It looks like MLS's online streaming package will, once again, return to offer MLS fans the opportunity to buy a season pass and stream all non-blacked out games over their internet. This is, obviously, good news for those who prefer to watch games outside their own teams, or those who are without a team entirely but enjoy a good game of footie every now and then.

There is also some good news to go along with the return of the season pass. First, it's been rebranded as MLS Live which is, in my opinion, a far better name that "Match Day Live" which was easily forgotten. Second, and this one is primarily for those of us who run some version of Linux, MLS is finally giving Microsoft's Silverlight the ol' heave ho out the window. From now on we'll be able to watch MLS matches using Flash, a much more prevalent standard than that of Silverlight.

Interested parties should stay tuned as the service is planning on launching in the next few days for the usual price of $59.99 (quite cheap compared to other league packages).
