Apple has announced that it is bringing Friday Night Baseball to Apple TV+.

Apple announced the news during its March 8 event and confirmed that baseball fans in the United States and Canada will also have access to live streams and MLB replays, 24/7.

In addition to "Friday Night Baseball," fans in the US will be able to enjoy "MLB Big Inning," a live show featuring highlights and look-ins airing every weeknight during the regular season. Baseball fans in the US and Canada will also have access to a new 24/7 livestream with MLB game replays, news and analysis, highlights, classic games, and more, as well as a full complement of on-demand programming, including highlights and MLB-themed original content.

Apple says that people will be able to watch their games on all of the same devices they can watch other Apple TV+ content — TV hardware, iPhones, iPads, and much more. Apple also says that people will be able to watch Friday Night Football "for a limited time, without the need for a subscription."

The new baseball show will be available in a number of countries on day one with more coming online.

"Friday Night Baseball" will be available on Apple TV+ in the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Korea, and the United Kingdom, and will expand to additional countries at a later date.
