The postseason doesn’t officially start until Weds, but starting with today’s AL Central tiebreaker game between the Tigers and Twins (5:07 PM ET, TBS), and continuing through the 2009 MLB postseason, fans can play “director” and decide from several camera selections with the new Postseason.TV offering from MLB.com

The subscription product is being done by MLB.com, in partnership with MLB Postseason national television rightsholders, Turner Sports and FOX Sports, and will be accessible from MLB.com, FoxSports.com on MSN and MLB.com/TBSHotCorner.

Those that subscribe will have the ability to customize their online viewing experience by offering up to 10 different stationary camera angles from tomorrow’s regular season tiebreaker, as well as every MLB Postseason game, blackout free. Postseason.TV delivers a complementary way for viewers to engage with the Division Series and National League Championship Series broadcasts on TBS and the American League Championship Series and World Series on FOX, while, for the first time, offering a complete package of live Postseason games for a one-time fee of $9.95.

Subscribers to PostSeason.TV can choose to watch one of the available camera angles or up to any four different angles simultaneously in the multi-view option. In addition, TBS HotCorner and FOX Feeds will provide access to in-game video highlights, real-time statistics and play-by-play and social media integration through a live Twitter feed.

Adding to the mix, fans will also have the opportunity to make Postseason.TV portable as MLB.com At Bat 2009 for iPhone and iPod touch, will provide mobile access to the same live camera angles as well as the quad mode option.

Tweet From the Peaks and Valleys of Postseason Play

Adding to the social networking environment for the MLB postseason, MLB.com launched a special Twitter integration the Gameday Wrap (see an example from Sunday. Select the “Wrap” tab) this past weekend. You can take a look back at any half-inning, see every related Tweet from that half-inning, watch video highlights and recap every run-scoring play making an interesting look at the pulse of fans for every game as you see the peaks and valleys of Tweets for each game. The new Twitter integration will continue for the postseason in a post-game format, with MLB.com hoping to launch in real-time in 2010.
