If you’ve ever subscribed to MLB.tv before, you know the pitfalls that have irritated you in the past.

Wanted to watch a World Series game? Too bad, too sad. What about a regular season, Saturday afternoon game in which Fox held the broadcast rights? Nope – couldn’t watch that either.

There wasn’t anything you could do about it – just an unfortunate asset of MLB.tv’s odd rules. But those concerns are in the past as starting this season, you’ll be able to stream World Series games and Saturday afternoon Fox games.

Per MLB.com:

For the first time since MLB.TV debuted in 2002, its subscribers will have access to live stream every game of the World Series through the No. 1 sports streaming service, available via the MLB.com At Bat app and more than 400 connected devices.

That was one of many developments learned on Thursday as details of the new MLB on FOX national broadcast schedule was announced for the 2014 Major League Baseball season.

MLB.TV subscribers also will have the ability to live stream the All-Star Game and games in the FOX Saturday national broadcast window beginning this season.

That sound you hear is the collective mass of Major League Baseball fans that purchase MLB.tv on an annual basis clapping in unison.
