Friday Night Baseball is Coming to Apple TV+ When the Lockout Ends

If baseball team owners and players come to terms, Apple TV+ subscribers will get to watch Major League Baseball on Friday nights.

Apple TV+ Friday Night Baseball

One of the most exciting announcements from today’s Apple Event had nothing to do with the iPhone, iPad, or new overpriced Apple desktop computer that will run you almost $4,000 with the monitor.

It was announced that Apple TV+ streaming service subscribers will get access to select US major league baseball games on Friday Nights for the 2022 season.

Before you get too excited about this — you need to be aware that the players have been locked out by the owners and it is very possible that the 2022 MLB season will not happen.

We know it’s probably difficult with $5 gasoline to feel sorry for players making millions of dollars each season, but the owners hold all of the cards here for the simple reason that owning a professional sports team is unlikely to be their only source of income.

Apple has no sway over this situation but it’s interesting that they decided to announce this today with the first few weeks of the season already cancelled.

The games will be available to viewers in eight countries including: 

  • United States
  • Canada
  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • Puerto Rico
  • South Korea
  • United Kingdom

Tip: More countries are expected to be added.

For U.S. viewers, an additional show “MLB Big Inning” will also be available. This show will feature game highlights and behind-the-scenes features every weeknight during the regular season. 

Both U.S. and Canadian viewers will also be able to watch a new 24/7 livestream with MLB game replays, news and analysis, highlights, classic games, and more, on-demand programming, including highlights and MLB-themed original content.

Another bonus is that viewers will be able to watch the featured games without local blackout restrictions. If you have access to Apple TV+, you can watch the games even if they originate in your local area.

The Apple TV app is available on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV 4K and HD, and on, along with select smart TVs, gaming consoles, and cable set-top boxes.

Tip: For a limited time, you can watch Friday Night Baseball without the need for an Apple TV+ subscription – That is, if there is any baseball to watch.  The current subscription price is $4.99 per month after a 7-day free trial.
