CBS' Jeff Glor Reports On Continued Growth Of MLBAM

CBS' Jeff Glor today reported on MLBAM and said the entity “manages almost every digital aspect of the game.” Glor said MLBAM “realized that displaced fans across the country would pay to watch their favorite team play,” so they built servers to “host and stream every regional broadcast of every game online.” MLBAM now has many clients that “have nothing to do with baseball,” and its servers are “so powerful that they also stream March Madness basketball, ESPN content, Southwest Airlines in-flight TV, even Glenn Beck’s internet channel.” Glor noted the entity streams “20,000 live events,” which is “more streaming video than any company on Earth” (“CBS This Morning,” 7/16).
