Joost Gets Baseball (But Not In The U.S.)

Joost has announced an exclusive partnership with Major League Baseball (MLB) to make on-demand game broadcasts and highlights from the 2007 MLB postseason available on the P2P service. But you’ll only be able to catch all of it if you live outside the U.S.

That’s great for the rest of the world, but if you live stateside you can only watch Daily Rewind, a program that features baseball highlights on and off the field.

I’m not going to blame Joost on this one. Pro sports leagues are nefarious for protecting their broadcasts, which is too bad, because this would have been an excellent way to get more people into the idea of online TV. I guess we’d call this a foul ball.
