Amazon has announced the launch of MLB.TV on Prime Video Channels, allowing Prime members to subscribe to MLB.TV and stream regular season out-of-market baseball games live and on-demand.
With MLB.TV, Prime members have a convenient option to watch live out-of-market MLB games while at home or on-the-go. Baseball fans can cheer on their favourite teams with MLB.TV on the Prime Video app across hundreds of devices, including compatible TVs, game consoles, set-top boxes and other connected devices, including Amazon Fire TV, mobile devices and online. MLB.TV will work seamlessly in Prime Video, with no additional apps to download or passwords to remember.
“Prime members love the convenience of streaming live sports on-the-go—and now with MLB.TV, they won’t have to miss watching their favourite teams play,” said Marie Donoghue, Vice President, Global Sports Video. “We know Prime members can’t get enough of sports, and we’re dedicated to providing more access to the Major League Baseball games they want.”
Prime members streaming MLB.TV on Fire TV devices (Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K, and Fire TV Edition) will have access to Prime Video’s exclusive X-Ray feature, which allows fans to access live in-game stats, team and player details and play-by-play information while they watch. To access the X-Ray feature, simply click up on the Fire TV remote control while the game is playing.
How Much Does it Cost?
Prime members in the U.S. can subscribe to MLB.TV for $24.99/month, or a one-time payment of $118.99 for a Season Pass, after a 7-day free trial.
MLB.TV joins an expanding, top tier selection of live and on-demand sports content available on Prime Video, including NFL Thursday Night Football games, AVP Pro Beach Volleyball tournaments, and the Laver Cup tennis tournament available to Prime members around the world, and English Premier League matches, the US Open, and the men’s ATP World Tour available in the UK. Prime members can watch additional sports content by subscribing to CBS All Access, NBA League Pass and PGA TOUR LIVE in the U.S., and the Eurosport Player in the U.K. and Germany. Amazon customers in the U.S. can also purchase UFC pay-per-view events.
“Prime Video will be another great distribution platform for out-of-market fans to have daily access to live baseball,” said Chris Tully, MLB Executive Vice President, Global Media. “Combining MLB.TV with Prime Video will provide a seamless experience for subscribers to follow their favourite teams and players.”
