"This alliance brings us one step closer to providing fans a live professional sporting event every day, on Yahoo, completely frictionless and for free - no cable subscription or authentication required," says VP of Media Partnerships at Yahoo Phil Lynch.

Yahoo will also provide highlights and condensed games.

Naturally, you can expect video advertising during commercial breaks.
