San Francisco Giants play in the most beautiful park in all baseball. I would pay good money to watch a Planet Earth-style documentary of an empty Oracle Park (formerly Pac Bell Park, SBC Park and AT&T Park). The camera slowly bounces over the outdoor field and rises so I can catch a glimpse of McCovey Cove behind the high brick wall in the right field.
The team itself is in the midst of a remodeling, but is expected to stop at the bottom of the National League West this year. But it still has stars like Buster Posey behind the plate and Madison Bumgarner tips rubber every five days.
Giant fans who also happen to be cable television cutter have a number of ways to look at the giants if you are in the Bay Area or an out-of-market follower of the club.

Outside the Market Giants streaming
If you're a giant fan living outside the Bay Area, you can't look at the giants at the NBC Sport Bay Area. However, you can stream their games live with an MLB.TV subscription.
You have two options:
- Pay $ 119 per year (or $ 25 per month) to see all out-of-market games live or on demand, and the domestic (home) team with a 90 -minute delay from the end of the game.
- Pay $ 92 a year to watch a single out-of-market team. In this case, the giants and no one else.
Both MLB.TV plans also contain streams of home and radio stations. The radio broadcasts are not subject to the blackout rules, so you can listen to home games live.
