27 Oct, 2016 By: Erik Gruenwedel

Shout! Factory Oct. 27 announced a new distribution alliance with Major League Baseball for World Series and related packaged-media and digital releases.

The agreement provides Shout! Factory with exclusive 4K UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and digital rights to both the annual World Series and separate "World Series Collector’s Edition" boxed set releases, in addition to catalog films from the MLB library.

Shout! Factory this holiday season will release the 2016 Fall Classic, featuring game footage and interviews with players, coaches and team personnel, and the multi-disc "World Series Collector’s Edition," including full-game broadcasts with multiple audio options, as well as bonus footage of pivotal moments in the championship season.

“We appreciate [Shout! Factory’s] commitment to delivering first class films for our fans’ enjoyment and are eager to re-launch our partnership with this year’s World Series,” Chris Tully, EVP of media for Major League Baseball, said in a statement.

Santa Monica, Calif.-based Shout! Factory previously worked with MLB from 2005 to 2010 for a series of packaged-media releases, including the World Series.

“We look forward to presenting baseball fans the 2016 World Series film and the complete collector’s edition box set,” said Shout! Factory founders Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos.
