How to Watch the World Series Without a Cable Subscription
The MLB championship series are set and we’re in the midst of the most exciting baseball of the season. It also means that with each passing day we’re getting closer and closer to the World Series.
While we obviously don’t know which two teams will square off to become the 2018 world champion, there are some things we do know: like how you can watch the tournament if you’ve cut the cable cord.
No cable subscription? No problem. Here’s how you can enjoy the World Series, which is being broadcast entirely on FOX this year.
As one of the premier replacements for traditional cable TV, Sling offers a wide variety of channels including FOX, which will broadcast the World Series in its entirety. This means that if you have the service you can watch directly through your Sling app, which is available on most smart TVs, video game consoles and mobile phones.
Sling offers it’s Sling Blue package starting at $25/month, which includes access to FOX. This is important to note, as the Sling Orange package doesn’t include FOX or any of the broadcast networks.
If you don’t already have it, the service offers new customers a 7-day free trial, which is easy to cancel if you aren’t interested in keeping the service after the initial week.
If you’re not a fan of Sling TV – or have taken advantage of its free trial in the past – you can try YouTube’s streaming TV service. Available in most cities throughout the country, YouTube TV is a lot like Sling but with a few small differences.
The YouTube TV packages start at $35/month for base services without premium add-ons like Showtime or HBO. Just like Sling, you’ll get a free, 7-day trial that you can cancel before your credit card is charged. YouTube TV offers access to FOX, so you’ll be able to catch every World Series game.
Hulu’s streaming service has also built out a live television option. Not-so-cleverly called Hulu with Live TV, the service offers access to FOX and more than 50 other channels, as well as full use of the normal Hulu streaming service.
For $39.99 per month you receive access to all of this. Also, like the other services outlined above, you get a 7-day free trial if you’ve never had the Live TV service before.
