Mets fans rejoice! We can now experience the colorful and entertaining commentary of Gary, Ron and Keith on the go.
On Wednesday, SportsNet New York (SNY) announced that Met games will now be able to be streamed over the internet with a valid SNY subscription. The streaming will be done through the NBC Sports app.
In an effort to expand access to Americas Pastime, NBC Sports is looking to make every MLB team available to steam on the go. Recently, NBC gobbled up the five-team contingent that streams on Comcast and added them to their repertoire of streaming sports.
This move is a part of NBC Sports’ initiative labeled “TV Everywhere”. A program focused around the noble goal of expanding mobile streaming to as many sports clubs as possible.
In addition to home games, subscribers will also be privy to away games through SNY.tv. The only exception being that they must be within the US.
With this deal, just eight teams are left without streaming options for fans all around the country. These teams fall under the rights of NESN (Boston), SportsNet LA (Dodgers), ROOT Sports (Seattle, Colorado, Houston, Pittsburgh) and MASN (Baltimore, Washington).
“With this service now in place, we are excited to expand SNY’s scope and to deliver exclusive Mets coverage to our dedicated fans both at home and on the go,” explained President of SNY, Steve Raab in a statement on the deal. “As we prepare for another season of Mets baseball, it was very important to us at SNY that we have a streaming component ready for our fans in time for Opening Day.”
In an off season of uneventfulness and nothingness, this piece of news is a refreshing positive in an otherwise dismal few months. Now, Met fans can look forward to seeing their favorite orange and blue on screens all across the nation.
