Canaries Baseball Coming to a Computer Screen or Tablet Near You
One of the drawbacks of minor league baseball is a severe lack of live television coverage, but for the Sioux Falls Canaries, and the rest of the American Association, all that is about to change.
For the first time, fans can catch all games – home and away – on their computers and tablets, as the American Association and Can-Am League have partnered with InnovaTV to provide live streaming of every game.
Coverage will be available on desktop and laptop computers; a variety of Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch; and Android mobile devices. InnovaTV is also available on ChromeCast, a Google product which allows direct streaming of a personal computer onto a television.
In an American Association press release, commissioner Miles Wolff said:
We are proud to be the only leagues in all of professional baseball in which all games are televised live and free for fans. Over the last few months all 16 clubs have worked diligently to get the equipment ready and technical problems solved so that the games can be aired. The quality of the broadcasts will vary from club to club, but over the next months, working with InnovaTV, we will continue to improve so that our fans can enjoy every American Association and Can-Am contest at home and on the road.
The American Association All-Star Game, featuring four Can-Am League players, is Tuesday, July 29th, in Winnipeg.
