For the first time in 2022, some MLB games on Friday nights are being broadcast on Apple TV+ and today, the Atlanta Braves and Colorado Rockies will be featured on Friday Night Baseball as their west coast game. This will be the second time that the reigning World Series champion Braves are featured on Apple TV+ but the first time that the Colorado Rockies will be featured.
As a result, neither Bally Sports South nor AT&T Sports Net Rocky Mountain will broadcast the game for their respective clubs and the game will not be available to watch live on MLB.TV.
So here is how to watch Friday’s game and all games on Apple TV+.
Here’s how to watch the Atlanta Braves and Colorado Rockies on Apple TV+
To watch the Atlanta Braves and Colorado Rockies on Apple TV+, there are few different ways it can be done.
First and foremost, you do not need to pay for an Apple TV subscription to watch the Braves and the Rockies tonight or for any of the Friday Night Baseball games, as of this publication. However, you will have to have an Apple ID.
If you do not have an Apple ID already, you may be prompted to enter credit card information when creating the ID. However, your card will not be charged to watch “Friday Night Baseball.”
With your Smart TV, computer, gaming console, or phone, you can simply just download the Apple TV app. On the home screen of the app, the game should be right there for you to select and you are all set.
If you go to the MLB.TV app while the game is being played live, you can select it from there and (where available) it will direct you to where you need to go.
If you have Android or a non-Apple product (like for your phone), you can watch it in your browser by going to tv.apple.com and then proceed with the steps above.
The Apple TV+ games have been known for their analytical slant with their graphics and their tremendous camera quality. However, the broadcasters have not received many rave reviews. Here is a review of the west coast broadcast crew from our colleague Jake Oliver of our sister site Venom Strikes from when the Arizona Diamondbacks were featured on Apple TV+ last month.
