Just saw this news story over on one of my tech sites I visit regularly.
Apple has signed a deal with Major League Baseball to bring sports highlights to its iTunes Store for $1.99 USD. The content includes a “MLB.com Daily Rewind” highlight show, as well as two weekly “Game of the Week” full-length games.
To help promote its new downloads, MLB is offering a free “2007 Season Preview Show” to all iTunes users. An iTunes “Season Pass” for the highlight show will cost $7.99 USD, and run $19.99 USD for all full games. Apple TV owners will also be able to stream the highlights and games directly to the television for viewing in the living room.
I use iTunes all the time, so I am downloading their free season preview episode as I speak. I’m not entirely sure if I’d want to pay money for highlights. That’s what Baseball Tonight is for. However, if you’re an iTunes fan, you might want to check out their preview – it’s free for everyone. If you have iTunes on your computer, click this to be taken directly to the preview in their online store.
