BT Sport extends MLB rights, BBC to show London Series

UK pay-television broadcaster BT Sport has renewed its deal for Major League Baseball rights until the end of  2021, while public-service broadcaster the BBC has acquired rights to MLB’s upcoming London Series for 2019 and 2020.

BT Sport’s deal includes rights to regular-season games as well as post-season fixtures.

The 2019 London Series comprises two regular-season games between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox on June 29-30 at the London Stadium. Both games will be available on the BBC iPlayer streaming service and on the BBC Sport website.

The two games will be the first MLB fixtures to be played in Europe.
