Apple’s Friday Night MLB Games Are No Longer Free





Last year Apple TV started to stream MLB games on Friday nights. The games would air for free last year, but now in 2023, you will need to pay for them if you want to watch MLB Friday night games.

This year you will need to subscribe to Apple TV+ if you want to watch Friday Night MLB games. This will give you access to 25 weeks of Friday Night Baseball starting on April 7th, 2023.

“We can’t wait for ‘Friday Night Baseball’ to start up again, and we’re excited for fans to experience everything new we’re bringing this season,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Services. “Apple TV+ truly has something for everyone, from two live baseball games every Friday night, to an incredible slate of award-winning original films and series — there’s never been a better time to sign up.”

Beginning MLB Opening Day on March 30, fans in the U.S. and Canada can enjoy the MLB Big Inning whip-around show featuring live look-ins and in-game highlights every weeknight on Apple TV+. In April, a full slate of MLB-related content, including Countdown to First PitchMLB Daily Recap, and MLB This Week on Apple TV+.
