Find info on watching and streaming MLB preseason games. Although most of the games are only accessed online, many options are provided to get the most out of preseason watching. Whether you're watching via cable, online streaming, or through your local TV channels, this guide has you covered.
Watch MLB Preseason
If you have a cable subscription, ESPN broadcasts a handful of big market preseason games, although a majority games will only be on MLB.TV (more on that below). Cable and satellite options for ESPN include:
- Cable Providers: Xfinity, U-Verse or Spectrum
- Satellite TV Providers: DirecTV or Dish
If you don't have cable -- online alternatives exist to live stream ESPN, that don't require the need to buy in to a whole home cable package:
- SlingTV is perhaps the best option simply because it's the least expensive and you can try it out for free for 7 days.
- YoutubeTV is similar to Sling, you can get online cable and all ESPN sports channels through YouTube. It's a bit more expensive, but you do get many more channels for the money. And you get a free trial.
- HuluTV is another solid option that includes a free trial period.
- AT&T TV Now (previously DirecTV Now) mirror the lineup you would expect from an in-home cable provider.
