Can I use a VPN to live stream MLB games from another country?

Some users watch MLB games by connecting to a VPN server in a country other than their own, but doing so may violate copyright or the streaming service’s terms of use. ExpressVPN is a privacy and security tool, and using it to circumvent copyright is against our Terms of Service. We cannot see or control what you do while connected to our VPN, so you are responsible for ensuring that your use complies with all relevant terms and laws.

Live stream MLB games on MLB.TV

The easiest way to watch every MLB game is with an MLB.TV subscription. MLB.TV is available globally, and ExpressVPN works seamlessly with MLB.TV to ensure you can stream the action privately and securely.

MLB.TV

Price: 30 USD/month or 150 USD/season

The MLB.TV app is the most comprehensive and affordable option for streaming the entire MLB season. MLB.TV International users can live stream the Home Run Derby, All-Star Game, and postseason without blackouts. MLB.TV also offers a multiview feature, allowing subscribers to watch up to four games at once on supported Apple TV, Fire TV and Google TV devices. The service comes with a seven-day free trial, and also offers a monthly option.

Please note that blackouts still apply to MLB.TV users in the United States, Canada, and Guam.

Where to watch MLB games with free trials

Fubo

Price: 80 USD/month and up

Channels: ESPN, ESPN 2, Fox, FS1, MLB Network, select regional sports networks

Country: U.S.

On the downside, Fubo does not offer TBS, which airs national games on Tuesdays and select postseason games. However, fans from the United States can watch baseball games airing on Turner channels through Fubo if you purchase Max and the Bleacher Report Sports Add-On tier for Max, each of which cost 10 USD/month.

Fubo remains one of the few cord-cutting services to offer select regional sports networks for U.S. viewers, such as Marquee Sports Network (Cubs), NBC Sports Bay Area (Giants), NESN (Red Sox), and Root Sports Northwest (Mariners). Note that for games on regional sports networks, the teams available to you will be determined by the home zip code on your billing account. In addition, the “Sports Plus” package that includes MLB Network costs an additional 11 USD per month. Fubo also announced that it will include MLB.TV as an add-on for 25 USD/month, though standard blackout rules still apply. Fubo comes with a 7-day free trial.

Note: You will need a U.S. credit/debit card to subscribe. The billing address used may determine which local channels are available, and you may be unable to change your location.

DirecTV Stream

Price: 85 USD/month and up

Channels: ESPN, ESPN 2, Fox, FS1, FS2, MLB Network, TBS, select regional sports networks

DirecTV Stream is often on the pricier side, especially if you want the MLB Network, but it’s a great option for U.S. fans to stream MLB games if you prefer a cord-cutting service over an additional streaming app. The service offers a 5-day free trial.

YouTube TV

Price: 73 USD/month and up

Channels: ESPN, ESPN 2, Fox, FS1, FS2, TBS

YouTube TV offers Americans a variety of channels that carry MLB games, and the subscription costs 73 USD/month. You may need to submit a U.S. ZIP code (e.g., 10022, 48104, etc.), but it accepts a wide array of payment options. If you don’t feel like committing to YouTube TV, use the free trial. However, note that YouTube TV no longer carries MLB Network following a carriage dispute in 2023.

  1. This doesn’t work all the time. I’m not sure if the MLB app is getting wise to VPNs but the Boston Yankee game last night was blacked out no matter what VPN location I used in the states. I finally had success with a site in Canada, however it dumped every time there was a commercial break and it required reconnecting.

  2. Express VPN isn’t working for the mlb.tv package like this article states. It did work last year. Have you got this fixed yet? The only reason I have express vpn is for baseball and now it’s not working.

  3. Trying to watch MLB.TV on laptop with Express VPN turned on. When I attempt to stream a live game, I get an error. MLB.TV’s website says you may experience streaming issues while connected to a VPN.

    Any thoughts?

  4. I’m using express VPN on Android and my first two games worked, but today’s game is getting blocked. Same team and same city. Any tips?

    1. Hi Richard,

      Please try the connecting to the closest server location you previously connected to. Also, please decline sharing your location with the app if possible.

