ZillionTV service adds MLB Struggling Internet TV startup company ZillionTV has announced the addition of Major League Baseball to their content providers list, giving access to MLB.com through the oft-delayed VOD service.
Programming will be ad-supported and will give access to archived games, both classic and more recent.

Originally set to launch in the Q2 2009, Zillion has been pushed back until the Q3 2010, despite full backing by the major Hollywood studios Sony, Fox, Universal, Paramount, Warner and Lionsgate.

Zillion will also offer movies, TV and other merchandise for rental or sell-through through the service.

“We’re one of the first on-demand services to bring major league sports content to our viewers right from the start,” added Mitch Berman, executive chairman of ZillionTV, via VB. “The addition of MLB.com to our content portfolio means that we’re helping expand the reach of major professional sports within the growing digital space and attracting a new generation of fans who are eager to watch sports programming on their schedule and their terms.”
