Looking for the MLB live stream? Here’s where you can watch playoff baseball online and locate an Astros vs. Red Sox live stream.
Live Steam Red Sox vs Astros On DIRECTV NOW
DIRECTV NOW is one of the most popular services for cord cutters and one of the best for watching the MLB playoffs. This streaming service is only one of two services that offer every channel you will need. DIRECTV NOW offers TBS, ESPN, FS1, and MLBN on their $50/month “Just Right” plan. FOX is also included, but it is worth noting that it is not available in every local TV market. They currently offer a 7-day free trial.
**UPDATE** DIRECTV NOW has added MLBN to their $35/month plan for a limited time.
How To Live Stream Red Sox VS Astros On PlayStation Vue
PlayStation Vue is also another very popular service but once again, does not come in cheap. To get TBS, ESPN, FOX, FS1, and MLBN it will cost you $44.99/mo as part of their second-tier “core” package. Yet again, FOX is only available in select markets. They currently offer a 5-day free trial.
How To Stream Red Sox VS Astros On Sling TV
Sling TV is one of favorite streaming services because of the great price and great quality of the service. For those that are unfamiliar with Sling TV, they are one of the original streaming services on the cord cutting market. Sling TV offers TBS, ESPN, FS1, and FOX. Noticeably absent is MLBN but as previously mentioned, only two games will appear on MLBN. Once again FOX is only available in select markets.
You will need to sign up for the Sling Orange + Blue package to get these channels, which runs $40/month. It is important to know that Sling TV may blackout games if they appear on your regional sports networks. You can sign up for a 7-day free trial here. They are currently offering promotions for discounted AirTV players, OTA antennas, and Roku Premiere and streaming sticks.
How To Stream Red Sox VS Astros On fuboTV
fuboTV is a great cord cutting option for sports fanatics, but it is a little lackluster when it comes to the MLB playoffs. Noticeably absent from their channel line-up are ESPN and TBS. However, they do carry FS1 and FOX. fuboTV is probably not the best option if you only want baseball. It is a great option if you are looking for other sports coverage such as soccer, football, and golf. Currently, they are offering quite a deal for the fubo Premier package. If you sign-up for 2 months you will get a special $19.99/rate. It will cost $34.99/month after the two-month promotion is over.
