Can anyone explain the delay policy on Major League Baseball. I’m not asking about anything related to local blackouts but the following.
If I start watching a game anytime while the game is actually live I can jump back to any inning and watch any part of the game I wish, and I can return to live action. If I access the game at any time before it ends, I can “rewind” to the beginning and watch the entire game if I wish.
However, if I wait until after the game ends, I can’t see any of the game until about 45 minutes after the game has ended. Again this is not a blackout situation. The game is not local.
I can’t understand why such a policy would be in place so I’m wondering if it isn’t a policy but is some limitation in the feeds, editing, etc. Any ideas?
