A new partnership between YouTube and the MLB has been announced today which will see the former exclusively live streaming 13 MLB games on both YouTube and YouTube TV. This will be during the second half of the regular baseball season. This is not the first time that YouTube has teamed up with MLB, it’s already a presenting partner for the ongoing World Series. However, this does happen to be YouTube’s first exclusive live game partnership with the MLB.
The dates and schedules of these games haven’t been confirmed at this point in time. The company says that it will provide that information in a few weeks. It did mention that the 13 games will be exclusively available to viewers in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada for free through the MLB YouTube Channel. A dedicated channel will be launched on YouTube TV for this.
The live coverage will include a pre-game and post-game show in addition to MLB and YouTube content from popular creators. YouTube hasn’t confirmed which content producers it may be working on to promote this partnership. All of the games will be produced and enhanced for the online video streaming website by the MLB’s Network’s production team.
“With Major League Baseball’s expanding international fanbase, we are confident YouTube’s global audience will bring fans around the world together in one place to watch the games and teams they love,” YouTube’s Head of Sports and News Partnerships Timothy Katz said in a statement.
