The Mexican Baseball League (LMB) has announced this week the launch of its new streaming platform, which it called ‘Jonron TV’. The OTT is launched together with the beginning of the competition’s 2021 season, and will bring together all the MLB games -which will be broadcast live-, as well as interviews, documentaries, and other content related to the baseball league. The platform was developed by Stream Viral, a company focused on streaming solutions.

‘The way of consuming content has changed. The digital era has become highly relevant for all generations of fans to enjoy their favorite sport from any device. Launching an OTT was necessary for our digital transformation, and it will catapult us and position us into the most demanding fans in Mexico and in the world. Doing it with a partner like Stream Viral, with specialized experience in this area, will benefit our fan base’, expressed Horacio de la Vega Flores, CEO at the LMB.
