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

253 3

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 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!

  • I hope you guys have express written consent. Implied oral consent just wont cut it :p

  • That’s cool. I would love to see other apps for the PS3 in the future.

  • Well done Sony. This is a great feature for hardcore baseball fans like myself!

  • NBA next please!

  • Been wanting this to happen so bad since I subscribed to this year. I’ve been drooling for a Boxee box, but this works for me even better.

  • Grace Chen,

    Any chance we’ll see VidZone or VidZone TV on PSN in the U.S. and Canada this year?

  • I wish there was something like this on the PS3 for the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup.

    But this is great for you hardcore MLB fans

  • Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter apps please since some people can’t seem to get a functional browser included with these updates…..!

  • If I were a baseball fan this would be increadibly awesome. Well done Sony & MLB!


    Agreed. A World Cup app would be fantastic as well!

  • NBA next please! they already have NBA league pass just that if you watch it via browser its not very good but I bet it would be better with an app for it

  • Ohhhhh neat! That is really cool!!


  • US Only as usual right? European are 3rd category customers

  • I was on the fence for all along but this would have sealed the deal for me…WOULD HAVE.

    I live in Charlotte, NC and am a huge Reds fan. The sad news is, I am considered in the Reds market, even though they only show 40 games (if I’m lucky) a year on local tv here. Only about 10 of those, if that, are HD.

    If Sony were able to work a way with around blackout restrictions someone would have my money really quick!

  • $119.95 Thats a tad to expensive for me. A great feature for the PS3 though. Keep up the excellent work!

  • WTH are you guys complaining about? Europe has VidZone and we don’t.

  • @15 lol wth are you talking about Canadians don’t get anything

  • WHAT?!?!? Canada actually gets a feature same time as the U.S

  • This is a strong start and I like this kind of interactive live media.
    Hopefully this app can evolve to also include TV shows movies etc.

  • I’m sorry, Did you say app?

  • I’m not a baseball fan, but that’s awesome. I’d absolutely love to see an NFL version of this.

  • When is the app going up? The article says you can now download it but when I look on the PlayStation Store there is “no content found” when selecting the MLB.TV icon.

  • Please tell me you can hook something similar up for hockey some day!

  • I’m beyond excited about this. I’ve been trying to watch games via PlayOn, but it’s terribly buggy, featureless, and the video isn’t very good.

  • I want to see the FIFA World Cup this way.

  • NICE…but im not a subscriber….

  • Cant wait for this, sounds great.

  • Great job. Not a baseball fan myself but it looks fantastic. I hope this means that other apps are in the works. Providing us with an app store and lots of simple apps that access the internet in some way while providing a simple UI that we can manage with our ps3 remotes or bluray remote seems like a no brainer. Cmon sony, be the first console to really bring this functionality to us properly.

    There is no reason why i need to buy another set top box like boxee to do this for us. Open it up and let all the other developers do the work for you. Eventually every set top box and TV in the world will have this kind of functionality. Other apps id like to see…youtube, ebay, ny times, pandora, skype, hulu/abcplayer, craigslist, weather to name a few. Still though ill be checking the baseball app soon. Great start

  • I wish there was something of that nature, for the upcoming FIFA world cup 2010. It would be AWESOME!!!! to watch all the games in such ways.

  • i hope this come to the uk

  • Oh wow that sounds awesome but subscribing to that is kinda pricey. Glad that the PS3 is evolving into such a huge entertainment system.

  • I subscribe to MLB.TV and I live in the UK, why can’t I access this app ? The UK PS3 store is a joke…

  • Never understood why I would want to pay for something like this when I can’t even watch my local team on it.

  • People outside of Japan still watch baseball? Huh. I guess there’s a market for everything.

  • nice to see the PS3 evolving even more. I would love to see an NFL one, as long as its not priced that high and have “blackouts”.

    i really hope this is just the start of the new apps that the ps3 will be having. i look forward to what else you guys are doing this year.

    I have a feeling E3 will be a big thing this year for what else the ps3 can and will do.

  • This is awesome. I know a lot of people who will be using this. I get the YES channel so im set but a lot of people outside of NY hardly get any games and cant get teh YES channel so this will help for Yankee games

  • Great job Sony!! This is fantastic, can’t wait to get home and watch me some RedSox baseball on my big screen, instead of this small ass iPad!

  • Marry me Grace!

    oh and can’t wait to try MBL!

  • @NewYorker214- The program will probably have blackout restrictions- so any NY resident if they can’t or don’t subscribe to YES your screwed!

  • Will this work in the UK. I’m a subscriber to and would love this app but don’t see much chance of it coming to the UK store.

  • The application is just another way to access your account, so yes all normal blackout restrictions will apply to live games.

  • very nice app , i personally dont watch beisball unless the yankees get to the world series lol , i hope you add a UEFA champions league, English Premier league or Fifa World cup ?

  • I can’t believe how timely this is…I just signed up for MLB.TV this past month. Lovely.


  • Looks pretty awesome! Please do something like this for FIFA World Cup or UEFA Champions League but enabled to more countries.

  • Why SONY had to go there?, They know how to get my money… is this App Remote Playable with PSP Go?… i just might Subscribe but im a wait till after E3 just incase a package for new SONY customers are offerd?… (prays)

  • I hope to see many more apps in the future. Like Pandora/LastFM, NBA, NFL, or anything else that I could imagine.

  • Wow, this is a really cool feature! The first thing I thought was that I hope you guys do the same with the NHL!

    I know has a similar service called GameCenter Live. I would be ecstatic if you could bring that to the PS3!

  • Glad it’s in Canada. Now, put it up. This “later today” thing really has to go.
