MLB To Show Live Replay Reviews on MLB Network, Apple TV+


Recommended Posts



Starting with the 2023 season, the technology will be integrated into baseball broadcasts on MLB Network and Apple TV+, allowing viewers to watch umpires connecting with the MLB replay operations center in Manhattan in an effort to provide transparency to fans in critical game moments.

"With instant replay, so many people have asked us 'what is actually going on?'" said MLB chief revenue officer Noah Garden. "We hope that we can provide a glimpse to give a view of the communications on the field and between the umpires and the replay room."

Viewers will be able to watch the replay room go through different angles of any plays in question and be able to see who is communicating with umpires. Additionally, a rules analyst will discuss the reviews with the broadcast teams on MLB Network and Apple TV+.


This is a fantastic idea.  It's quite annoying sitting there having no idea what the umpires/reviewers are seeing.  We see it one way on our replays, and then the call comes out completely different.  This is limited to MLB Network and Apple TV+ right now, but they want to expand it, and they definitely should.


We'll see if they're able to show this IN the parks too - it's even worse in person where it's just silence while they review it, and maybe show one angle a couple times on the video board.

(After eight minute review) "Yeah I can't tell for sure. Call stands."

Haha.  That may be the case, but I'd rather see that and see the thought process than be like "WTF are they doing up there? Oh here's the announcement with no explanation"
