Major League Baseball will more than double its US TV revenue under new eight-year agreements which will start in 2014 and, with an earlier deal, produce a combined $US12.4 billion.

One of the major broadcasters Fox retains World Series and All-Star game telecast rights, and it will boost its Saturday season telecasts from 26 to 52 games.
