The MLB postseason is charging on as we enter the 2023 World Series with the Texas Rangers and the Arizona Diamondbacks. But, if you’ve cut the cord since last year, it might be time to upgrade your streaming setup so you can catch every baseball playoff game live. Below is a quick guide on how to stream the 2023 MLB playoffs online without cable.
How to Watch MLB Playoffs Online
Coverage of the 2023 baseball playoffs was spread out across ESPN, FOX, FS1, and TBS, but World Series games are shown exclusively on FOX. That means cord-cutters will want a live TV streaming service that carries FOX. Below are three of our favorite such streamers — including a couple with free trials that you can use to stream MLB playoff games for free.
Editor’s Pick: DirecTV Stream
Also Great: fuboTV
Most Affordable: Sling
1. Stream MLB Playoffs on DirecTV Stream
The best way to watch the MLB playoffs online is through DirecTV Stream, which gets you the same TV coverage as DirecTV’s satellite service but for online streaming. The DirecTV Stream Choice package channel lineup includes FOX for livestreams of every World Series playoff game airing right now. Try it now with a five-day free trial, then continue on with DirecTV Stream Choice for $99.99/month.
2. Stream MLB Playoffs on fuboTV
fuboTV is another one of the best streaming services for watching baseball online and their channel lineup includes FOX for World Series playoff games. fubo is currently offering a free trial that you can use to watch the MLB playoffs online for free. Choose to continue afterward from $74.99 a month for 100+ live TV channels or cancel before your free trial is over.
3. Stream MLB Playoffs on Sling
A more affordable live TV streaming option is Sling, whose Blue plan starts at $40 a month, and Sling is currently running a deal that gets you 50% off your first month (but Sling doesn’t offer a free trial). This Blue package carries FOX (in most regions), letting you stream every remaining baseball playoff game online.
