Watch MLB On Facebook Watch In 2018
In an effort to get more viewers from the "cord cutters" or "cord nevers", MLB has signed a deal with Facebook for the upcoming 2018 season.
25 afternoon games this year will be streamed exclusively on Facebook Watch via MLB Live, including a New York Mets game on Wednesday, April 4.
Facebook Watch was launched last August, and has streamed the six episode and popular Tom Brady docuseries/reality show "Tom Vs. Time".
You could have seen some games last year on Facebook, but this historic agreement includes some exclusivity rights, according to mlb.com. Similar to ESPN's Sunday night agreement, Facebook Watch will be the only platform covering these 25 upcoming games.
-- Wednesday, April 4: Philadelphia Phillies vs. New York Mets, 1:10 p.m.
-- Wednesday, April 11: Milwaukee Brewers vs. St. Louis Cardinals, 1:15 p.m.
-- Wednesday, April 18: Kansas City Royals vs. Toronto Blue Jays, 4:07 p.m.
-- Thursday, April 26: Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Philadelphia Phillies, 1:05 p.m.
Only April's schedule is currently available, with the rest of the 2018 season to announced later. Facebook is said to be paying anywhere between $30-35 million dollars for the streaming rights.
