Our long national nightmare appears to be over.
MLB.com is partnering with YouTube, ending a struggle that seems to have been around as long as the internet has existed. What this means is you’ll be able to view highlights from MLB games on YouTube rather than needing to wade through those choppy MLB.com highlights that never really worked correctly when you tried to add it to a blog or website.
For die-hard fans of the game, this is huge news.
This MLB.com YouTube channel will include highlight clips from every MLB game in 2013 as well as thousands of hours from MLBAM’s archives. In-season highlights will be available approximately two days after the respective games have been completed. Videos from MLB.com’s Baseball’s Best Moments library also will be included. MLBAM also will live stream two live games daily during the regular season, available for free and accessible exclusively outside of its core live video distribution territories: North America,Japan, Taiwan and South Korea.
And here’s the official MLB.com YouTube Channel, which should be getting more lively any day now. Kudos to baseball for finally getting out of the stone age and bucking traditional internet media.
