Major League Baseball season starts today. Two games have already been postponed due to rain, but 11 more are still slated. Not at a TV? Here’s how to tune in…
Web video: Your best (and only legal) option is MLB.TV, the league’s online streaming service. This is for out-of-market streaming only. Basic subscriptions start at $80 per year or $15 per month. Premium subscriptions, at $110 per year or $20 per month, include HD video, DVR features, and more. Adobe (ADBE) Flash plugin required; separate plugin required for hi-def.
Web audio: MLB also offers Gameday Audio for $15 per year. This provides radio feeds over the Internet.
Mobile audio: If you have an iPhone, you might be better off buying At Bat, the league’s $10 app, which includes Gameday Audio as well as other live game tracking features. (And in-game video highlights.) We haven’t had a chance to try this out yet, but it should work very well over wi-fi and well over 3G, too. The service is now available for some newer RIM (RIMM) BlackBerry devices, too, at $15 for the season or $3 per month.
Satellite radio: You can also listen to MLB audio via XM Satellite Radio, part of Sirius XM (SIRI).
Web multimedia: Can’t even listen to the game? MLB’s Gameday product offers pitch-by-pitch illustrations of the game in progress. Yahoo! (YHOO) Sports and ESPN have similar game tracking services. ESPN’s iPhone/mobile site is especially good.
