If you're a baseball fan, chances are you're already aware of the Major League Baseball's At Bat app for streaming live games with a MLB.tv subscription. Now, the league is bringing it's 24/7 news, analysis and more from the MLB Network to your computer and mobile device, too. As Forbes reports, this is the first time that a league-owned TV network has offered a live authenticated stream of its around-the-clock broadcast on the desktop, iOS and Android. All of the network's studio shows, original programs, game telecasts and more will stream to the At Bat app, but there's a catch: you'll need a cable subscription to access it.

Like Fox does with its post-season games and other sports content on Fox Sports Go, you'll be required to sign in to your cable or satellite account before watching. Subscribers on AT&T U-verse, Bright House, Cablevision, Cox, DirecTV, DISH, Time Warner Cable and Verizon FiOS can expect to access MLB Network coverage. You probably noticed that Comcast and Charter aren't on that list, which means those customers won't have access at launch. And if you're wondering about MLB's infuriating local blackout policy, yes, that still applies here as well. If you encounter a blackout, you'll be served another game or some other programming.
