Major League Baseball and SiriusXM have expanded their agreement to include additional streaming rights starting with the 2021 MLB season.
As such, for the first time SiriusXM subscribers with a streaming-only subscription have access to live play-by-play broadcasts of every MLB game as they listen on the SiriusXM app and on connected devices and speakers in their home.
The SiriusXM app offers 30 play-by-play channels dedicated to streaming the official radio broadcasts of every MLB team, giving fans the choice between the home and visiting team announcers for every game, all season long.
The 30 MLB play-by-play channels are also available on vehicles equipped with next-generation SiriusXM with 360L radios.
SiriusXM satellite subscribers continue to get access to every MLB game on both their SiriusXM radios and on the SiriusXM app. Certain subscriptions are required.
The new agreement also includes a multi-year extension of SiriusXM’s rights to broadcast every MLB game.
In related news, starting this month SiriusXM and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum will present an exclusive new podcast series, Black Diamonds. Hosted by museum president and historian Bob Kendrick, the podcast will showcase the history of the Negro Leagues, highlighting the players, people and events that shaped them, as well as spotlighting the leagues’ achievements and innovations during a time of segregation and inequality.
Black Diamonds, a SiriusXM original podcast, will debut on MLB’s Jackie Robinson Day (April 15). The 20-episode series can be heard on the SiriusXM app, Pandora, Stitcher and other podcast platforms.
