Major League Baseball and interactive TV authoring software and services provider Ensequence today unveiled a new way for baseball lovers to get their fix of keeping up with multiple teams at the same time. New technology being shown off on MLB.com will allow viewers to watch six live games at the same time.
MLB.TV Mosaic, said the two organizations, will provide viewers with selectable audio, statistics and the ability to click to any one game on a full screen. It also alerts fantasy baseball league players when live games involving their fantasy players and teams are available. During times when live games are not available, fans can watch on-demand games, outtakes from the previous night’s games and interactive long-form advertisements. MLB.TV Mosaic will be available to MLB.TV subscribers free at MLB.com next week.
“MLB.com has been the recognized leader in broadband TV content since 2002, and we’re proud they selected us to deliver the richest multimedia experience sports fans have ever seen,” said Dalen Harrison, Ensequence president and CEO, in a statement. “We’ve raised the bar for broadband TV by giving MLB.com subscribers the option to watch up to six live games on one screen, which has never been done before. With this application, we’re taking everything we’ve perfected about interactive TV over the past six years to broadband TV.”
