Fans of soccer watching matchThis week FOX Sports and Major League Baseball agreed to renew their $4 billion TV deal through 2021. Full details have not been announced, but according to MLB expanded streaming, social media, and highlight rights are included.

What exactly this means for cord cutters is still unknown, but hopefully, this means FOX’s 52 regular season games and the World Series will become more friendly to streaming.

“Major League Baseball has been a cornerstone of FOX Sports since 1996,” said FOX Sports CEO and Executive Producer Eric Shanks in a statement. “It’s an honor to have shared countless historic moments with our viewers over the last 22 seasons. We are extremely proud to continue to be the home of Major League Baseball’s jewel events for the next decade.”

TBS and ESPN still have rights to different MLB games, so this deal does not give MLB expanded streaming rights to all MLB games. Hopefully, the MLB keeps putting pressure on their media partners to expand streaming rights for cord cutters.
