Where are MLB games streaming in 2022?

Amazon Prime Video: New York Yankees fans will need an Amazon Prime subscription in order to see every game the team plays this season as 21 of them will be broadcast exclusively there — not on YES or anywhere else — primarily on Friday nights.

Apple TV+: Apple’s streaming service carries two games on Friday nights throughout the season. A subscription is required, but the games are free of local blackout restrictions.

ESPN+: ESPN simulcasts its Sunday Night Baseball broadcasts in its streaming app.

Facebook: The social media giant will broadcast one game per week exclusively on its platform for the fifth straight year — primarily on Mondays and Tuesdays — and no local blackouts will apply.

Peacock: NBC’s streaming app announced in early April that it will carry early Sunday games from early May through early September in addition to the MLB Futures Game on July 16. A premium subscription is required to watch and games are not subject to blackouts.

YouTube: One game each week will be streamed on MLB’s YouTube page and a dedicated channel on YouTube TV. There will be no local blackout restrictions.

TBS re-enters the national broadcast scene

Once upon a time TBS — “the Superstation” — carried Atlanta Braves games live from coast to coast and since 2007 has broadcast either the American or National League Championship Series. In 2022 the network will show games on Tuesday evenings on all its carriers, its website and streaming app as well as the Bleacher Report app.
