  • BayStars games online

    Posted by simon c on 2009 April 22日 Wednesday

    In addition to Yahoo! Japan broadcasting all Pacific League games online, all Yokohama BayStars home games at Yokohama Stadium have also become available online starting this season. The PL games are IP restricted, so you need to work around that if you live outside of Japan (myp2p.eu is one option), I’m not sure about the BayStars home games.

    EDIT: The BayStars online service seems to only provide video by half-inning (which is a pain) and appears to be tape delayed by 20 minutes at least. Then again, if you avoid Japanese sports news, then this might as well be live on gameday.

    1. Both are DRM-crippled and tied to both Microsoft’s player and dangerous browser. Until the NPB can enter the 21st Century and embrace Open Standards, their attempts at media streaming shall continue to be failures.

      Hiroshima paid some Texas firm a bundle of money to create a similar MS-DRM-crippled system last season as well.

      Justin.TV often has a game going on (while live). It works with Flash on multiple platforms with no browser or location restrictions.

      I’m setting this up for the moment: http://www.npbtracker.com/games-on-justintv/ I want to work out a more community-based approach over time.
