Q&A: What’s the deal behind Apple TV’s deal to show baseball games? We asked MLB. | Sports


LOS ANGELES — For decades, the way you look at your baseball team has been pretty much the same. You paid a cable or satellite company a monthly fee for a bunch of channels, many of which would never be watched.

Your team’s Regional Sports Network (or RSN) — SportsNet LA for the Dodgers, Bally Sports West for the Angels — was one such channel. If your team’s game has been selected for national broadcast – on ESPN, Fox, FS1, TBS or MLB Network – you can also find those channels in your package. You may need to research which channel will show the game of the day, but you have already paid to access it.
