Adobe has landed a two-year agreement with MLB.com to stream its 2,500-plus spring training, regular season and post-season games live to MLB.com’s 1.5 million subscribers. Games were previously streamed on Microsoft Silverlight, an arrangement announced in August of 2007. In the rich media platform game, Adobe has a home run here. Details were released a short time ago in a presentation by Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch in San Francisco at MAX, the big Adobe developers conference.
In September on the MIT campus, I interviewed Kevin about the evolution of AIR. (Note this is a different Kevin Lynch interview than the one which I posted earlier today on other Adobe news.)
Update: Here’s the press release from Adobe.
