Facebook slides into live streaming deal with MLB

Terms were undisclosed, but Facebook likely won’t pay a dime in this partnership. The [MLB] games are not exclusive to Facebook, which will stream from the feed of a local broadcast rights holder. This is likely the very early stages of a test of viewer receptiveness to watching games live on Facebook. The 20 games currently set to be streamed are a tiny portion of the MLB’s over 2,400 regular season games. – Kevin Gallagher, Business Insider http://ift.tt/2qMAy6a
