Major League Baseball posts content to iTunes Store

The snow has melted, the birds are waking me up at hours of the morning I didn't know still existed, and Sunday is opening day for Major League Baseball. March hasn't ended yet but spring is definitely here. Today Major League Baseball and Apple have announced that they will be delivering in-game content as well as highlights via Apple's iTunes Store. 苏州美睫美甲

If you were expecting content similar to the NFL highlights, which we briefly reviewed back in September, you are in for a bit of a surprise. Instead of team by team highlights with a $7.99 "season pass," you can get a month's worth of 25-minute episodes of Daily Rewind (or pay the $1.99 for individual days at your leisure). You also—and here is where we differ from football—can download "Games of the Week" for $1.99 a pop, which are full versions of the best games from the American and National League. Full games! The full games are also available via "Seasons Pass" for $19.99 (it looks like for a month) where you will receive eight of the best games delivered to your desktop.

Major League Baseball could stop there and we would be more or less happy, but they don't! They will also be peddling "Baseball's Best" where they will be selling classic games "from the past" and weekly highlight roundups for $1.99 apiece. If they offer a certain game from September 29th, 1986 where a certain New England team plays Seattle, I know I will be buying.

When it comes right down to it, we could still get a foot of snow here in New England next week. But it's baseball season, and opening day is on Sunday; that's good enough for me. We will be sure to give you a little mini-review as soon as the first week of content is posted.
