What You Need to Know for the 2020 MLS Season

How to Watch Out-of-Market Games with MLS LIVE on ESPN+

Starting last season, ESPN+ ($4.99) included MLS LIVE as part of their OTT subscription. This means you will be able to stream every out-of-market game, and fans of the Chicago Fire can even watch telecasts of their local team.

The service also includes an original show following LAFC, as well as live international soccer including Serie A, FA Cup, UEFA Nations League, EFL Championship, EFL Carabao Cup, Eredevise and more. The service also includes a daily MLB/NHL game, as well as UFC, Boxing, and College Sports.

Considering that MLS LIVE used to cost $80 per season on its own, at $4.99 a month ($50 a year), this is an incredible option for MLS fans.

MLS Live on ESPN+

You’ll get out-of-market MLS games, plus Chicago Fire games in their local market.

How to Watch Nationally Televised MLS Games

Just like last season, many games will be nationally televised on ESPN, FOX, and FS1. There are six major streaming providers that offer Live TV Streaming.

These allow you to watch nationally televised games live using iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, Chromecast, and Web.

How to Watch Locally Televised MLS Games

Depending on your market, local Major League Soccer (MLS) telecasts will air on a local affiliate, Regional Sports Network (RSN), or an online streaming partner. To watch your RSN online without cable, you will need a subscription to one of the major Live TV Streaming Services.

Most teams will have some of their games nationally televised, with the rest on a local TV partner. Our recommendation for which the best service to watch local telecast depends on the team.

For instance, the New York Red Bulls televise their games on MSG which is available on fuboTV. For teams that air their matches on a Fox Regional Sports Network like Atlanta United FC, Columbus Crew SC,
Minnesota United FC, New York City FC, and Sporting Kansas City — your best bet is Hulu Live TV, after fuboTV, Sling TV and YouTube TV dropped the channels in the past year.

Some MLS clubs have arrangements with streaming partners instead of RSNs to broadcast games not televised nationally. For instance, Orlando City and LAFC have agreements with YouTube TV, Chicago Fire with ESPN+, and FC Cincinnati with FloSports.

For the 2020 season, Philadelphia Union will be streaming their games on the team’s website, while Real Salt Lake will stream locally on KSLSports.com.

Unfortunately, Colorado Rapids (Altitude), Houston Dynamo (KUBE), LA Galaxy (Spectrum SportsNet), and Portland Timbers (ROOT Sports Northwest). If you have an antenna, you can pick up most Houston on your local MyNetworkTV affiliate.

As of right now, expansion clubs [Inter Miami FC] and Nashville SC haven’t announced their local television deals.
