However, if you are a fan of professional baseball then you are in luck because the league and Apple agreed to a deal in March that lets Apple TV broadcast exclusive games under its “Friday Night Baseball” banner. The series features a double-header of MLB action at the end of each week during the regular season for subscribers of their streaming service.
