How to Watch MLB Online from Anywhere

Get ready MLB fans, the new season started from April 3rd 2016 and will continue on till October 2nd 2016. Now if you wondering where you can watch Major League Baseball outside USA? Then here is everything you need to know about how to watch MLB online. There are two ways through which you can live stream MLB matches online:

  • Use selective broadcasting channels to watch MLB online.
  • Use MLB TV and stream your favorite matches live.

Watch MLB Online on Broadcasting Channels

There are selective channels that broadcast MLB but due to geo restrictions, you won’t be able to access them from anywhere on earth.

The solution to this problem – use a VPN. Below are a list channels that broadcast MLB games and some of the best VPN services that enable you to unblock the respective channels. This way you can bypass geo restrictions and enjoy high quality online streaming of MLB games.

Use MLB TV to Watch Live or On-Demand Matches

The second method to watch MLB online is through MLB TV. A season-long subscription will cost you $109.99 and with that, you get live coverage of all the matches. Not only that, with MLB TV you can also watch out-of-market matches live or on-demand.

Similarly, MLB TV also gives you access to exclusive content such as the choice of home or away broadcast, multi-game viewing, live game DVR, and much more. You can use MLB TV on different platforms as it is supported across 400 different devices.

However, MLB TV is subject to blackouts within US and parts of Canada. What this means is that if your favorite team is playing in your city then its game will be blacked out on MLB TV. So how do you overcome MLB blackouts?

Overcome Blackouts & Watch MLB Live

Now that you know how to watch MLB games online, here is a quick workaround for MLB TV blackouts. If you have a subscription to MLB TV then in the fine print clauses mentioned at the bottom of the website, you can see ‘Blackout and other restrictions apply’. What this means is that you can watch MLB games only in certain territories. These blackouts apply to national and regional territories as well.

You can overcome regional and national blackouts using a VPN service. There are numerous servers provided by a VPN service which are located across various countries and within USA. Using these servers, you can bypass blackout and watch MLB online. To illustrate our point, here are few examples:

  • If NY Yankees are playing on a given day, their game will be blacked out across New York. To bypass blackouts, connect to US server located in any location other than New York (let’s say Washington) and watch MLB live.
  • Similarly, if All Star Game is going to be broadcasted throughout USA by a certain channel than it will be blacked out across entire US. You can watch All Star MLB game by connecting to any other region (let’s say UK based VPN servers) and lift the MLB TV national blackout.

Important Dates to Remember

Once you have selected the VPN service to unblock geo restricted channels and bypass blackouts, you can note down these important dates in your calendar. These are some upcoming MLB events in addition to the ongoing regular season.

April 4, 2016Monday Opening Day
April 15, 2016Jackie Robinson Day
May 31, 2016Roberto Clemente Day
June 9 – 11, 2016MLB Draft
July 12, 201687 All Star Game, Petco Park, San Diego

The Wrap

The Major League Baseball season is already underway and you cannot waste anymore time if you want to watch it online. The list of channels and the respective VPN services that we have mentioned above will allow you to watch MLB online from anywhere in the world.

If you have subscription to MLB TV then blackouts will be a nuisance while you watch MBL games. This is where using anyone of the VPN services (mentioned above) will help you to lift regional and national blackouts.

Using our guide and having a VPN by your side, you will never have to miss a MLB match ever again. Currently, Kansas City Royals are the defending champions from last year and we can expect a lot of drama throughout the new season. Who’s your money on?
