Dodgers fans struggling to legally watch their favorite baseball team has been all too common over the years.

Apple reportedly paid roughly $85M for the rights to exclusively stream select games on their platform. 

Early feedback from viewers is that the Apple TV games appear to have a clearer picture and feature an appealing, clean look.

To watch today's game, Dodgers fans will not have pay a dollar. The games are free until June 24th. After that, a subscription will likely be required. Apple didn't pay $85M to give games away for free. Reportedly. 

The paywall is coming, but for now, fans around the country will get to enjoy the Dodgers Jackie Robinson Day game.
