The Walt Disney Company’s streaming television service Hulu has added Major League Baseball’s (MLB) cable channel to its live TV product.

MLB Network is now available to subscribers of Hulu with Live TV, which costs $76 per month and includes other networks that offer live baseball programming like Fox, TBS, ESPN and Fox Sports 1.

MLB Network offers more than 100 nationally-televised MLB games per season, and includes ancillary coverage like spring training sessions and pre-season games.

Hulu with Live TV includes access to Disney’s two other streaming services, Disney Plus and ESPN Plus, the latter of which also carries live MLB games on a national basis.
