Apple held its “Peek Performance” event today and during the event, it announced that it will be live streaming “Friday Night Baseball,” a weekly doubleheader with live pregame and postgame shows that will be available to fans in eight countries exclusively on Apple TV+ as soon as the regular season begins. (And the lockout ends.)
Fans will be able to watch marquee games on Friday nights, free from local broadcast restrictions, across Apple TV+ compatible devices, including the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV 4K and HD, and on tv.apple.com, along with select smart TVs, gaming consoles, and cable set-top boxes. “Friday Night Baseball” will be available on Apple TV+ — and, for a limited time, without the need for a subscription.
“Friday Night Baseball” will be available on Apple TV+ in the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Korea, and the United Kingdom, and will expand to additional countries at a later date.
Apple and MLB will also provide enhanced league and team coverage for fans to easily follow the league or their favorite teams in Apple News, with the ability to watch highlights right in the News app.
