Watch live baseball in HD on your PS3 with MLB.TV app


12:40 PM on 04.22.2010



So, this is pretty damn awesome if you're a PS3-owning die-hard baseball fan. Today, Sony announced an MLB.TV app for the PS3. The application, which is native to the XMB once installed (unlike Netflix), will allow MLB.TV subscribers in the U.S. and Canada to extend their viewing experience from their computers to their couches. It's unprecedented for a game console, but hey -- the PS3 only does everything, right?

MLB.TV is a service that streams live, out-of-market baseball games (or any games that have already taken place) on demand over the Internet. If you're already an MLB.TV subscriber -- regular MLB.TV is $99.95/year or $19.95/month, and MLB.TV Premium is $119.95/year or $24.95/month -- you can download the free MLB.TV app from the PlayStation Store and link your account, and then you're good to go! Non-subscribers can still get the app and access some basic stuff for free, like team schedules.

Here's the rundown of the features that the PS3 app includes:

  • 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.

MLB.TV is already available for the iPad, and on Internet TV services such as Boxee and Roku. But this is the first time that Major League Baseball has made a deal with a videogame console maker; Sony's Peter Dille, senior vice president of the PSN, said of the PS3, "This is more than just a game console. This is a device that is redefining how content is being delivered to the living room." In this case, you can't really disagree with him, can you? Using my PS3 as a DVR for baseball games sounds great!

This trailer for Sportsball -- not to be confused with Action Button Entertainment's Videoball; the narrator's delivery reminded me of Tim Rogers, a bit -- is something else. I feel like I need to watch it about four more ti...more
