MLB Preseason Schedule, TV & Live Streams. This link provides you with current and upcoming games, and a spoiler free experience. That way you won't have to worry about getting the score before you get to watch the game in the first place. Great for all events, not just for MLB.
ESPN. If you have a cable subscription, ESPN will be broadcasting a handful of big market preseason games. Although, most games will only be on MLB.TV. Cable and satellite options for ESPN include:
If you don't have cable -- Luckily several online alternatives now exist to live stream ESPN, that don't require the need to buy in to a whole home cable package:
- SlingTV. This is perhaps the best option simply because it's the least expensive. TV packages start as low as $20/month, and you can try it out for free for 7 days.
- YoutubeTV. Similar to Sling, you can get online cable and all ESPN sports channels through Youtube. $35/month is more expensive, but you do get many more channels for the money. And you get a month free trial.
- Playstation Vue. If you have a PS4, consider this option as well. It's slightly more expensive than the above 2, but certainly could be worth it for the convenience of an app being built into a system you already use. Starting at $39.99/month with a 5-day free trial, Playstation offers it's own version of a cable package, which includes ESPN.
- HuluTV. Another solid option. 1-week free trial and $39.99/month thereafter, which includes ESPN.
