One, two, three strikes and you’ll probably feel about ready to give up on your search for an MLB livestream.
You can still cheer on the Mets and Yankees — or another Major League Baseball team (but why would you, really?) — even if you don’t have a TV. But, if you’re looking to stream legally without a cable or network subscription, it’ll cost you to keep up with the games.
Tune into these livestreams on your phone, tablet or computer and you won’t have to worry about missing any of the bases loaded, no outs action this season.
MLB.com At Bat app
The At Bat app is your easiest — and most affordable — option. You can listen to home and away radio broadcasts live, watch condensed games and relive legendary moments in the classic games archive. Subscriptions start at $2.99 monthly or $19.99 annually, but if you’re a new member, you’ll get off the hook with one month free. Sign up at m.mlb.com/apps/atbat.
If you want to watch games live, purchase the At Bat app's premium package, which gives you access to MLB.TV. In-app availability includes being able to watch regularly scheduled MLB Network programming (including games) on your phone, tablet or computer. The only catch: The premium package is much more costly. It'll run you upward of $112.99 per year. Super loyal fans do have the option to choose one team to follow, though, for a discounted price. Pick your favorite, say, the Yanks, and watch the team win all season long for $59.99. To stream, visit newyork.yankees.mlb.com.
MLB Extra Innings
Another option for the serious fan: An MLB Extra Innings package. Available through DirecTV (although you don’t have to be a current DirecTV customer to subscribe), subscribers will be able to stream to nearly 100 out-of-market games per week. Packages cost $28.79 per-month for a six-month plan. You can access the games on your TV, too, and see up to eight games simultaneously … because sometimes your favorite teams are all going at it at once. Visit direct.com/sports/mlb for more information.
T-Mobile customers were offered a free one-year subscription to MLB.TV for the first time at the start of the 2017 season. With the free premium subscription, fans are able to access home and away games on any device. If you’re a T-Mobile customer, contact your local carrier to see if you have access. The free subscription expires on Feb. 28.
