SNY, the TV home of the New York Mets, said today that it will live stream the Mets games this season in-market. That means a New York area viewer could watch his Mets online on a tablet, connected TV, computer or smart phone whether he’s home or away from home.
The online broadcast will be available at no extra cost to pay TV customers who subscribe to SNY through their cable or satellite operator.
The subscriber will have to type in his or her pay TV user name and password to access the online edition of the game which will be streamed at SNY.TV and the NBC Sports app.
With the addition of SNY, 22 MLB teams will now be available via streaming in-market during the 2017 season. Fox began in-market streaming for 15 MLB teams on their regional sports channels in 2016 and Comcast said last month it would offer the same for six more teams on their NBC regional sports channels in 2017.
In addition, the Toronto Blue Jays are streamed in-market in the Toronto area through SportsNet.
