Facebook Lands Weekly MLB Game Streams

Live MLB baseball games will be streamed on Facebook on a weekly basis. Those games will air on Friday beginning this week. The first game is the Rockies vs. the Reds at 7:10 a.m. ET and it'll be available here.

A report from earlier in 2017 claimed Facebook was working to add live baseball games to its lineup. Like Twitter, the network is trying to significantly increase its selection of professional-level live content.

Every Facebook user within the United States will be able to view the live MLB content.

Probably the most important single announcement [today], we've done an agreement with Facebook that will allow Facebook to do a national game on Friday nights without blackout. Really important for us in terms of experimenting with a new partner in this area. - Robert D. Manfred Jr., commissioner, MLB
