Will let drivers listen to dedicated game broadcasts
The MLB's core iOS app, At Bat, has been added to the list of titles compatible with Apple's CarPlay platform. While most of At Bat's functions require a person's attention, via CarPlay users will be able to tune into radio stations broadcasting MLB games in distant cities. Using this will require At Bat's standard subscription, which costs $20 per season or $3 per month.
Only a handful of apps have been announced as CarPlay-ready so far; beyond Apple's own the list includes Beats Music, iHeartRadio, Spotify, and Stitcher. CarPlay itself is coming to just a few car models in 2014, plus aftermarket add-ons from Alpine and Pioneer. The number of compatible apps is likely to surge once more vehicles are ready in 2015.
