MLB bloopers get a shelf life
Following in the footsteps of the NFL, Major League Baseball plans to limit the amount of photos, audio, and video news relating to games that organizations can post online.
News sites can post no more than seven photos from each game and will not be allowed to create a photo gallery, according to Ars Technica. Audio and video will be limited to two minutes each and cannot be streamed live.
Further, all non-text content — photos, audio, and video — created in a Major League ballpark can be published for a limit of 72 hours.
Baseball's online content is controlled by MLB Advanced Media and has been on the forefront of streaming professional sports.
It currently offers fans the ability to watch televised games online for $14.95 per month or $89.95 per season for the MLB.TV basic package. The content is also monetized through advertising.
