MLB Drops Silverlight for Flash

Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT)’s Silverlight platform has lost one of its marquee customers, with the announcement today that Major League Baseball will use Adobe Systems Inc. ‘s Flash streaming for the next two years of MLB.tv.

Under the deal that is being announced at the Adobe MAX conference today, the league has agreed to use Adobe Flash for live and on-demand streaming of all Major League Baseball for the next two years — beginning with Opening Day 2009.

In addition to using the Flash Media Player to deliver streams in customer Web browsers, the MLB has also decided to develop a desktop application based on Adobe Air, the company’s rich Internet application platform.
