I’m a big baseball fan and watch a lot of baseball during the season and postseason. Tonight, I’m watching the NY Mets and Nationals on Apple TV+, Friday Night Baseball. Pretty cool. I hope Apple expands their baseball and other sports coverage.
Here is more information on Apple TV+ and baseball coverage.
I’m watching now - I’m impressed with the camera angles, the commentators and the apple style graphics. Had a bit of trouble with the streaming at one point, but other than that, this is a first rate broadcast.
I read that they’re expecting more features as the season progresses.
They have regular commercial breaks. National advertisers (tech mostly) as you’d expect. It seems like a step up from RSN (regional sports network) games, but not at the ESPN show level. At least not yet.
I’m looking forward to how this develops. The first game was fun to watch - but I don’t follow either team so I wasn’t very invested in the game’s outcome.
I don’t have any cable packages, so 130 for the year is farrrrrr cheaper than a monthly cable bill for channels I don’t have time to watch, even if I wanted to. So for my situation I think it would be a good deal. Watching opening day while working yesterday was very nice. The streaming was a bit wonky, but nothing that I can’t live with.
Still going to try out Apple TV for a month to see what they’re doing.
