Apple TV+, which has an agreement with MLB to present two exclusive games on Fridays during the regular season, has set its baseball schedule for the month of August.

The games next month will begin with the Tampa Bay Rays visiting the Detroit Tigers at 6:30 p.m. ET on August 4. At 7 p.m. ET that night, Apple TV+ will stream the Houston Astros-New York Yankees matchup from Yankee Stadium.

Apple’s MLB broadcasts, which began last season as part of a multi-year agreement with the league, are exclusive, meaning they will not be available on any other service, including the regional sports networks, MLB TV or MLB Extra Innings.

How to Watch Apple TV+ For Free

There is something different about Apple’s games this season. They are no longer free. You will have to subscribe to Apple TV+ for $6.99 a month to watch the games. However…

Apple TV+ and MLB have extended their offer of two free months of Apple TV+. The promotion, which was set to expire on July 7, is now available until September 30.

That means you can sign up at any time during the rest of the MLB regular season and watch Apple TV+’s Friday night doubleheaders for free for two months.
