SiriusXM Radio and Major League Baseball have signed a six-year extension of their rights agreement. The deal will now make MLB game broadcasts available on both Sirius and XM satellite radios, starting today.
SiriusXM has been a broadcast partner with Major League Baseball since 1995. SiriusXM will continue to air live play-by-play of every regular and postseason MLB game, as well as select spring training and Spanish-language game broadcasts, through the 2021 season. The service is available to subscribers with Sirius radios on either a Premier or All Access package. All MLB games will continue to air on all XM radios.
“Baseball has been an essential part of our programming lineup and we’re very happy to extend our relationship with MLB to deliver the games to our subscribers for many years to come,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “We’re especially pleased to now offer the games to SiriusXM subscribers whether they listen through Sirius radios, XM radios, the SiriusXM App or online.”
“SiriusXM has been a valuable partner providing our fans with the ability to listen to every MLB game on the growing platform of satellite radio,” said Tim Brosnan, MLB Executive Vice President, Business. “We are proud that Major League Baseball content has been an important contributor to the growth of satellite radio and we look forward to continuing this relationship into the next decade.”
