Amazon to Begin Exclusively Streaming New York Yankees Friday Night Baseball Games

Amazon Prime Video is set to begin streaming New York Yankees Friday night baseball games, beginning April 21. While the streamer has been making select Yankees games available since 2020 as a minority stakeholder in the team’s YES Network, the Friday night games are reportedly exclusive.

The games are available only to Prime Video users in the states of New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Streamers living outside of these regions can access Yankees games via Major League Baseball’s long-running MLB.TV subscription streaming service.

Apple TV+ Offering Limited Free Streaming Access to ‘Friday Night Baseball’ MLB Games

Apple TV+ is set to begin streaming for free select “Friday Night Baseball” games — beginning April 8 with the Houston Astros vs. Los Angeles Angels, and Washington Senators vs. New York Mets — as part of a seven-year, $595 million deal that affords the subscription streaming platform access to two Major League Baseball games a week. This is Apple’s first move into live sports programming.

For the first six weeks of the season, “Friday Night Baseball” will be available for free without subscription on Apple TV+ in the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Korea and the United Kingdom.

Streamers in the U.S. will also have access to “MLB Big Inning,” a live show featuring highlights and look-ins airing every weeknight during the regular season. North American streamers will also have access to a new 24/7 livestream with MLB game replays, news and analysis, highlights, classic games, and more, as well as a full complement of on-demand programming, including highlights and MLB-themed original content.

“Baseball has a special place in the heart of so many Apple customers — not just in the United States, but in many countries around the world. We’re proud to make Apple TV+ the home for great baseball moments throughout the season,” Peter Stern, VP of Services at Apple, said in a statement earlier this month.
