PlayStation 3 to Stream Pro Baseball


Sony is trying to make its Playstation 3 a digital hub for the home as the company is bringing baseball to America's living rooms on the video game console.

The new MLB.TV application for the PS3 that will be available from PlayStation Network, in both U.S. and Canada, later today. This app allows MLB.TV subscribers to watch every regular season game live in HD (local blackout restrictions do apply), with new interactive features designed exclusively for PSN.

Some of the unique interactive features that we show in the demo include:

- MLB Scoreboard ? See a schedule of today?s games (and set options to control whether or not you see the scores) - Home and Away Feeds ? Choose to watch either the home or away broadcast feed

- HD quality video and DVR functionality ? watch a live game in HD (with Live Game DVR functionality that lets you pause and rewind live games of fast-forward back to live game action)

- Season Archive ? Want to re-live a great moment? Go back and watch games you?ve missed from earlier in the season.

- Scrollable Linescore ? Go directly to any half-inning to watch only that portion of the game.

- Favorite Teams/Calendar Schedule ? Scroll through the entire 2010 Major League Baseball schedule in calendar format or designate your favorite team(s) to see the schedule for that team.

You can now download the app from the "Media" category on PlayStation Store, and launch it from the Video section of the XMB.

You must be an MLB.TV subscriber to fully utilize this app (some features, such as the calendar schedule, are available to everyone for free).

Sony offers two annual packages: MLB.TV is $99.95 and MLB.TV Premium is $119.95. If you aren?t already a MLB.TV subscriber.

Both Sony and Microsoft have been duking it out to control entertainment in the living room beyond games. They offer streaming movies through Netflix, and have been hunting for deals that can help transform their gaming consoles into one-stop-shops for content.

In Europe, Microsoft has struck deals with Vivendi unit Canal Plus and British pay-TV broadcaster BSkyB to provide content through the console, including soccer matches.

MLB.TV is also available on the Roku set-top box and through media provider Boxee.
