MLB.TV is free to stream this weekend on YouTube TV, Prime Video channels and the MLB app (no credit card required) – The Streamable

To prepare you for the second half of the MLB season, through Sunday, July 18, MLB.TV is streaming for free. While you can stream it for free on the MLB.TV website and the MLB app, it’s also available in other places where you can subscribe, including YouTube TV and Amazon Prime Video Channels.

Looking to stream the MLB 2021 MLB Playoffs and Network?

You can stream MLB Network, which is available with a 7-day free trial from fuboTV. The channels are also available on Sling TV, DIRECTV STREAM and YouTube TV.

While MLB Network is usually an add-on to many of these services, during the MLB Playoffs it will be included for free at no additional cost.

If you want to stream the entire postseason for less, you can get their first month of Sling Blue (FOX, FS1, TBS) for just $10 (normally $35), plus a free month of 200 DVR hours (normally $5 $ per month).

You’ll also get a free preview from MLB Network through October 15, which is normally part of their Sports Extra add-on ($11).

While you can normally get a free trial of MLB.TV, it doesn’t require you to sign up or add a credit card — you can just stream.

MLB.TV includes out-of-market access to almost all games (except ESPN, FOX and MLB Network telecasts). This is great for fans who live far from your favorite team or want to catch teams or players outside your area. You’ll also be able to watch all Spring Training games without local cuts.

For YouTube TV users, MLB.TV broadcasts will be available in the YouTube TV schedule guide, but if you are using a “Custom Guide”, you must make sure to go to “Settings” -> “Live Guide ” to add them.

MLB.TV was not offered by any other live TV streaming service, but it has been available through Amazon Prime Video Channels for a few seasons.
