Baseball playoffs

I've been a baseball fan for years. However, I've not watched as much in the last few years. But I still love baseball, and am always excited about the playoffs. But, being a streamer, it's not always easy to watch live sports.

Live sports was not available in the early days of streaming, and some sports have been slower than others to be available for streamers. Baseball has been more available than some other sports, but it still has blackouts that keep streamers from being able to watch their nearest team.

The playoffs is a different situation, though. The only thing you have to worry about is finding a streaming service carrying the games.

Today's games are on TBS. You can stream TBS on:

  • Sling TV (Orange, Blue, Orange+Blue)
  • Hulu+Live TV
  • YouTube TV
  • DirecTV Stream

Note that Fubo, the streaming service that touts itself as the app for sports, doesn't carry TBS.

Tomorrow's games are on MLB Network and Fox Sports 1. The services that carry FS1 are:

  • Sling TV (Blue, Orange+Blue)
  • Vidgo
  • Hulu+Live TV
  • YouTube TV
  • Fubo TV
  • DirecTV Stream

MLB Network is on:

  • Sling TV (Blue, Orange+Blue) with Sports Extra
  • YouTube TV
  • Fubo TV
  • DirecTV Stream (Choice)

So, what one service carries it all? There are three, actually.

  • Sling TV (Blue) with Sports Extra
  • YouTube TV
  • DirecTV Stream (Choice)

With any of those three services, you can watch the baseball divisional series. What about the league championships? Those are on Fox, Fox Sports 1, and TBS. To watch those games you'll need one of these:

  • Sling TV (Blue, Orange+Blue) if you have an antenna for Fox.
  • Hulu+Live TV
  • YouTube TV
  • DirecTV Stream

For the World Series, you'll need Fox, which is on:

  • Hulu+Live TV
  • YouTube TV
  • Fubo TV
  • DirecTV Stream

Or, an antenna.

To watch everything, all the baseball playoffs, what services have that?

  • Sling TV (Blue) with Sports Extra, if you have an antenna for Fox.
  • YouTube TV
  • DirecTV Stream (Choice)

So, if you are ready for some baseball, you have some decisions to make, if that's to be a part of your Streaming Life this year.
