MLB has partnerships with ESPN, FOX, Apple TV+ and Peacock for U.S. national broadcasts for MLB games, which means they are able to select Red Sox games throughout the season to air on their platforms. Similarly, ESPN and Turner Sports (TNT) for U.S. national broadcast rights for NHL games, which means they are able to select Bruins games throughout the season to air on their networks.
