Major League Baseball

The world’s biggest baseball competition, Major League Baseball is contested by 30 teams from the US and Canada. Each season, the 10 best teams advance to a four-round tournament to determine the two participants in the World Series – the legendary best-of-seven championship series that dates back to 1903.

From 12 July, NENT Group will bring MLB action to viewers in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, starting with the reigning World Series champions Houston Astros’ showdown with nine-time winners Oakland Athletics.

NENT Group will also show the 89th annual MLB All-Star Game from Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. on 17 July.

MLB is the latest addition to NENT’s Group’s extensive portfolio of the very best American sport, which also includes NHL ice hockey, NFL American football and NASCAR racing.

NENT Group brings millions of fans closer to the sports they love – every shot, every goal, every touchdown, every putt, every punch, every lap, every time. NENT Group shows more than 50,000 hours of the world’s best live sporting action every year on its TV channels and streaming services, including KHL ice hockey, UEFA Champions League, Premier League, Formula 1, boxing, UFC and golf.
