|Major League Baseball is coming to the UK, thanks to bookmakers William Hill and Sky television. William Hill has announced their plan to bring the game to their TV network, which is going to be aired on Sky Channel 425 and will offer the chance to make bets on the games.|
“This is a huge leap forward for Major League Baseball betting in the UK. As well as the fast developing domestic fan base, there are literally tens of thousands of ex-pat Americans in Britain who we know will tune into the live MLB game every week. William Hill are not only offering the widest range of gambling opportunities available on the games, we are ensuring the Wednesday game on Channel 425 is absolutely live and not with the delay found on some other channels,' said William Hill’s spokesman Phil Quayle.
The new service will offer a range of unique betting options including RBI scorer, strikeout totals and William Hill’s registered members can bet ‘in running’ on a number of markets. The new channels and betting service will be available on all live games shown on Channel 425.
