The 2017 Cord Cutting Guide to Major League Baseball


The 2017 Major League Baseball season is getting started as training camps kick off this week with pitchers arriving. The good news is for the first time cord cutters have unprecedented access to MLB games.

So here is our cord cutting guide to MLB:

MLB Network

Currently only DIRECTV NOW offers the MLB Network.

Regional Sports Network

If you want access to your local sports networks such as Fox Sports or Comcast SportsNet (CSN) and others we have good news for you. Fubo TV, Sling TVPlayStation Vue, and DIRECTV NOW all offer local sports channels—just not all of them. Sadly you will have to do a bit of research to see what local sports network each has in your area. They all seem to have Fox Sports and the rest have a smattering of different regional sports networks. Make sure to visit their sites to find out what they have where you live.

MLB.tv

If you live out of market for your favorite teams (don’t live close to them) you should check out MLB.TV.

MLB.TV will stream to you every out-of-market game. You can pick to follow just one team or sign up for full access depending on what you are willing to pay. MLB.TV is available on iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromcast.

Although it may take research to find the right option for where you live it has never been easier to watch MLB.

    I don’t know if this counts but I listen to NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB games through the SiriusXM app on my Roku. For 20/month I can get tons of sports anywhere with that subscription. A bargain compared to purchasing each league’s packages separately.
