How to watch MLB baseball without cable for the regular season 2019

Spring is here, the days are sunnier and 2019 Major League Baseball season is underway.

From the Yankees and Red Sox to Dodgers and Cubs, big league teams play pretty much every day for six months. The Baseball's regular season is a marathon of 162 games, with its own unique rhythms when the weather warms up, gains and losses accumulate and challenge rising and falling in the stands.

Previously, you needed a cable or satellite subscription (or season ticket) to capture your favorite team day and day out. This year, however, baseball fans that are cable grids can also stream the action live or record them to their cloud DVRs, in the spring, summer and fall.

So where do you start? It depends on which team you follow and where you live.

Live TV streaming service vs. MLB.TV

There are two important ways to stream MLB games without cable or satellite TV subscription:

  • Subscribe to a live TV streaming service such as Sling TV Blue, Fubo TV or YouTube TV ($ 25 per month)
  • Subscribe to MLB.TV ($ 25 per month or $ 119 per year)

Depending on where you live, one of the great live TV streaming services carry the channel that has your favorite team. These channels, known as regional sports networks, deliver almost all regular seasonal games live.

The disadvantages? Not every such service carries any RSN, and some teams are not available on any live TV service. There is also the price: Only Sling TV Blue costs $ 25, while the rest is $ 40 and up.

The second option is MLB.TV, a separate service that carries every game played by each team living. It's good for hardcore fans in general.

The big catch with MLB.TV is the local blackout restriction: You can't watch your local team's game live. Instead, they will be available about 90 minutes after the game ends. For example, if you're a Yankees fan in the New York area, you can't start looking at the Yankees game up to one and a half and after the last one. Other teams games are not black out, making MLB.TV ideal for fans who want to follow one or more of the 28 or 29 teams based in other cities, even if they are out in the market.

Live TV streaming: Best for home team fans

Due to MLB.TV's blackout restriction, a live TV streaming service is the best way to follow your local team.

Many services carry RSN which has exclusive rights to each regular seasonal game. And most carry major national networks – ESPN, Fox, FS1, MLB Network and TBS – who regularly match TV from different teams around the league.

Here's how RSNs look at each service.

Some Important Takeaways:

  • None of the services carry the RSN for the Baltimore Orioles, the Colorado Rockies, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Seattle Mariners, the Toronto Blue Jays and the Washington Nationals. To look at these teams, you need cable, satellite, MLB.TV or other solution.
  • The above RSNs are usually only available to local subscribers. See the individual service details below to find out that you live in a place where you can get a certain RSN.
  • Sling TVs RSNs are only available to customers with Sling Blue. Sling Orange customers receive no RSNs. See below for the details of national networks carried by each.
  • The only service with the Houston Astros game is Fubo TV. Unfortunately, it lacks ESPN.
  • YouTube TV is the only service that carries the MLB Network in its basic package. The others either take out more or do not carry it at all.

<h2>  MLB.TV subscription: Best for out-of-market games </h2>
<p>  Major League Baseball's official streaming service is great for following your favorite team if you live outside their TV market. But because of the 90-minute blackout described above, it is less useful for following the home team. </p>
<p>  Here's MLB.TV's 2019 pricing: </p>
<ul>
<li>  Pay $ 119 a year to watch all out-of-the-game live or on-demand games, and in-market (home) with a 90-minute delay from the end of the game. If you think your team might not be worth watching, the trading deadline came, you could pay $ 25 a month, allowing you to cancel if your team falls out of the pennant race.  </li>
<li>  Pay $ 92 per year to watch a single, out-of-market team. If you are interested in just watching your favorite team game (and not living on their TV market), this plan can save you some money. However, you sacrifice the opportunity to switch to a potential no-hitter going elsewhere or any other exciting match or moment that does not involve your team.  </li>
</ul>
<p>  Both MLB.TV plans also include home streams and radio broadcasts. The radio broadcasts are not subject to the blackout rule, so you can listen to home games live. </p>

MLB's At Bat app is a great way to watch games on your phone or tablet – or get alerts on your watch.

MLB At Bat Add-on

MLB That Bat app is great on phones and even better on tablets. If you purchased an MLB.TV subscription (as described above) you can log in to your account and watch games live on the app. There is a cheaper subscription option that can only be used with the mobile app, but it is limited to what you can look at.

You can purchase an At Bat subscription via the MLB At Bat app. It costs $ 20 a year (or $ 3 per month) and lets you listen to home or line radio broadcasts – baseball is the only sport I can listen to on the radio – and watch a game per day during the season. You cannot choose which game you want to watch. you are stuck with MLB.TV Free games of the day.
