Apple Releases September’s ‘Friday Night Baseball’ Schedule, Keeps Games Free
Apple is nearing the home stretch of its first season offering streamed Major League Baseball games, and the company has announced its slate of Friday Night Baseball games for September on Apple TV+.
The games, Apple said, will once again be free, and not require a subscription to its streaming service. And because the baseball regular season ends in early October, this almost certainly means that the Apple streams will remain free for the entire 2022 regular season.
Apple also announced that the games will be available in four more countries: Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Germany, and Italy joining the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Korea, and the United Kingdom.
The announced September schedule consists of many games that will likely impact playoff positioning. As it has all year, the schedule features two games each night, on the first four Friday nights of the month. There are no games listed, as of now, on Friday, Sept. 30.
