MLB Looks to Stream Live Local Games Online Next Season PDF Print E-mail

MLB on laptopThe technology is in place, but can the politics be overcome?

MLB is looking to stream local games online next year, even though plans fizzled for such an arrangement this year with Chicago Cubs and White Sox games through Comcast. According to Ourand and Fisher of the Sports Business Journal (SBJ), an MLB/Comcast deal was close at hand this past spring which would have had MLB Advanced Media stream the games for free at the local market level. The geo-location technology is reportedly in place to track just those subscribers to Comcast Sports Net (CSN) Chicago. The deal would have had Comcast and MLBAM splitting ad revenues.

The deal fell apart when the sides – MLBAM and CSN Chicago – couldn’t agree whether games would be streamed on their respective sites, something that would have garnered increased traffic.

As reported by the SBJ:

The MLB-Comcast talks are important on several levels. As the quality of video streaming continues to improve, the application of local market streaming has taken on new prominence in recent months. NBA executives recently disclosed plans to stream games locally starting next season, a first for a major U.S. sports league. That will likely set up a battle between the league, the individual clubs, regional sports networks and cable operators.

The deal has heavy political overtones. MLB Advanced Media, the highly successful, centralized digital wing of MLB, has done exceptionally well selling MLB.TV, the online counterpart to MLB Extra Innings, the MLB out of market package. But some clubs are looking to gain extra revenues at the local level without having to deal with revenue sharing. The Red Sox and Orioles are reportedly pushing hard to allow in-market streaming of games.

The difficulty is that the MLBAM Constitution was never drafted to deal with the rapid changes in technology that have developed since MLBAM was created. As further reported:

“This is all a very, very complicated matter,” said one club official. “Who really has these [digital] rights and how do we best bring them to the marketplace? That’s the big question. And though we’re in sort of a holding pattern right now, it’s no doubt the single biggest economic issue our industry is facing.”

MLBAM and ESPN Reach Five Year Digital Rights Agreement PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 21 August 2008 13:25

MLB and ESPNNearly seven months ago, and only three years into a seven-year, $140M agreement with MLBAM, ESPN opted out of the agreement with MLBAM over digital rights. Today the sides announced a new agreement.

 

The sides announced that they have reached a digital rights agreement that will extend and expand their current agreement through 2013. The agreement includes rights for ESPN.com, ESPN360.com, ESPN’s mobile initiatives (ESPN Mobile TV, ESPN Mobile Publishing, ESPN MVP), content on emerging platforms including video game consoles, interactive television and portable devices (ex: iTunes/iPod, Zune) and syndication of ESPN-licensed content. The deal also covers all new platforms ESPN creates or develops relationships with through the end of the agreement, and includes digital rights that extend worldwide (except select Asian and Pacific Rim markets). Paired with ESPN and Major League Baseball’s most recent television deal and ESPN’s deal for exclusive U.S. terrestrial radio rights, the combination represents ESPN’s most comprehensive multi-platform collection of baseball rights ever.

 

Financial terms were not released.

 

“This agreement further solidifies the great relationship we have with Major League Baseball and together with our television deal, allows us to bring the game of baseball to more fans than ever before,” said George Bodenheimer, President, ESPN, Inc. and ABC Sports. “Our goal is always to deliver sports to fans across any platform, and this is yet another agreement that fulfills that strategy.

Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig said, “Major League Baseball is very pleased with this opportunity to enhance our partnership with ESPN. We have a great relationship with ESPN and this new agreement will bring our game to our fans in a variety of new and exciting ways.”

In the past three years , ESPN has reached nearly 20 major multimedia rights agreements.

Under the new agreement, ESPN digital media’s coverage of Major League Baseball will include:

  • Live Game Streaming: ESPN360.com, ESPN’s signature online TV network, and ESPN Mobile TV can simulcast all Sunday Night Baseball, Monday Night Baseball and Wednesday Night Baseball telecasts. ESPN digital media platforms will also be able to stream the Home Run Derby and other special MLB events for which ESPN has television rights.
  • Expanded Online and Mobile Highlights: ESPN.com and its network of global sites will feature more highlights than ever before, and ESPN’s Mobile platforms (ESPN Mobile TV, ESPN MVP) will have newly expanded rights to deliver video highlights by themselves and as part of original shows.
  • Interactive Television: ESPN will work with MLBAM to develop interactive TV applications around baseball games and content.
  • Interactive Online Applications: ESPN digital media platforms will continue development and enhancement of ESPN GameCast and may develop other interactive applications.
  • Alternative Platforms: ESPN will be able to deliver MLB content as part of its offerings on alternative platforms, such as content download services like Apple’s iTunes Store and console game systems such as Microsoft XBox Live, as well as other platforms which may be developed during the course of the agreement.
  • Content Syndication: ESPN will have rights to syndicate some of the MLB content including video and data, that it presents on ESPN digital media platforms to ESPN digital media syndication partners.

