Feeds from TBS HotCorner and Fox will also supply video highlights, with real time play-by-play, stats and Twitter updates incorporated into the product. There are no media blackouts in DMAs of the participating clubs.
The complete subcription package of live postseason action -- the four Division Series, two League Championship Series and the World Series -- is a available for a one-time fee of $9.95 and is accessible through MLB.com, FoxSports.com on MSN and MLB.com/TBSHotCorner.
