Sony today announced an exciting prospect for PS3 owners who love the great American sport of Major League Baseball.

Later this afternoon, Sony will unleash a MLB.TV application for the PlayStation Network.

It’s a Sony exclusive and will allow subscribers to watch every out of market baseball game on the comfort of their couch, instead of the computer and has a slew of unique interactive options to enjoy as well.

The features include:

  • MLB Scoreboard — See a schedule of today’s games (and set options to control whether or not you see the scores)
  • Home and Away Feeds — Choose to watch either the home or away broadcast feed
  • HD quality video and DVR functionality — watch a live game in HD (with Live Game DVR functionality that lets you pause and rewind live games of fast-forward back to live game action)
  • Season Archive — Want to re-live a great moment? Go back and watch games you’ve missed from earlier in the season.
  • Scrollable Linescore — Go directly to any half-inning to watch only that portion of the game.
  • Favorite Teams/Calendar Schedule — Scroll through the entire 2010 Major League Baseball schedule in calendar format or designate your favorite team(s) to see the schedule for that team.

If you’re a MLB.TV subscriber, the fun starts now. But if you aren’t, subscriptions rates range from $19.95 to $119.95 for varying degrees of commitment. Check out MLB.TV’s subscription options here.
