Outbound Cardinal Marketing
If you're a Cardinals fan living outside of the St. Louis market, you can't watch Red Birds on Fox Sports Midwest. 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 the out-of-market game 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 cards are 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.
