Watch Major League Baseball on PS3! MLB.TV App Live Today

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Apr 22, 2010 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hi Everyone – I’m excited to show everyone the new MLB.TV application for the PS3 that will be available from PlayStation Network, in both U.S. and Canada, later today. This app allows MLB.TV subscribers to watch every regular season game live in HD (local blackout restrictions do apply), with tons of new interactive features designed exclusively for PSN.

Some of the unique interactive features that we show in the demo include:

  • MLB Scoreboard – See a schedule of today’s games (and set options to control whether or not you see the scores)
  • Home and Away Feeds – Choose to watch either the home or away broadcast feed
  • HD quality video and DVR functionality – watch a live game in HD (with Live Game DVR functionality that lets you pause and rewind live games of fast-forward back to live game action)
  • Season Archive – Want to re-live a great moment? Go back and watch games you’ve missed from earlier in the season.
  • Scrollable Linescore – Go directly to any half-inning to watch only that portion of the game.
  • Favorite Teams/Calendar Schedule – Scroll through the entire 2010 Major League Baseball schedule in calendar format or designate your favorite team(s) to see the schedule for that team.

You can now download the app from the “Media” category on PlayStation Store, and launch it from the Video section of the XMB.

You must be an MLB.TV subscriber to fully utilize this app (some features, such as the calendar schedule, are available to everyone for free). There are two annual packages: MLB.TV is $99.95 and MLB.TV Premium is $119.95. If you aren’t already a MLB.TV subscriber, you can go to ps3.com/mlbtv to sign up. Once you’ve subscribed, link your MLB.TV subscription to a PS3 (via the app), and enjoy the season!

This is truly the ultimate baseball viewing experience from MLB.TV and PlayStation Network. Enjoy!

Well glad I read this thread before I bought a PS3. Am moving to the UAE and when I read about this was really happy because I love my baseball, and watching on a computer just does not do it for me. But from reading this seems I will not be able to use the app outside the US, guess I am not running out to buy the PS3

Love the app. Great concept. Now, let’s get a sport I’d like to watch like NBA or NHL. Not interested in baseball at all.

For a real baseball fan, this is about the coolest thing ever. I was hoping MLB and PS3 would get connected and so happy they did! Great picture. Easy, pleasing interface. Quickly navigate between games. Simply awesome. I just wish I had known 3 weeks ago. I only learned of this application yesterday–and I use MLB.TV every day! Why wasn’t there more fanfare??
