MLB.tv coming to second-generation Apple TV

Major League Baseball (MLB) has announced that MLB.tv streaming will soon be available for the Apple TV. According to a page on MLB’s website, users will need to sign in with the username and password associated with their MLB.tv subscription to gain access to the content. Features will include select Spring Training games, a full slate of Regular Season games, HD streaming where available, both live and archived games, home and away broadcasts, and quick navigation to run-scoring plays or a particular at bat. The feature appears in the Apple TV’s Internet menu, directly below Netflix, and requires Apple TV Software 4.2. Interestingly, code found within an early Apple TV Software 4.3 beta—incorrectly linked by some to a gaming service—indicated that Apple planned to offer a sporting event streaming service on the device, although MLB.tv was not specifically mentioned. MLB.tv’s subscription packages start at $100/year or $20/month.

It should be noted that iOS updates for ATV can be done from the ATV itself (i.e. no separate download or cable required).

#1,

Very true, but at the time of posting the update wasn’t yet available through the automatic software update feature. That has since changed, and the article has been updated appropriately.
