"How to Stream MLS Live Without Cable in 2022"

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.

For teams that air their matches on a Bally Sports RSN (Atlanta United FC], Columbus Crew SC, Minnesota United FC, Sporting Kansas City), YES Network (New York City FC), Altitude (Colorado Rapids) or Spectrum SportsNet (LA Galaxy) your only option is DIRECTV STREAM. The good news is that DIRECTV STREAM, now offers a 5-Day Free Trial.

If you want to stream games on MSG (New York Red Bulls), ROOT Sports Northwest (Portland Timbers), your least expensive option is fuboTV ($64.99), which is available with a 7-Day Free Trial.

Teams that are on NBC Sports RSNs like the San Jose Earthquakes and D.C. United are available on fuboTV, DIRECTV STREAM, Hulu Live TV, and YouTube TV.

For the 2022 season, some MLS clubs have arrangements with streaming partners instead of RSNs to broadcast games not televised nationally.

For instance, Austin FC, Philadelphia Union, FC Cincinnati, Chicago Fire, and Charlotte FC, will be streaming their games on the team’s website, while Real Salt Lake will stream locally on KSLSports.com and [Seattle Sounders] on Amazon Prime Video.

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 $6.99 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.

ABC will carry 10 games this season, ESPN with 23, and 1 will be on ESPN2. There will be 27 on FS1, with an additional 7 on FOX.

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.
