How to Stream the 2021 MLB Postseason Live For Free or Cheap

Jason Gurwin

The 2021 MLB Postseason is underway and it’s simple to watch the games if you’re a cord-cutter. There are now six services that offer MLB Playoff games, most of which you can try for free with a 7-Day Free Trial.

2021 MLB Postseason

  • When: October 5th - November 3rd
  • TV: FOX, FS1, TBS, ESPN, & MLB Network

Free Trial

Hulu + Live TV

  • ESPN
  • TBS
  • FOX & FS1

Budget Pick

Sling TV “Orange”

  • ESPN & TNT
  • NBA TV (+$11)
  • No Local RSNs

While most games throughout the MLB Playoffs will air on FOX, FS1, and TBS, two games during the ALDS will air on MLB Network.

You can get every game on TBS, FOX, FS1, MLB Network, and ESPN by subscribing to Sling TV, DIRECTV STREAM, and YouTube TV. Hulu Live TV includes every game, except those on MLB Network, while fuboTV will offer every AL Playoff game, but won’t carry the NLDS and NLCS, since they don’t have TBS.

For a limited time, you can get their first month of Sling Blue (FOX*, FS1, TBS) for just $10 (normally $35), plus a free month of 200 Hour DVR (normally $5 a month).

If you are a MLB.TV subscriber, you can authenticate with your cable or streaming credentials to watch some games directly from MLB.com or the MLB.App.

American League

Most American League Postseason games will air on FS1 or FOX. The AL Wild Card Game will air on ESPN and two ALDS games (one from each series) will air on MLB Network.

  • ESPN: Televising AL Wild Card Game
  • MLB Network: Televising 2 ALDS Games
  • FS1 & FOX: Televising most ALDS and all of ALDS

While MLB Network is part of the Sling TV “Sports Extra” and fuboTV “Sports Plus” add-on – there will be a free preview of MLB Network from Oct. 6-15 to customers.

For the first time ever, the every MLB postseason game on Fox will be streamed in 4K. You can either watch it directly in fuboTV or with your TV Everywhere credentials from other services in the Fox or Fox Sports App.
