Assuming you’ve been able to successfully validate your iPhone after the 3.0 firmware update, you will be thrilled to know that Major League Baseball is now offering live video streaming of out of market games over WiFi and 3G. The new service was recently added to the MLB.com At Bat 2009 app, available now on the App Store for $9.99.
When the video service officially starts tomorrow, it will offer one to two live streaming games per day, but as Business Insider reports, MLB will eventually make available every out of market game. Now, you won’t be able to watch local games (i.e. Bostonians can’t watch the Red Sox), but you can always listen to the audio stream in those cases.
This restriction is kind of a bummer for fans who love their local teams (then again, you could just watch the game on television), but for anyone not living in the city where their favorite team plays, the addition of video streaming to this already amazing app is sure to cause many a joy coma.
Anyone out there planning on buying the app now that it supports live video streaming?
