How to watch the movie-inspired MLB game online

MLB returns this week to the iconic field from the movie “Field of Dreams” in Dyersville, Iowa.

After a successful inaugural game last year, it looks like the league plans to hold an annual game on the enchanting field, known for being surrounded by long rows of corn stalks in the outfield. This year, the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds will play a regular season game at the iconic filming location.

The game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET this Thursday, August 11 and will be broadcast live on Fox, Fox Deportes and the Fox Sports app. For those without cable, the best way to stream the event live is on Sling TV, which currently offers unbeatable deals on live TV and sports.

This year’s game will include even more activations and ceremonies to celebrate the special setting. MLB will use clips, sounds and images from the film in a pre-game presentation for both fans at the stadium and viewers at home. The Cubs and Reds will also wear custom uniforms inspired by those worn by historic clubs in the early 20th century, another nostalgic touch.

After the match is over, multi-platinum country singer Walker Hayes will perform a series of songs on the court. Hayes is best known for his chart-topping songs “Fancy Like” and “Ya’ll Life,” which earned him his first Grammy nomination last year.

So how can you watch the entire event from home? The best way to stream the event live is on Sling TV, which is currently offering half of the first month to new users, bringing their Orange plan down to just $17.50/month. This includes networks such as Fox, ESPN, CNN, TNT, TBS and 50 hours of DVR storage. For a limited time, new subscribers will also have free access to Sling TV’s Premium Pass which includes Showtime, Starz and Epix.
