MLB Will Bench Baseball Fans Caught Streaming Games

Baseball fans hoping to use Meerkat app or Periscope App to stream live video from Opening Day games today might strike out. Major League Baseball will watch for egregious self-streaming activity, said Bob Bowman, president of business and media for the league. […] MLB has talked with the league’s 30 teams to remind them of the policy for fans and credentialed media, he said. Teams are on alert. In Los Angeles, Ralph Esquibel, vice president of IT for the Los Angeles Dodgers, said he expects increased adoption of streaming apps and a consequent increase in bandwidth consumption. – Kim S.
