MLB.TV

Stream Yankees Baseball on MLB.TV
Source: MLB

MLB.TV brings baseball into the 21st century with features like 60 frames-per-second broadcasts, next-day replays, multi-game views, bonus content and more. You can’t use it to watch live games if you live in the Reds’ market area, though. Source: MLB.TV

Even though all MLB.TV subscribers pay the same subscription prices, Reds fans that live outside of the Reds’ market area get a much better deal because they can watch most live games. Because of MLB.TV’s strict blackout policy, everyone else has to tune in the next day and watch replays or listen to audio broadcasts of the games.

Plans and coverage

A single-team pass costs $92 and lets you watch video recordings of all the Reds games for the entire season. People who live outside of the Reds’ market can tune in live. For $27 more, you can watch other teams play as well.

Blackout rules

As mentioned above, people who live in the Reds’ market area can’t watch live Reds games due to blackout restrictions. Even people who are located outside of the market won’t be able to watch games that are broadcast by ESPN and games that affect the playoffs.

Features

MLB.TV’s 60 frames-per-second video feeds ensure that you won’t miss anything during fast plays. There’s also Catch-up, which delivers a summary of any game’s major plays and a tiled view that MLB.TV calls Multi-View. You can use Multi-View to tune into several games at once.

MLB.TV has apps for most smartphones and TV devices:

  • Living room devices: MLB.TV app for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV Sticks and Roku.
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: MLB.TV app for certain Samsung televisions and devices based on certain versions of Amazon Fire TV, Android TV or Roku.
  • Mobile devices and tablets: At Bat app for Amazon Fire tablets, Android and iOS.
  • Game consoles: MLB.TV app for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
  • Desktop browsers: Most browsers.
