The heat is on for the title of best team in the MLB as the San Francisco Giants and Detroit Tigers face off in the 2012 World Series. If you aren't able to follow the game at a sports bar or in real time on the radio, there are three online solutions to keep you updated on every play.
- MLB.tv ($25) — Due to broadcasting licensing rights, it's downright impossible to watch the games online. US and Canada customers that pay $25 for a MLB.tv postseason subscription can listen to live audio of the game or wait 90 minutes after the game's end to watch the full archive. Lucky international subscribers actually get to stream the game live with audio and the option to stream on multiple mobile devices.
- MLB.com's At Bat ($4) — This app is available for nearly every mobile platform, including iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, and even HP's webOS tablet. Though it doesn't include a live video, At Bat does offer real-time pitch-by-pitch updates on the game, video highlights, and text sports news.
- ESPN Radio ($3) — Android, iOS, and BlackBerry users can purchase ESPN's mobile radio app to listen live to commentary and play-by-plays on the series.
