Today’s Brewers-Reds game is going to be harder to find than usual (though, considering how they’ve been playing, maybe that’s not such a bad thing). Indeed, for fans looking for tonight’s 7:10 p.m. first pitch from American Family Field, you’ll have to head over to Apple TV+ for the TV broadcast.
The game is part of Apple and MLB’s “Friday Night Baseball” series, the latest attempt by streaming services to stake their claim in live sports broadcasting. Several Brewers games have already broadcast exclusively on YouTube this season and in recent years, as opposed to their usual home at Bally Sports Network.
While Apple TV+ is a subscription streaming service, Friday night’s Brewers broadcast will not require a subscription to watch and will be free to stream (though you do need a Apple ID). To tune in, fans can simply open the Apple TV and select the game from the menu, or select the MLB.tv app and hit the “Apple TV+ Game” button. Fans can also watch on their laptops or mobile devices by heading to tv.apple.com/ and log in with your Apple ID. Not quite as simple as the YouTube broadcasts – but still fairly easy.
