MLB network exits YouTube TV after contract dispute – The Hollywood Reporter

The MLB network is being phased out by YouTube TV after the two sides failed to reach an agreement to renew their contract, according to an email sent to YouTube TV subscribers on Tuesday.

While YouTube TV base plan subscribers will still be able to watch select National Majors baseball games on Fox, ESPN, and TBS, any recordings of saved content from the MLB Network will lost due to unsuccessful negotiations. (Before Tuesday, the MLB Network was available as part of YouTube’s $64.99 monthly base plan.)

“We apologize for the news and will continue to chat with MLB to advocate on your behalf, in the hope of reinstating their content on YouTube TV,” the email to subscribers read. A representative for the MLB Network, the league’s 24/7 channel with live games and studio programming, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

YouTube TV has previously been locked in shipping disputes with companies like NBCUniversal and Disney, but can often restore access after a short period of time.

Spring training for the 2023 MLB season begins on February 24, while the opening date is set for March 30.
