On Tuesday, March 8th, Apple and MLB announced that two MLB Friday night games including pre-game and post-game shows, will be exclusive on Apple TV+,which called "Friday Night Baseball. It will be avaliable in eight countries including UK, Mexico, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Puerto Rico, South Korea and Japan when the regular season start.
In addition, a program named "MLB Big Inning", will be offered to U.S. fans only, which is basically a overall review of plays and status of MLB.
Many MLB fans responsed to this on social media:
It seems like people who are not happy with this are due to two reasons:
1. We need to HAVE A GAME first.
2. Debatable Marketing.
After all these days spent, games cancelled, meetings failed, and now this. I start wondering what will happen next.
