Appearances by Every Division-Leading Team During the Month of May
Live Games Available Daily on ESPN+ During the 2018 MLB Season
All Available on the New, Re-Imagined ESPN App & ESPN.com
Baseball fans now have a new way to watch daily, live games all season long with the launch of ESPN+, the first-ever multi-sport, direct-to-consumer subscription streaming service from The Walt Disney Company Direct-to-Consumer and International (DTCI) group and ESPN. Fans can now subscribe to ESPN+ for just $4.99 a month (or $49.99 per year).
On ESPN+, fans will have access to a daily MLB game. This adds to ESPN’s already extensive schedule of more than 100 national baseball telecasts on its linear networks including its exclusive Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell game of the week and Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown presented by Chevrolet pre-game show. ESPN’s MLB telecasts will also remain available through authenticated “TV everywhere” streaming on the new, re-imagined ESPN App.
The MLB on ESPN+ schedule began April 12 and has already highlighted many of MLB’s top stars including Bryce Harper, José Altuve, Shohei Ohtani and many more. May’s schedule includes every division-leading team, with multiple appearances by the Boston Red Sox, New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers. The May schedule also includes multiple appearances by the star-studded New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels. The Angels and Albert Pujols will be available on ESPN+ tomorrow, April 27, against the Yankees and Tuesday, May 1, against the Baltimore Orioles, as Pujols closes in on the momentous 3,000 career hits milestone (currently at 2,994).
Local market blackout restrictions will apply to ESPN+ out-of-market games. Fans in local markets will get an alternative game on ESPN+.
