MLB TV Launches on Prime Video Channels
If you are a baseball fan, you might be interested to know that MLB.TV is now available through Prime Video Channels. The service allows Prime members to subscribe to MLB.TV and stream regular season out-of-market baseball games live and on-demand, all from the Prime Video service. After you sign up, you can start watching a game from your favorite device, whenever a game is on. It’s a perfect way to stream live baseball games if you’ve cut the cord, or if you want to watch games on the go. Subscribing through Amazon also means that your billing info and subscriptions is handled right on Amazon, making it a little easier to keep track of what you are paying for, and you won’t have to give your info to another company.
MLB.TV lets you watch out-of-market MLB games while at home or on-the-go. If your device can support the Prime Video app, which already lives on TVs, game consoles, set-top boxes, smartphones, and Amazon Fire TVs, you’ll be in the clear for the next big game. MLB.TV will work seamlessly in Prime Video, with no additional apps to download or passwords to remember.
You can sign up for a seven-day free trial right here on Amazon. After that, 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.
“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 favorite 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.
“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 favorite teams and players.”
