How to stream MLB online in Canada

Never miss another pitch from the Major League. Here are all your options to watch MLB in Canada.

Last season baseball fans had to make do with a 60-game sprint of a regular season due to the pandemic. Thankfully, this year the standard 162-game fixture is back.

In terms of Canadian baseball fans, the Toronto Blue Jays remain hugely popular despite enduring some very lean years since their consecutive World Series triumphs back in 1992 and 1993. Yet watching them live in this country is not always an easy proposition.

That is especially so following MLB.TV’s announcement back in February 2020 it will blackout Blue Jays games in Canada. That decision drew the Blue Jays in line with the rest of the MLB’s 29 teams, who all face blackouts in their local markets with MLB.TV. The situation is more straightforward if you just want your baseball fix from all other MLB teams.

The Blue Jays are owned by Rogers Communications, which holds the MLB broadcast rights in Canada through Sportsnet. Read on to find out all your viewing options.

If you have a cable subscription in Canada, you can watch MLB on Sportsnet, TVA Sports, TSN or RDS. Blue Jays games are on Sportsnet or TVA Sports, Sportsnet’s French-language partner. If not, you have streaming options for certain games and teams through DAZN, SN NOW or MLB.TV.

Streaming MLB games with MLB.TV

As stated above, Toronto Blue Jays games are now subject to blackouts on MLB.TV in Canada. But with an MLB.TV subscription, you get access to every other out-of-market team. There’s a free 7-day trial period. If you don’t cancel your trial by the 8th day, you will be billed the monthly or annual price.

There are currently two options for signing up. You can get All Teams for $129.99 or $24.99/month or there is a Single Team package for $109.99.

It also boasts a range of features. Multi-View lets you watch up to four games at once. There’s a catch-up feature, full game archives and much more.

All games are available in HD and 60fps, provided your device and Internet connection can handle it. It also sports real-time highlights and player stats that update as the game progresses. You can choose between home and away announcers for each game. Alternatively, you can bypass the video altogether and just listen to the live game day audio feed, freeing your eyeballs to focus on other tasks.

Which devices are compatible with MLB.TV?

Most modern devices support MLB.TV, giving you plenty of ways to watch the ball game. The MLB.TV website offers the most versatile viewing experience, with support for 60fps HD video.

No matter how many devices you own, you can only access a single MLB.TV account on one desktop and one mobile device simultaneously. Sharing accounts is against MLB.TV’s terms of service and doing so can lead to account deactivation. For information on billing, devices, troubleshooting and much more, check out MLB.TV’s full online support hub.

How much data does MLB.TV use?

MLB.TV makes use of adaptive streaming technology, adjusting video quality based on the speed of your Internet connection. Speeds between 1.8Mbps and 3Mbps will get you an SD stream, speeds between 3Mbps and 5Mbps will get you an HD stream and anything above 5Mbps will get you access to 60fps HD.

Considering a typical MLB game lasts around three hours, this means MLB.TV will chew through roughly 2.4GB per game when streaming in SD, 4GB per game when streaming in HD and 6.8GB when streaming in 60fps HD. If you just want to listen to the game day audio feed, that will use up roughly 675MB per game.
