MLB.TV plays ball live with Sony PS3

On Thursday, major league baseball is expected to enable subscribers to watch live Webcasts of pro baseball games on Sony PlayStation 3 video game consoles.

Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM), the Internet arm of professional baseball, is one of the most successful online subscription services--along with the Wall Street Journal and Consumer Reports--and the No. 1 most profitable video-streaming service on the Web.

On Thursday, MLBAM is expected to enable subscribers to watch live Webcasts of pro baseball games on Sony PlayStation 3 video game consoles, the companies announced Wednesday evening.

As part of the partnership with Sony, MLBAM subscribers can watch video at up to 720p resolution and access all the offerings they typically get, such as full game archives, real-time highlights, and condensed games. In collaboration with MLBAM, Sony engineers have done a good job of streamlining the process of moving between games, checking past games, or simply checking scores from around the league.
