New York Mets fans will be able to watch the team’s broadcast via in-market streaming on SNY’s new app. As covered by The Streamable, the app launched on Thursday (March 24) that will allow fans to stream live SNY and PIX 11 Mets broadcasts on iOS and Android devices, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV.

Previously, Mets broadcasts could be streamed through TV Everywhere on the NBC Sports app (and, of course, MLB.TV for fans outside the New York market). But those games are now exclusive to the SNY app.

However, SNY’s app is an in-market streaming service. (MSG Networks is currently developing a similar direct-to-consumer product for Knicks, Rangers, Devils, and Islanders broadcasts.)

Viewers will still need their cable, satellite, or TV Everywhere credentials to access the app, rather than sign up for a standalone service. But YouTube TV, Hulu Live, fuboTV, and DIRECTV STREAM all carry SNY, so fans will be able to access the app through those platforms.

SNY programming available on the app includes:

  • Live New York Mets broadcasts, including pre- and post-game coverage
  • New York Jets pre- and post-game shows
  • UConn women’s basketball broadcasts, including pre- and post-game coverage
  • Live daily programming including the TV simulcast of WFAN’s Carton & Roberts, Baseball Night in New York, and GEICO SportsNite
  • Breaking news reports and press conferences
  • Game highlights
  • Video archive of SNY original programming, digital series, documentaries, and classic games

“We are excited to improve our fans’ experience with a best-in-class mobile and viewing experience,” said SNY president Steve Raab in the official announcement.

“We understand how important it is for New York sports fans to have the ability to stay connected to their teams. With baseball season starting, fans now have a direct connection to SNY and our award-winning broadcasts, providing them with the accessibility they want, when they want it.”

Sinclair, with its Bally Sports regional networks and Marquee Sports Network, along with NBC Sports regional networks are developing standalone, direct-to-consumer streaming services but have not yet launched them while various details are still to be worked out.

NBC has tabbed Kathryn Tappen as its sideline reporter for the network’s upcoming coverage of Big Ten football, according to a report from Andrew Marchand of The New York Post.

According to Marchand, Tappen was in line to replace Michele Tafoya as the sideline reporter for Sunday Night Football but was passed over by the network in favor of Melissa Stark.

Tappen has hosted Notre Dame football’s studio coverage and Peacock Sunday Night Football Final. She also worked as NBC’s lead interviewer for its coverage of the PGA Tour, but left that broadcast team at the end of 2022 as part of the network’s larger shakeup of its golf coverage.

The appointment of Kathryn Tappen conceivably concludes the Big Ten on NBC broadcast crew. Noah Eagle and Todd Blackledge are expected to pair as the network’s play-by-play announcer and color analyst, respectively. NBC has yet to officially unveil its coverage plans for the 2023 college football season.

Peter King: Sean McVay Wants to be a Star, ‘Not Just Some Guy on TV’

“I do think he had some regret over not taking a two- or three-year hiatus last year and taking one of the big TV jobs. Amazon? Maybe FOX? But if he really wanted to jump after winning the Super Bowl, he would have.”

L.A. Rams head coach Sean McVay will remain at his post for the 2023-24 season. The team tweeted that news Friday afternoon, seeming to, at least for now, put the rumors of McVay leaving coaching for a TV job to rest.

ProFootballTalk’s Peter King wrote in Football Morning in America on Monday that McVay understands the kind of position on television he’s looking for may not necessarily be there for him.

“I don’t think that was the only thing about TV that appealed to him, but I don’t think McVay was interested in being Just a Guy on TV,” King wrote. “I do think he had some regret over not taking a two- or three-year hiatus last year and taking one of the big TV jobs. Amazon? Maybe FOX? But if he really wanted to jump after winning the Super Bowl, he would have.”

King noted that McVay has been told to “Do what makes you happy” by folks with the Rams. He also said he believes coaching is what Makes McVay happy. Especially with a chance to shake up his coaching staff and being involved in trying to bring the team back from a 5-12 season in their follow-up campaign to winning the Super Bowl.

“He wants to be challenged, and this staff wasn’t doing it,” King said. “Offensive coordinator Liam Coen may not have been what McVay wanted in an OC—a coach who would challenge him and bring new ideas to him—and that could be why he’s going back to the University of Kentucky as a coordinator.”

Monday night’s Cowboys/Bucs wild card playoff game set a new milestone for ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters.

The network tweeted that Salters completed her 11th season in that role. That makes her the longest tenured reporter in Monday Night Football history.

Salters has been with ESPN for almost 23 years. She started as a general assignment reporter before moving to sideline reporting in 2006.

“When I first got the call to do Monday Night Football, I would have never thought that 10 years later I would still be doing it,” Salters said last year in a video reminiscing on ten years on Monday Night Football. “I was at home and I got a phone call from my boss Vince Doria and he said, ‘Hey, I was wondering if you would be interested in being a sideline reporter for Monday Night Football‘, and I couldn’t believe what he just asked me.”

Salters is also featured on network coverage of the NBA, something she’s been doing since 2005.
