ESPN+ Announces MLB Streaming Schedule for August
ESPN+, along with Peacock and Apple TV+, are among the national streaming partners for Major League Baseball. It’s part of a fragmented streaming landscape for baseball, which also includes the Bally Sports+ streaming product offered by some individual teams — with more to come — as well as the MLB.TV package, on which fans can watch out-of-market games.
Now, ESPN has announced the scheduled matchups for the August games that will stream on that the ESPN+ platform.
The month features 28 games on ESPN+, including one nearly every day of the month, and 28 of the 30 teams are represented. The lineup starts with the Seattle Mariners against the New York Yankees on Monday, August 1, and finishes up with the Oakland Athletics against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday, August 31.
The Atlanta Braves, the defending World Series Champion, appear the most times in August, with six games.
