Alongside the release of iOS 4.3 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, the Apple TV also received the update. And, with it came NBA League Pass and MLB.tv. This will allow Apple TV users to watch MLB and NBA games live on their Apple TV. You will need to pay a subscription fee to view the content, but non-subscribers will still get access to real-time scores and full-season stats.
I’m not a sports guy but I could see how this could make the Apple TV a “must buy” for baseball and basketball fans. And, this also opens the doors for other, similar offerings from big content providers in the future. The Apple TV is only going to get better from here.
