TV Answer Man, I’ve watched the first two weeks of baseball games on Apple. Have you noticed that the broadcasts and announcers are more laid back now compared to last year. Much better than last year!! Also, when does Peacock start doing their games? And will they be in 4K? Thanks!! — Eric, Erie, Pennsylvania.

Eric, I have noticed that the Apple TV+ MLB games are more chill than thrill this year. The company seems to have acknowledged that baseball fans are more laid back than most sports fans and appreciate a more subdued presentation. The Apple broadcasts are still entertaining, but the announcers are definitely calmer while the graphics have been toned down. It’s an improvement, says this reporter.

As for Peacock, the streaming service owned by NBC last year began offering an exclusive Major League Baseball game on Sunday mornings during the regular season. The game was only available on Peacock, which means it was not on any other channel, MLB TV, Extra Innings or regional sports network.

And the streamer will continue to offer exclusive MLB games on Sunday mornings during the 2023 season, starting this Sunday (April 23) with the Philadelphia Phillies-Colorado Rockies matchup at 12:05 p.m. ET from Citizens Bank Park.

Peacock will stream an NBC Sports-produced baseball game live in 19 of 20 weeks. Each game will feature NBC Sports-produced pre- and post-game shows on Peacock. The games will include start times of 11:35 a.m. ET (six games), 12:05 p.m. ET (10 games), and 1:05 p.m. ET (three games).

As for 4K, I asked an NBC Sports spokesman in February and his response was:

“Not this season.”

So no 4K for MLB on Peacock in 2023.

Below is the complete lineup of games on Peacock this season. Note that the May 7th game between the Orioles and Braves will also be broadcast on NBC.
