• Watch the 112th World Series on FOX
Just ask Anthony Rizzo, who caught the last out that clinched the Cubs' first World Series trip since 1945. He will be starring on the same MLB.TV service that he told you about.
"Ever seen my commercial? I am MLB.TV," Rizzo said earlier this season. "I like to watch it in the shower, when I'm sleeping. It's great. My parents use it. I know a lot of people who do use it just because it's so easy to access all the information. I really do use it in the shower. It's great."
Signups are also available for the MLB.TV International Package, which lets fans outside of the U.S. see live streams of every remaining game with no blackout restrictions, on the web and more than 400 supported mobile and connected devices. Those subscribers can see in-game highlights and stats, use live-game DVR controls, get Spanish audio sync, access a pitch-by-pitch widget and watch on the web-based HD media player.
The Cubs are playing in their first World Series since 1945 and attempting to win their first title since 1908. The Indians are playing in their first World Series since '97 and going after their first championship since '48. MLB.TV is especially suited to this Fall Classic, because fans of these teams are everywhere, waiting forever for this moment.
John Smoltz, who waged that classic World Series pitching duel with Minnesota's Jack Morris a quarter-century ago and is calling his first World Series as a member of the FOX broadcast team, said MLB.TV has "redefined the way to follow a game." He uses MLB.TV to help prepare for his role, because a subscription includes full access to 2016 game archives.
"I couldn't do this at all if I wasn't able to watch video," Smoltz said. "I watch the [MLB.com At Bat] app to get ready for my games, just because it's the only way I can catch up. The numbers are numbers. I can look up every number in the world. I can look up statistics that can tell the story. But when I get to see video, when I get to see actual footage, that's a difference-maker for me.
