Baseball fans will be happy to hear that the official MLB.com At Bat app will support Chromecast soon with an update that should be rolling out today. That means you can wirelessly stream live games from your Android device to your TV (assuming you have the handy Chromecast HDMI dongle). The new feature is locked behind a hefty MLB.TV Premium $24.99 monthly subscription or $129.99 annual membership. There’s also a more lightweight $2.99 monthly plan available for the At Bat app, though you won’t be getting Chromecast support in that instance. Also keep in mind that there are certain blackout periods where live games aren’t available, depending on where you’re streaming from.
Other recent additions to the Chromecast family include Flixster, Rhapsody, BBC, and plenty of others. How often do you use Chromecast? Any big baseball fans already susbcribing to MLB.TV Premium? Between the high monthly costs and blackouts getting in the way, you’d really have to love the game to get in on this.
