The Biggest Media Company You’ve Never Heard Of- Max Molinari

When you think of big media companies, usually the first things that come to mind are companies like; Google, Netflix, and the list goes on.  What if there was a company out there that is just as big if not bigger than these companies?  This company has mobile technology that makes them one of Apple’s key partners and has been used as key notes for their product launches.  This company is MLB Advanced Media, the digital tech company of the MLB.  While major sports leagues are just joining the streaming media band wagon, MLBAM has been in the streaming game since 2002.  When they first released MLB.TV in 2002 the first game pulled in 30,000 viewers.  Then in 2009 with the help of MLB.com, they released a new app called “At Bat” for the iPhone and streaming took off from there.  By the end of the 2014 season MLB.TV is on over 400 devices, will pass 2 billion live games streamed in 720p Live HD.  The MLB is looking way past TV now and is focusing on the streaming game and is making big strides in the digital media world.
