As you may recall, the MLB awarded exclusive broadcast rights of 13 regular season games from across the Major Leagues to YouTube.
For the second time this season, the Toronto Blue Jays game won’t be available on TV. The Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays will be featured as this week’s “MLB Game of the Week” on Thursday, September 5, broadcast exclusively on YouTube.
Those 13 games will not be available on television or through any other streaming service in Canada or the US. Usual television rights-holder Sportsnet will only be allowed broadcast the radio side of the game. A reminder that Sportsnet is not able to broadcast this on television or stream through Sportsnet NOW or Rogers Anyplace TV.
While this YouTube-only game may be a minor inconvenience for some, the game is free wherever you can access YouTube and no account sign-up is required. You just need access to YouTube or the YouTube app.
