fuboTV, YouTube TV, & Fox App to Stream ALDS, ALCS, and World Series in 4K
If you want to stream the much of the MLB Postseason in 4K, you’re in luck, Fox Sports will stream the 2021 American League Division Series in 4K HDR to fans using the Fox Sports and Fox Now apps. One game in each of the Boston Red Sox/Tampa Bay Rays and Houston Astros/Chicago White Sox series will be broadcast on MLB Network, which won’t carry the game in 4K.
Similar to other sports on Fox, fuboTV, which is available with a 7-Day Free Trial, will also carry the games in 4K directly from their service, but now the ALDS, ALCS, and World Series will also be available in the Fox Sports and Fox Now apps.
That means that if you are a subscriber of Sling TV, Hulu Live TV, and YouTube TV — you can watch the games live in 4K using your TV Everywhere credentials. Those with the YouTube TV “4K Plus” Add-On, can also stream the games from their interface, but if you want to save, you can stream it from the Fox Sports App in 4K at no extra charge.
