Other options for watching MLB games
Like the NFL, you can find a lot of live MLB coverage across several different platforms—which we highlight in our How to Watch MLB Games guide.
MLB’s expansive broadcast plan is a double-edged sword for baseball fans. With many viewing options, it’s easy to catch live games with even the most basic TV setup. But you’ll need several different TV subscriptions to access every regular season MLB game.
We recommend DIRECTV for the most MLB access because it offers every national MLB channel and a wide selection of regional sports networks (RSNs)—those are essential for watching locally televised games. You can even add MLB EXTRA INNINGS® to your plan for full out-of-market access.
If you’re a cord-cutter, MLB.TV will get you the same out-of-market games as MLB EXTRA INNINGS. Otherwise, you can also check out Apple TV+ for watching its exclusive Friday Night Baseball doubleheaders.
