Finding live baseball streams that are both high quality and safe for your computer can be hard to find.
Fortunately, I have mastered the art of watching my Pittsburgh Pirates lose even though I don’t have cable.
First off, let’s talk about the “over the water” way of watching baseball games.
How to Stream MLB Online (Paid)
If you are not able to watch a game in person, there are several ways to watch baseball live online from your home without cables. And these paths, as mentioned, are “above the water”.
- Slingshot television
One of the best and most widely used options, Sling TV currently has a free trial offer that allows you to try out the service with no upfront commitment. For baseball fans in particular, you’ll probably want to check out the Orange + Blue Sling plan. After your free trial, it will only cost you $ 45 per month and give you FOX, FOX Sports, and ESPN.
- Hulu + Live TV
At one of the best values on the market right now, you can get Hulu and a live TV subscription for just $ 54.99 per month. Not only do you get Hulu’s fantastic streaming service, but you also get live TV channels like FOX, FS1, ESPN, and ESPN2. Additionally, in some markets you can get YES, SNY, and CBS Sports.
How to Stream MLB Online (FREE!)
As you might expect, something that is free is not entirely “over the edge” in terms of legality. However, sometimes we just don’t have the money to subscribe to outlets like Sling TV or Hulu.
And, if you fall into this category, SportSurge.net is for you.
Once you are on the website just select the ‘Baseball’ option and it will automatically load all daily games for you.
After selecting a game, you will see a list of all of the game’s running streams, along with the following variables:
- Frame rate
Usually when I select a stream I look for the highest resolution without any ads.
Even so, you might get one or two ads to click to get the game. And in some cases, ads will reappear if you try to go full screen.
Having said that: I am completely satisfied with the service provided by the website 99.9% of the time.
And best of all: it’s legit. The website was founded on Reddit by the majority of sports subscribers after moderators decided that promoting feeds on the website was no longer allowed.
If you don’t mind clicking annoying ads at first, then streaming MLB games right to your computer at no cost is very easy.
I often use an HDMI cord to connect my laptop to my 55 inch TV and the games are crystal clear.
