You knew it was coming. ESPN cuts the middle man. The streaming service, ESPN + launches at $49.99 a year or $5 a month, will feature live sports, and other features but not the entire cable channel.
YouTube TV streaming service just added the MLB Network to their service. The partnership was announced and promoted last year during the world series. This recent extension of the partnership adds MLB live television channel to YouTube TV, bringing them into the company of ABC, Fox, and ESPN; which already are available on the streaming service.
