Manfred Announces 3-Year Deal With FOX To Have MLB Games Streamed In-Market

As part of the quarterly owners meetings in Dallas, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred announced that the league and FOX have reached a 3-year deal to provide games streamed in-market to computers and mobile devices. The deal encompasses 15 regional sports networks. The following teams that have rights deals with FOX Sports RSNs that will be streamed in-market in 2016:

Atlanta Braves
Cincinnati Reds
Cleveland Indians
Texas Rangers
Detroit Tigers
Kansas City Royals
Los Angeles Angels
Miami Marlins
Milwaukee Brewers
Minnesota Twins
New York Yankees
Arizona Diamondbacks
San Diego Padres
St. Louis Cardinals
Tampa Bay Rays….

On top of the 15 clubs that will get in-market, the Toronto Blue Jays have had in-market streaming in place already. With the Blue Jays calling all of Canada their home market, the deal was much easier to reach.
