MLB Deputy Commissioner Tony Petitti called the move, "a major creative step forward". "Community and conversation are central to both baseball and Facebook, and MLB Network's innovative broadcasts will bring these interactive and social elements of the game to life to fans around the world in new ways on our platform".
This will be the first time any major United States sports league has agreed to broadcast regular season games exclusively on the social network. Facebook game streaming is also the MLB's first digital-only broadcasts, and the interesting thing is, all 30 major league teams unanimously approved the deal. Neither MLB nor Facebook disclosed the financial terms, though people with knowledge of the matter put the price at $30 million to $35 million. All of the games that will stream exclusively on Facebook will take place in the afternoon and will be produced by the Major League Baseball so the viewing experience will be what fans are already familiar with. All of the content will be available on Facebook Watch.
The first game on Facebook Watch will be a matchup between the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Mets at Citi Field on Wednesday, April 4. It will be globally available aside from "select global markets", according to the press release.
The games add to Facebook's growing sports lineup.
Facebook offered $600 million for the rights to an Indian cricket league, losing out to Fox, and has been boosting its budget for content, including live sports and original shows. Given that Amazon has already paid $50 million to streaming Thursday night National Football League games a year ago, the MLB arrangement might be investing in a market that Facebook is already in.
