  • Cost: $2.99 a month with a free 7-day trial
  • Estimated time to set up: Less than five minutes, no installation required

MLB has its own app designated for streaming — MLB At Bat. With this app, you only have access to one free game a month, decided upon by MLB At Bat and highlights from recently played games. In order to watch full games from the season, you’ll need a subscription to MLB.TV, which is $24.99 a month.

While this streaming option is available for $2.99 a month, you do still have to endure the ads and there’s limited content as far as the games are concerned. If you’re unsure, MLB At Bat offers a 7-day free trial to test the waters.

DAZN allows you to stream from two devices at once and is compatible with almost every streaming device imaginable.