  5. Why are Astros games still blacked out using a vpn and setting location as UK? I’ve followed instructions. This has been worthless so far

  6. Hello …
    Can you provide me with a streaming site that could provide Fox Sports Midwest via a Roku device?

    Thanks … bud hodge

  7. I have the ExpressVPN service. Can I use ExpressVPN to sign into MLB.TV to stream blackout games and then cast to a chromecast, or will it note that my Chromecast is on a router located in a blackout area?

  8. tried to stream Baltimore Orioles games on IPVANISH vpn using amazon firetv. miserable failure. why would YOUR vpn be better ? and i’ve heard VPN’s have some sort of trouble with Amazon fire products (by FAR the best and most commonly used streaming devices. Obviously your vpn is not helpful to us if it doesnt work with FireTv/stick products ) what’s a roku/ an australian animal ?) thanx

      1. Hello. Can I get around the mlb blackouts with your service. I have a mlbtv subscription and a roku with my Samsung smart tv

  9. I am having the same issue with my appletv too (4th gen) i have my router (netscape) with expressvpn on it. MLB is still blackout through both systems.
    I got this specifically for watching baseball.

      1. I am going through all your youtube videos, and redoing everything step by step hopefully this will work.

        1. This didn’t help. I’ve tried attaching mediastreamer, but everything else is set up through router. I don’t know how to attach this through expressvpnrouter. Any suggestions?

      2. I got it up and working now. I had to add Media streamer to my expressvpn router. Thankyou for all the youtube videos that walked me through this.

  10. I have my AppleTV set up with Mediastreamer and MLB does not work. I then changed my router’s L2PT settings to be out of the blackout zones, and now every game is blacked out. I’ll be honest, this was one of the big reasons for me to subscribe in the first place.

  11. Just got signed up today and used the step by step guide for setting up with a 4th gen Apple TV by first creating a ddns account, then doing the Dynamic DNS Registration, then manually
    configuring the DNS server IP on the Apple TV’s settings. After restarting via settings (per instructions) I still get blacked out of local games. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Michael,

      A VPN secures your connection and let’s you enjoy baseball streams no matter where you are. Just fire up ExpressVPN, connect to a location near the tournament locale, and you’ll be all set.

      If you run into any issues, be sure to get help from Support: https://www.expressvpn.com/support/

  12. MLB at bat is not working for me. I tried a GPS location spoofer in conjunction with VPNexpress and it still doesnt work. I am using device gps only, not advanced tracking.

    1. Hi Vic,

      Try not to use a GPS location spoofer with ExpressVPN. With a VPN, your IP address is already hidden and replaced by the server address you connect to. If you have further problems, please contact the Support team at https://www.expressvpn.com/support/ for further assistance.

    1. Hi Bill,

      ExpressVPN does not interfere with any streamimg service you choose to use. In fact, it helps you access your favorite sport streams no matter where you are.

      If you have problems using ExpressVPN to watch NESN, please contact the Support team at https://www.expressvpn.com/support/ 🙂

  13. It’s not working for the World Baseball Classic on mlb.tv only watchable in the US. I need help or a refund on my money.

  14. I think MLB has gotten wise to the VPN trick. I’m trying to stream the World Baseball Classic in the UK (where it’s blacklisted). Have used Express VPN to both DC and NY and MLB TV says,

    “We’re sorry. We have determined that you are blacked out of watching the game you selected, due to television broadcaster restrictions. An archive copy of the game will be available 90 minutes after the game ends.”

    Is there a solution to this, or are we stuck?

    🙁

    1. Hi Christian,

      A VPN can help you stream sports no matter where you are. Simply pick a broadcaster that is showing the South African cricket tour, connect to a VPN server in that location, then you’ll be able to watch the games in New Zealand or anywhere else!

  15. Is there any chance that I can get VPN Express to use in Spain and UK while I am away in Europe this month. We are huge baseball fans and don’t want to miss a minute. If it’s possible, can I use wifi to connect in our hotel room? Thanks for your help.
