Apple has had “substantial” discussions about serving as a broadcast outlet for MLB games next season, according to the New York Post.

Digital carriers recently have emerged as a serious contender in the sports broadcasting marketplace; Amazon will become the exclusive home of the NFL’s “Thursday Night Football” next season as part of a deal worth more than a billion dollars.

According to the Post, a possible deal between MLB and Apple wouldn’t be in that neighborhood, but a working relationship would represent another change in the marketplace, one that could lead to bigger things down the road.
