“We loved working with MLB last season to bring games to fans across the world and we saw an average of 1.2 million fans tuning in to each game,” said Tim Katz, Head of Sports and News Partnerships, YouTube. “YouTube offers fans a unique experience that is free and easy to use and allows them to engage with their favorite teams. Though this season is unlike any other, we’re thrilled to bring this great content to our users.”
Every game will be available to viewers in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico for free on the MLB YouTube channel.
