Roku Adds MLB Streaming
Roku today became one of the few if not only network media hub creators to offer Major League Baseball streaming. The addition gives anyone who already has an MLB.TV premium subscription the option of watching a game live if it's out of their home market, including in HD. Users can also watch recent games from any market on demand and still have access to MLB content on computers and elsewhere.
The Internet Player continues to cost $100; in a promo for its owners, a season-long MLB subscription has a one-time $35 price. Roku will push the feature out as part of its regular firmware updates but says that owners can manually install it today by checking for an update ahead of time.
