Three happy young men watching football game and keeping arms raised while sitting on sofaThe 2018 Major League Baseball season is getting started as training camps kick this month. The good news is for the first time cord cutters have unprecedented access to MLB games.

So here is our cord cutting guide to MLB:

MLB Network

Currently only DIRECTV NOW and PlayStation Vue offer the MLB Network live. Great for anyone who wants to stay on top of the latest MLB news.

Regional Sports Network

If you want access to your local sports networks such as Fox Sports or Comcast SportsNet (CSN) and others we have good news for you. HuluFubo TV, Sling TVPlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, and DIRECTV NOW all offer local sports channels—just not all of them. Sadly you will have to do a bit of research to see what local sports network each has in your area. They all seem to have Fox Sports and the rest have a smattering of different regional sports networks. Make sure to visit their sites to find out what they have where you live.

They all offer a free trial so make sure to test them out first.

MLB.tv

If you live out of the market for your favorite teams (don’t live close to them) you should check out MLB.TV.

MLB.TV will stream to you every out-of-market game. You can pick to follow just one team or sign up for full access depending on what you are willing to pay. MLB.TV is available on iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromcast.

Although it may take research to find the right option for where you live it has never been easier to watch MLB.
