Baseball season is upon us, which means we get to once again enjoy highlight reel catches, towering home runs, and incredible pitching performances every single night. One of the best parts about being a baseball fan is it feels there’s always something to watch. Since there are so many games in a year, you can basically be watching a game every single night and your Roku streaming player and Roku TV can be a huge help to watch during the entire season.

For both the regular season and playoffs, you’ll have plenty of options to watch MLB streaming live on Roku devices. This is available across several channels, regardless if you have a cable subscription or not. Here are the top channels that’ll be helpful to live stream MLB games this year.

MLB.TV®

The channel gives you the ability to watch MLB’s official streaming service, MLB.TV, on your Roku streaming player or Roku TV. You’ll need an MLB.TV subscription to watch any of the games on here, but with your subscription you’ll get access to a ton of games. There are blackouts of local games, but you can watch all other MLB games during the entire regular season. That’s well over 2,000 games. If you’re trying to watch just one team, there’s also a subscription option to pay less to get access to just that team’s games as long as they’re out-of-market.

Did you know you could have watched 94 of the top 100 most-watched TV programs of last year for free with an antenna? It’s true!

In most major cities, a simple Over-the-Air (OTA) HDTV antenna can give you access to local and national broadcast networks including ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, all in beautiful HD quality. When you combine Tablo – a network-connected DVR designed specifically for use with Over-the-Air TV antennas – with your Roku streaming player or Roku TV, you can enjoy all of this free content live as it airs, or record it for later just like you would with a DVR from a cable or satellite company.

How Tablo Works
Free TV signals are captured from local broadcast towers by your Over-the-Air antenna which then connects to Tablo – a small device the size of a paperback book. Tablo pipes those live TV signals over your home’s WiFi network so Roku devices, and your other internet-connected devices, can access them.
