falling. It also is vital for scoreboard-watching, and for milestone watchers.
When will Mike Moustakas blow past Steve Balboni's longstanding Royals home run record? When will Boston's Chris Sale become the first AL pitcher since Pedro Martinez in 1999 to reach the 300 mark in season strikeouts? When will someone from San Diego -- the only modern team without one -- finally throw the franchise's first no-no?
With MLB.TV, you can easily move from game to game on a typical busy MLB docket.
It will be your chance to join a celebration this summer as MLBAM commemorates 15 years of the leader in digital sports tech. On Aug. 26, 2002, MLB broke ground with a live stream of a Rangers-Yankees game, and then became the first North American pro sports league to stream its live schedule in this way. MLB.TV got better every year.
All-access features also include home and away feeds, allowing you to watch either TV broadcast feed live, including Spanish-language audio overlay on supported devices. Portability remains a hallmark, because with a single subscription, you can watch live out-of-market games on all supported connected devices, smartphones and tablets.
Revolutionary 60fps live streaming video is available to MLB.TV Premium subscribers. This HD technology also will be available in 2017 on supported iPhones, iPads and Apple TVs as well as Chromecast, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Roku, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
"Alexa, open MLB" is a thing in 2017 for the first time, as MLB.TV Premium subscribers can listen to live games without blackout restrictions using the new MLB skill on the Amazon Echo platform. You can find MLB.TV on more than 400 devices, and subscribers have free access to all premium features in MLB.com At Bat (a $19.99 value), including home and away radio broadcasts, exclusive highlights and more.
While we settle in for the pennant-race heat to come, don't forget that FOX's telecast of the 113th World Series will be available to authenticated subscribers on MLB.TV.
"MLB.TV is big, because it allows my family to be able to see me play," Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon said. "For all the people in my family who aren't able to come to see me, they can watch me play and using that app helps a lot."