With just two weeks left in the balloting process, races across many positions are tightening up and appear to be too close to call. Among those positions are American League catcher, outfield and second base and National League shortstop, outfield and first base.

“These final two weeks of balloting figure to prove pivotal,” said Dinn Mann, Executive Vice President, Content, MLB.com. “Leaders in numerous categories frequently change as a result of 6-8 million votes being cast online every day.”

The Monster 2008 All-Star Game Online Ballot, which is available in four languages (English, Spanish, Japanese and traditional Chinese), closes at 11:59 p.m. (EDT) on Wednesday, July 2.

MLB and Indiana Jones
It may have been the unexpected nature of it appearing on schedules. It may have been the memory of the ill-fated Spiderman 2 promotion. But the churn regarding the current Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull promotion that MLB is engaged in runs the gambit. Most of the commentary has been negative in tone, which is surprising given the fact that integrating promotions into baseball is as natural as a hot dog and a beer at the ballpark. Bill Veeck might have said the promo is blasé.

Given all the hubbub, we contacted MLB Advanced Media, who runs MLB.com, to get the details around the promotion. As spokesman Matthew Gould said, “It is a fairly straightforward ad campaign for the movie.”

  • The promo is online only in nature.
  • The headshot of Harrison Ford on May 22nd (the release date for “Kingdom of the Skull”) is within every team schedule.
  • The promo ties in with the online Indiana Jones Legends Sweepstakes
  • Banner ads for the movie on MLB.com (possibly other BAM controlled sites, such as MiLB.com, although not confirmed)
  • Email campaign for those registered through MLB.com and within BAM’s database.
  • The campaign runs, in total, through May 25th.

That’s it.

Larger, more intrusive e-Campaigns have been waged. It’s that, well... this is baseball. The ability for many to disconnect the digital realities with advertisement seem to stop when anything “MLB” is attached to it. As mentioned, this is strictly an online campaign. There are no MLB related cross-platform promotions (imagine seeing Derek Jeter with an Indiana Jones hat running through a booby-trapped world of baseballs flying out of walls). And, most notably, there are no logos on the basepads. MLB seems willing (and rightfully so) to do movie promo tie-ins. Doing an on-the-field tie-in seems well into the future after the backlash on Spiderman 2.

Indiana Jones MLB
In 2004, MLB and Columbia Pictures had big plans for the boldest promotion activation that baseball had ever seen. The plan was to run a 6”x6” Spiderman 2 logo on first, second, and third base for the Interleague games running for all of 3 days (June 11-13). 

That story never happened. MLB pulled back from the promo after hearing outcries from purists.

Four years later, the idea of promoting a movie along with baseball is alive and well, if only for the fact that the promotion is less intrusive: it’s not on the field of play.

This time around it’s Paramount Pictures and MLB working together on the promotion of the May 22nd release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (maybe for this one, the title was too long to fit on the bases?).

MLBAM, through MLB.com, has worked to place Harrison Ford’s image on every schedule matching the street date for the upcoming flick, May 22nd (see the Red Sox schedule for an example ).

But, the image on the schedules is only a small part of the campaign.

MLB.com is running the Indiana Jones Legends Sweepstakes. As posted on the sweepstake’s page, “Win a trip for two to see your favorite baseball hero including game tickets, airfare and hotel.” They then add in, “The lucky winner will also win two tickets to see the new movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in theaters May 22nd.”

The promotion with Paramount was launched this past Friday, the 2nd and runs through May 25th according to MLBAM spokesman Matthew Gould.

More details are coming on this as I hear back from Gould on Tuesday. Interested in hearing about how television, and other activities might play into the promo leading up to the 22nd.

Current advertising clients include 2K Sports, vitaminwater, and Sony PlayStation, among other major brands.

"In all of my years in the electronic media space on the buying or selling side, I have not experienced an offering like Yardbarker," Ware said. "Yardbarker offers a very unique sales proposition, combining the best of the sports blogosphere, star athletes and social media that enablesadvertisers to reach a large and elusive audience not found through traditional outlets. Yardbarker also affords its advertising partners social currency through its content offerings, which remains an important and big opportunity for brands trying to stake a claim in the new media environment. Our fans know the score; they crave more when they visit the Yard. It's a very exciting proposition."
