MLB Settles Anti-Trust Suit, Will Offer Single-Team Streaming Packages
MLB will offer single-team streaming packages for the first time for $84.99/season, drop the league-wide package to $109/season, and plans to allow authenticated RSN subs to watch visiting teams' TV feeds when visitor is playing in their market.
Major League Baseball has agreed to a settlement in an anti-trust case brought against it by a group of fans just hours before the trial was set to begin. As a result of the settlement, MLB will offer unbundled Internet packages for the next five years, including single-team packages for $84.99 next season (a 23% drop from the cheapest version previously available), as well drop the cost of a league-wide package to drop to $109.99.
In addition, the league will allow authenticated RSN subscribers to watch the visiting team’s television feed when they play in-market teams. That option – a first across the four major pro sports leagues – will be available by July for an extra $10. The NHL and NBA both already offer single-team streaming packages.
