What’s pretty awesome about the NBC Sports app is the ability to stream live games if you’re a Comcast customer. There are limits, but the Sixers were the first local sports team to allow streaming through the app. The Flyers followed suit prior to this season. And now, NBC Sports Regional Networks and Major League Baseball Advanced Media will make it possible for you to watch the Phillies online.
Announced today, NBCSRN and MLBAM reached an agreement to allow the regional sports networks (Philly, Chicago and the Bay Area) to stream their local games during the upcoming season. So, if you’re a Comcast subscriber in Philly, you can watch the Phillies anywhere on your mobile device. My preferred device for television watching on the go is my iPad, but you’ll be able to use whatever mobile device by using the NBC Sports app.
If you’re a Verizon subscriber, you can still stream the games online by having CSN and TCN in your package.
The deal also include pre-game and post-game shows. Press release highlights below:
The addition of MLB authenticated in-market streaming completes the local streaming portfolio for the NBC Sports Regional Networks, which also includes local NBA and NHL live streaming. The RSNs first introduced NBA streaming in 2014 and last fall announced the addition of NHL in-market streaming, beginning with the 2016-17 season.
Subscribers can access live MLB, NBA and NHL games, as well as other sports programming, anywhere in the United States. During the 2017 MLB season, all in-market MLB games will be streamed on the respective local CSN regional network site on PCs as well as on the NBC Sports app—NBC Sports Group’s live streaming product for desktops, mobile devices, tablets and connected TVs. The NBC Sports app is available on the iTunes App Store, Google Play, Windows Store, Roku Channel Store, Apple TV and Amazon Fire.
