"For the last three years MLB has been with us every step of the way as we have re-written the rules of wireless. This year we're doubling down - and expanding the relationship even further to include the Home Run Derbies and free MLB.TV for customers," said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. "This isn't just some corporate sponsorship. It's the combined effort of two passionate teams bringing even more amazing perks and game-changing moves to baseball fans over the next three years!"T-Mobile Simple Choice customers on qualifying plans are able to sign up for a full MLB.TV Premium subscription valued at $109.99 starting on April 3. To get the discount, customers will need to subscribe using the T-Mobile network.
The service will allow T-Mobile subscribers to watch 2,430 out-of-market regular season games live on their T-Mobile devices. It will take advantage of T-Mobile's BingeOn feature, so streaming MLB content on a device connected to the T-Mobile network will not count against data caps. MLB.TV Premium is available on Macs, iOS devices, the Apple TV, and a number of other consoles and set-top boxes.
Also included is a free premium subscription to MLB.com At Bat, something T-Mobile has given away in past years.
