As soon as you feel the sun on your face and smell the ball park hot dogs, you know it's time to start enjoying the weather and watching America's favorite pastime: baseball. If you're a transplant living many miles away from your hometown team, you know the unfortunate feeling of scanning the cable guide and realizing your game isn't being broadcast. But if you're a baseball fan and a PlayStation owner, you'll be seeing a new option for streaming out-of-market games to your living room.
Sony is teaming up with Major League Baseball to bring live streaming video to PlayStation users through MLB.TV.
If your PlayStation is connected to the PlayStation Network online, you'll be able to gain access to the existing MLB.TV package and all the games that aren't being broadcast on TV. But the access is going to cost you an annual fee. The fee wasn't specified by the New York Times.
If you're interested in getting hooked up, the MLB-Playstation team-up will be available to internet-connected PlayStation users by the end of the week.
