The 2019 Major League Baseball season is almost here and Spring Training has now underway. The good news is for the first time cord cutters have unprecedented access to MLB games. So here is our cord cutting guide to watching MLB games on Roku, Fire TV, and the Apple TV.
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. Hulu, fuboTV, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, 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.
They all offer a free trial so make sure to test them out first.
(Note: Currently fuboTV is the only service with AT&T SportsNet but currently only offers the AT&T SportsNet Southwest. Hopefully, more will be added soon.)
If you live out of the 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.
