Overnight, the Apple TV app has began rolling out the new MLB sections for Friday Night Baseball, which starts streaming on Apple TV+ tomorrow.

In the US, and seven other countries, Apple TV+ will stream two baseball games every Friday night. The first matchup is the Mets vs Nationals at 7 PM ET.

As a reminder, the first twelve weeks of Friday Night Baseball are streaming for free in the Apple TV app — no subscription required. After that, an active subscription to Apple TV+ ($4.99/mo) will be required to watch the games. You can watch on any device that can get the Apple TV app, including Amazon Fire, Roku, games consoles, smart TVs and — of course — Apple devices. You can also watch in a web browser at tv.apple.com.

Friday Night Baseball has been surfaced as a new row in the Originals tab of the Apple TV app. It shows a lineup of upcoming games and you can press See All to view the entire upcoming schedule. Individual games can be added to your Up Next queue to get a reminder when the show starts.

The Friday Night Baseball live games are not subject to local blackout restrictions, and are available to Apple TV+ users in the following countries: the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Korea and the UK.

The Apple TV+ MLB experience in the United States also includes a 24/7 livestream ‘All MLB, All Day’, the ‘MLB Big Inning’ show, and other archive content, all streaming in the TV app as part of an Apple TV+ subscription.
