It was announced today that MLB.TV is now available for the Xbox 360. This is great news for baseball fans, as this service is among the finest video streaming subcriptions available. This service has been very established over the last 10 years and over the last 2 years alone has delivered fans over 500 million streams.
Today, MLB.TV Premium subcribers can watch Spring Training games as well as every out of market regular season game on their Xbox 360. Also, offered will be portability for their accounts over a variety of platforms. Also, MLB.TV Premium subscribers will get the MLB.com At Bat 12 mobile application for the iPhone, iPad & Android for free. Of course a Xbox Live Gold Membership is required, as is Kinect (to enjoy the fancier features). Looking at all this service has to offer it seems to be a must for Xbox 360 owning baseball fans.

out-of-market game, or catch it later from the game archives, which will

Xbox LIVE Gold Members, as well as a free Game of the Day.
— My Teams – Designate favorite teams and put them front and center,
making the live games, archives and recaps for selected favorite teams
appear front-and-center for immediate access.
— Every game in HD – MLB.TV delivers every game in beautiful streaming HD,
and most games give every fan the option of the Home or Away feed.
— Mini Guide – The Mini Guide gives you a quick preview of all of today’s
games right at the bottom of the screen, and makes it easier than ever
to switch between games.
— Split Screen – Allows fans to watch two games at once. Watch live games
on both screens or a live game on one while you catch up with a game
recap or archive game on the other. Both screens can be controlled
independently, pausing and rewinding each separately.
— Gesture Control and Voice Control with Kinect for Xbox 360 – Focus on
the action instead of looking for the remote. Navigate through the
