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.
You can stream all 30 MLB teams locally on Live TV Streaming Services.
- fuboTV is one of the few services that offers Boston Red Sox on NESN, Pittsburgh Pirates on AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh, and Houston Astros on AT&T SportsNet Southwest.
- DIRECTV STREAM ($84.99) is the only service that offers Bally Sports RSNs (formerly Fox Sports RSNs), YES Network (Yankees), Marquee Sports Network (Cubs) Spectrum SportsNet LA (Dodgers), MASN (Orioles & Nationals), AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain (Rockies), and ROOT Sports Northwest (Mariners).
