Major League Baseball is not raising the price on the 2022 edition of MLB.TV for a limited time. The price is now $129.99, which was the same as it was for the 2021 season.
However, the league says the regular price will be $139.99 after the ‘limited time’ promotion is over. The MLB TV web site does not say when the price will be changed to $139.99.
MLB.TV is also offering a single-team plan for $109.99, which is the same price as in 2021. The price after the limited time promotion for the single-team option will be $119.99.
When the new prices go into effect, they will represent a $10 increase in both the full package and the season-team option. In 2021, MLB TV raised the full package price by $8 and the single-team plan by $16.
For $129.99, a MLB.TV subscriber can watch every 2022 out-of-market game on 400 supported devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, computers, smart phones and tablets, among others. The $129.99 also entitles you to watch select live spring training games without blackouts, and full-game archives of every 2021 regular season game content via on demand.
Local blackouts still apply in the 2022 MLB TV package. You cannot watch the team or teams in your local market with a MLB.TV subscription. You can determine which teams would be blacked out in your zip code here.
MLB’s 2022 season is scheduled to start on April 7 after the original opening date was delayed due to the player lockout which was settled last week.
MLB TV, which offers a free seven-day trial, will not include Friday night doubleheader games that will stream on Apple TV+ or Sunday games that are expected to stream on Peacock.
