ESPN, Fox Sports to broadcast on Youtube’s new TV streaming service

This could be huge.

YouTube will offer a new television streaming service online for $35 per month and the package will reportedly include ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, ESPNEWS, SEC Network, Big Ten Network, FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2 and NBC Sports Network, according to Bloomberg.

“YouTube TV includes major sports networks like ESPN and regional sports networks like Fox Sports Networks and Comcast SportsNet, so you can watch your favorite NBA or MLB teams,” YouTube said in a press release. “We’ve also partnered with local TV stations, so you’ll also get sports and local news based on where you live.”

YouTube does not have the broadcasting right from Turner to show some NBA games, the NCAA Tournament and some Major League Baseball.

Exclusive: Facebook in talks to live stream one MLB game per week - sources

Facebook Inc (FB.O) is in talks with Major League Baseball to live stream one game per week during the upcoming season, which could be a key win as the social media platform works to offer more live sports, according to two people familiar with the situation.

Facebook has pushed to sign deals with owners of sports rights to live stream their games, going after an audience that competitor Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) is also trying to capture, according to sports media consultants….

“Facebook is aggressively going after sports content and they are now one of a number of competitors to traditional media outlets that are going after sports programming,” said sports media consultant Lee Berke. “It makes perfect sense that they would be going after name brand properties like the MLB.”

The companies were in advanced talks, according to one source. It was unclear which games MLB would live stream on Facebook. A representative for Facebook and MLB declined to comment.

By partnering with Facebook, MLB would get access to a young audience at a massive scale, consultants said.

Report: Amazon wants to add live sports streams to Prime | Ars Technica

I’d be happy with being able to stream the MLB Network without a cable TV package. (Of course, I can’t even stream with Xfinity.)
