MLB reduces Facebook Live broadcasts, still plans six social-geared streams

first_imgMLB has scaled back its partnership with Facebook Live in 2019, as first reported by Morning Consult, and confirmed by Sporting News. After broadcasting 25 games exclusively on the social media service last year (and 26 overall), it will show six non-exclusive games on Facebook Live this campaign.The moves comes as MLB has expanded its multimedia production elsewhere, partnering with Twitter for hitter-specific live streams, teaming up with Sporting News’ parent company DAZN for a nightly live look-in show called “ChangeUp” and adding MLB.TV to Amazon Prime video. It also brokered a streaming deal with Sling TV. An MLB official did tell Sporting News on Friday that the style of the 2019 broadcasts on Facebook, while not exclusive, will still be social-focused, meaning out-of-market viewers will have the opportunity to interact with announcers and relay questions they want posed to players and managers.There will also still be game recaps produced by MLB, as well as weekly recaps for all 30 teams.Facebook said it’s still “early in the days of having live sports,” meaning year-to-year changes are expected as it tests out what works with its audience. MLB declined to announce which six games will be broadcast on Facebook but said there will be one every month of the regular season.“Collaborating with Facebook will again drive the creation of new ways for us to deliver content to baseball fans that engage on the platform daily,” an MLB spokesman wrote in a statement. “Facebook provides a community-focused environment that will allow for fans to connect with their favorite teams via custom on-demand content and live game action driven by an original MLB Network social-first broadcast production.”MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZNSporting News reported last fall that MLB perceived its 2018 partnership with Facebook as a successful experiment, and an official expressed optimism that exclusive Facebook Live broadcasts would continue in the same vein.last_img read more
