PlayStation Vue adds MLB Network in time for World Baseball Classic

The sports channel is now included in Vue's Core subscription tier, starting at $35 per month.

Itching to catch the World Baseball Classic semifinal between USA and Japan tonight?

PlayStation Vue could be the ticket. Sony's live streaming TV service has added the MLB Network, exclusive carrier of the WBC, to its stable of channels starting today.

To get it you'll need to subscribe to the Core package, which starts at $35 per month in most US cities aside from New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco and Miami, where it costs $45 per month.

That's cheaper than rival DirecTV Now's cheapest package with the MLB Network, which starts at $50 per month. The third major live TV streaming service, Sling TV, doesn't offer the channel.

After the Classic ends, MLB Network will continue to air several live games during each week of the upcoming baseball season. Of course, most games will be carried by your local regional sports network, which may not be available on a service like Vue. In the New York area for example, Yankees fans can watch every game on Vue, but Mets fans are left out. Not that we're bitter.
