How to Watch the MLS All-Star Game Without a Cable Subscription
On August 1, 2018, the MLS All-Star Game will take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The league’s best and brightest will take on international superstars from Juventus and you’ll be able to catch all the action in person or on TV. If you’re not able to secure tickets or travel to this midseason soccer event, there will be plenty of ways to watch the coverage via your screens.
If you’re a person who’s cut the cord and eliminated your cable subscription, let us tell you how you can watch the game in August.
Sling TV is usually the option we recommend the most, as it has a no-hassle 7-day trial and some of the most inexpensive streaming cable packages available (if you decide to keep the service after the game). Sling includes access to ESPN if you choose the “Sling Orange” option or, if you want Spanish language coverage via Uni-Mas, you can select the “Sling Blue” option.
Try YouTube TV
Available in most cities throughout the country, YouTube TV is a lot like Sling TV, with some slight differences. The YouTube TV packages start at $40/month for base services without premium add-ons like Showtime or HBO. You can get a free, seven-day trial that you can cancel before your credit card is charged and it offers complete access to ESPN, but not Uni-Mas.
Hulu with Live TV
Much like YouTube TV, Hulu’s live TV service offers access to the ESPN channels you’ll need, which means it’s another great option for watching the MLS All-Star Game. Hulu with Live TV costs $39.99 per month for the base package, which includes the ESPN channels. And just like with the other services, you can get free access for up to a week as long as you’ve haven’t signed up for the live TV package in the past.
