Q. I’m thinking of signing up for the MLB.TV package of streaming games. But I was wondering if they were available in 4K. That would seal the deal for me. — Frank, Newark, New Jersey.
Frank, as you may know, the 2019 edition of MLB.TV, the league’s online package of out-of-market games, will cost $118.99. That’s a $3 increase over last year.
For that price, a subscriber can watch every 2019 out-of-market game on 400 supported devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, computers, smart phones and tablets, among others. The $118.99 also entitles you to watch more than 300 spring training games without blackouts, and full-game archives of every 2018 regular season content via on demand.
However, it will not allow you to watch the games in 4K. MLB.TV has yet to introduce that feature. The games are available in high-def, but not 4K.
If you want to watch baseball in 4K this season, satcasters DIRECTV and Dish offer some games in the new picture format. And if you want to stream MLB in 4K, fuboTV is expected to offer select contests in 4K during the 2019 season.
Frank, hope that helps. Happy Viewing!
