The relationship between sports and social media has been evolving since Facebook hit the scene in 2004. Various platforms have tested live events from Twitter’s NFL experimenting in 2016 to the full Thursday Night NFL schedule hosted by Amazon Prime. Now it appears that Major League Baseball wants to wade into social streaming with their 2018 season Facebook Watch schedule.
Today’s the game between Milwaukee and St. Louis is exclusively available on Facebook Watch, and we list them all on the SportsTV Guide‘s streaming section. Facebook Watch will host 25 games exclusively on the platform for broadcast. Most games will be shown on Wednesdays and will include both game action and curated content provided by MLB Network. The Facebook Watch deal is likely the beginning of an unstoppable trend.
