iOS 4.2 brings MLB baseball, NBA basketball to Apple TV

iOS 4.3 has a little surprise in store for Apple TV sports fans -- integration of MLB baseball and NBA basketball. Sports has been one of the last strongholds of traditional broadcast, cable, and satellite. No longer.

Here's the MLB news:

Enjoy select Spring Training games and a full slate of regular season games on Apple TV. Regular Season features include:

  • HD Quality (where available)
  • LIVE and archived games
  • Home and away broadcasts*
  • Quick navigation to run scoring plays or a particular at bat

On your Apple TV, sign in with the username and password associated with your MLB.TV subscription.

NBA hasn't released any details yet but if you have league pass you should be good to go. The integration looks similar to Netflix -- it's built right in. Anyone trying it out yet?

[MLB, thanks everyone!]
