this sure went under the radar, but cool none the less.

Im watching my Astros play, and Im loving this new feature. It works better on my PS3 than it does on my PC.

This is a huge feature for Baseball fans.

just tried the app, absolutely amazing how they handled the app. You can pause, search to a specific inning and watch any game that has already passed and/or is currently live.

This is an excellent demonstration of how easily sony can further expand its playstation expierience. Imagine apps like these for NFL, NBA, NHL, FIFA, Champions league...etc!!!

Truly mind blowing.

Imagine apps for youtube, hulu, bbc, etc, etc etc!

Apple watch out...

and best of all, it supports remote play...which means you can watch any game you want while you're out and about on your PSP! That is awesome!

It would be nice to get all the other sports too,(NFL/NBA/NHL) but as a hardcore Baseball fan I am really happy that MLB.TV has come first.

Now that I no longer live in Houston, it would be nice to be able to watch all my favorite Houston teams on my PS3.

Would be good if they bring Basketball.

ryano232773074d ago

Yeah would get that for sure.

I never even knew about this until the article came here.
As an Aussie I logged into my US account and was able to download and access it.
I haven't completed the account stuff, but the option is there (not sure if the cost is $119.00 USD or thats AUD - I assume USD)

I payed $300+ to be able to watch any NFL game from my PC at work. Won't pay that price again, but $100 for a full NFL season I'll be in.

Is this a extra charge?
Do I have to subcribe somewhere?

Oh hold on I'll just check the website... Can I really just watch some baseball???
Is it live? Wait let me check!

You just have to be a subscriber to MLB.tv on MLB.com. I just bought the monthly subscription for $19.99 and so far, it's pretty neat on PS3.

and yes, you can watch the games live except for your in-market team. For example, I'm an Yankee fan but I can't watch their games live because I live in New York. However, when the game becomes available in archive(which is like an hour after the game ends), you can watch it.

actaully Yankees website has a deal with I/o TW and CC i think to allow in market games for Yankees

BaSeBaLlKiD7213074d ago (Edited 3074d ago )

I'm pretty sure that the Yankees in-market stream is a separate service than MLB.TV. I bought a month of that last season because I was moving into my dorm which didn't have cable at the time and it didn't give me access to watch other teams.

Also the in-stream market requires you to be a paying customer for these cable companies you mentioned so I am 99.9% sure that I still won't be able to watch Yankee games live on MLB.TV.

Really want to see this ap in action. If it does deliver seamless streaming, can't imagine that this will be the only extent Sony uses it.
