Opening Day streaming is ‘out’ of the question for baseball fans

MLB announced a deal this week with Dish Network that could lead to in-market streaming — but the satellite pay-TV provider needs to reach separate deals with Fox-owned YES Network and SportsNet New York (SNY). […] or any other regional sports networks, known as RSNs — is not likely as RSNs are trying to win those rights from MLB, a source close to the situation said. […] Fox Sports, which owns 15 of the 30 RSNs that carry MLB games, and Comcast, which owns stakes in six, including SNY, are locked in tense negotiations with baseball over in-market streaming. – Josh Kosman, New York Post
