The Best Way to Watch Live MLB Baseball Games Without Cable in 2020

Best Way to Watch Every MLB Team without Cable

We picked the best live TV streaming services for each MLB team so you won’t miss a single play. Don’t subscribe to one until you check your favorite team’s schedule.

Local Market Broadcasts

Most Major League Baseball telecasts are on your Regional Sports Network (RSN).

More than 80% of your teams games will air on these channels. If you follow a team in your hometown, you will have to receive your RSN to be able to catch most of your team’s games.

To watch your RSN online without cable, you will need a subscription to one of the major Live TV Streaming Services.

Once you subscribe, you will be able to stream your local MLB games on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon, Fire TV, Chromecast, iOS, and Android.

The newly launched Marquee Sports Network, which will air nearly every Chicago Cubs game — is only available to stream on Hulu Live TV ($55) and AT&T TV NOW ($80). fuboTV is one of the few services that offers NESN and the only one to stream Houston Astros games on AT&T SportsNet Southwest.

You can stream 23 of 30 MLB teams locally on Live TV Streaming Services.

You won’t be able to stream the Baltimore Orioles (MASN), Colorado Rockies (AT&T Sports Rocky Mountain), Los Angeles Dodgers (Spectrum SportsNet LA), Pittsburgh Pirates (AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh), Seattle Mariners (ROOT Sports Northwest), and Washington Nationals (MASN) regular season games in your local market.

In Canada, we suggest checking out Sportsnet NOW for all 162 Toronto Blue Jays games this season. Previously, you could stream using MLB.TV, but Blue Jays games are now blacked out across Canada using the service.

Overflow Channels

Some games that appear on overflow channels may require you to watch on Fox Sports Go or NBCSports App.

Nationally Televised Broadcasts

Nationally televised games that don’t air on your team’s RSN may air on ESPN, FOX, FS1, TBS, and Facebook.

Most of these games will air exclusively on these channels and won’t be available on your local RSN. You’ll also need these channels to get MLB Playoff games and the World Series.

Additionally, MLB Network broadcasts ~100 non-exclusive games throughout the season. These games will only show outside the local markets of the teams.
