If you have a cable subscription or an antenna, you may watch the World Series for free.

Fox Sports Go is available if you have a cable or satellite subscription.

How to Stream the World Series Live
There are two methods to watch the World Series live:
Postseason.tv: The official source for MLB live broadcasts, which are only available during the postseason.
Live television streaming services: Any service that offers a live broadcast of the local Fox affiliate, such as fuboTV or Sling TV, will also stream the World Series.
World Series Official Live Stream Provider
For playoff games, including the World Series, Major League Baseball does not have an official live stream provider. Official MLB World Series live streams are only available if you have an MLB.tv subscription as well as a qualifying cable or satellite television provider.
This is known as a blackout, and it is caused by contractual obligations between Major League Baseball and the networks that pay to broadcast postseason games such as the World Series:
Postseason Live Blackout
Due to Major League Baseball exclusivities, all live games in the United States (including the territories of Guam and the United States Virgin Islands) and Canada will be blacked out throughout the MLB Postseason, with the exception of those games for which Authenticated Access is available. If you have an MLB.TV subscription and live in a blackout area, each of these games will be available as an archived game roughly 90 minutes after the game concludes.
Stream the World Series Live on MLB.com (Qualifying Subscribers Only)
Before you view the official World Series live stream, make sure you meet two requirements:
- You must subscribe to a qualifying television provider.
- You must subscribe to Major League Baseball’s streaming service.
If you match both of those criteria, you may be allowed to watch postseason games, like as the World Series, via the official MLB website.
- Navigate to MLB.com.
- Log in to your MLB.com account.
- Place your mouse over MLB.tv in the navigation bar.
- Click on Watch MLB.tv.
- Look for the TV icon beneath the game you are interested in, and click one of the links.
Watch the World Series Online With Fox Sports Go
If paying up for an MLB.tv subscription in addition to cable sounds too expensive, but you already have a cable or satellite subscription, you may watch the World Series on Fox Sports Go.
Here’s how to do it:
- Navigate to FOXSportsGO.com.
- Click Sign In.
- Click TV Provider Sign In.
- Validate your cable or satellite subscription.
- On game day, click on a World Series game in the Live Now section.
How to Live Stream the World Series Without Cable
Because the World Series is televised on Fox, you may watch it live on any service that has access to a local Fox station. There may be a few issues, but most live streaming television services offer a free trial period long enough to watch the entire World Series if you prefer not to pay for a television streaming subscription.
Here Are Some of the Services That May Allow You to Stream the World Series
- FuboTV is the streaming service of choice for many sports lovers, and if you reside in a participating market, it includes a feed of your local Fox station.
- Sling TV includes Fox, but you must select the Sling Blue or Sling Orange + Blue plan. Fox is not included in the Sling Orange package.
- Hulu with Live TV is an add-on for normal Hulu subscriptions that includes Fox.
- YouTube TV also contains Fox, which is available in 49 of the top 50 US areas, so it’s worth checking out.
Network television networks such as Fox are only available through internet streaming services if they have an agreement with the local affiliate in your area. You won’t be able to watch the World Series if your local Fox station hasn’t signed an agreement with a streaming service. To check if Fox is available in your area, go to the website of each streaming service and input your ZIP code.
How to Watch the World Series for Free Without Streaming
If all of your streaming choices have been exhausted, you may be able to watch the World Series for free. Because the World Series is televised on Fox, even if you don’t have cable, you can watch the entire event on your local Fox station.
The FCC DTV Reception Map is the greatest tool for determining whether you are within range of a Fox station. Enter your ZIP code or full address, and the tool will display the television stations in your area.
Many stations with strong signals can be received using low-cost interior antennas, although moderate and weak stations require more expensive outdoor antennas.
Other tools, such as Antenna Web, might provide further information about the type of antenna you require.
If you don’t have a television, connect a USB TV tuner to your computer and watch local television, including major events like the World Series, on your computer. This is an excellent option for sports lovers who do not own televisions and, because to regional restrictions, do not have access to Fox through internet streaming services.
