PlayStation 3 Plugs Into

Sony announced today that subscribers can stream any 2010 regular-season baseball game (except for your local team's games, thanks to MLB's television contracts) to their TV through their PS3s, in HD. Much like the MLB At-Bat app for Android and iPhone OS works, PS3 owners can download an app through PlayStation Network that allows them to log into their account and stream the video feed from the home or away team's feed.

The PS3 app is slightly more robust in the video department than the mobile version. Where the iPhone/iPad/Android lets you access in-game statistical readouts and boxscores, you can watch any game from earlier in the season, flip instantly to any specific half-inning, and set the app to not show scores if you want to avoid spoilers for a game that you missed. You can also set your favorite teams, though as previously mentioned it won't do you any good if you live in the media market your squad plays in. Reiner is free to watch the Cubs lose whenever he likes, but I'm stuck listening to the audio feed for keeping up with the Twins' latest victories.

The app is already live, so go download it for free (and then pay $100-120 for an subscription, natch) already.
