T-Mobile Pitches Free MLB Content to Customers
T-Mobile today said baseball fans will be able to watch every regular season Major League Baseball game on their smartphones for free.

T-Mobile says games will be streamed in standard definition by default, but can be viewed in HD if customers wish. The free year-long subscription will available for just 24 hours on April 4. T-Mobile customers will need to redeem the free subscription via the T-Mobile Tuesdays application and then sign up for MLB.TV Premium no later than April 11.
