Local Market Broadcasts

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.

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

Games that air on one of the streaming partners, will often (but not always) also air on a local channel in your market. Once you subscribe, you will be able to stream your local MLS games on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon, Fire TV, Chromecast, iOS, and Android.

How to Watch Canadian Teams

To watch Toronto FC, Montreal Impact, and Vancouver Whitecaps FC in the U.S., you will need to subscribe to ESPN+ for out-of-market broadcasts which is available for $4.99 a month, after a 7-Day Free Trial.

In Canada, you may consider subscribing to TSN Direct for in-market streaming.

Nationally Televised Broadcasts

Nationally televised games that don’t air on your team’s RSN or in-market streaming service may air on ESPN, FOX, or FS1. Most services include this channel as part of their entry-level package.

Most of these games will air exclusively on these channels and won’t be available on your local RSN. You’ll also need these channels to watch the entire MLS playoffs.
