If you were a baseball fan in 1921, you might have huddled around a radio to listen to the World Series. And when, in Game 8, you heard that George “High Pockets” Kelly of the New York Giants hit the title-winning grounder, you might have cheered—or if you were a Yankees fan, thrown your newsboy cap to the ground and uttered some old-timey obscenity. Today, our ardor for the national pastime hasn’t changed much, but we certainly have more devices to yell at.
The League Championship Series both wrap up this weekend, and the 2018 World Series kicks off on Tuesday, October 23. We can expect the World Series to run through October 31. You can find the full playoff schedule here.
Luckily, these days, you don’t even need cable television to feel like you’re right there at the ballpark. Here's how to tune in from your mobile, your computer, or on your streamer box.
How to Watch
The World Series will be broadcast on Fox. You can watch the games on the Fox Sports GO! website, as long as you sign in with your account or your TV provider. The Fox Sports app, available on iOS and Android, will also be streaming the games.
Select playoffs will be streamed on MLB.tv, if you have a participating TV provider and an MLB.tv subscription.
You can also watch the games inside your favorite livestream subscription service. Fox can be streamed live with Hulu Live, DirecTV, Sling TV, fuboTV, and Playstation Vue. Make sure that the app lends you access to your local Fox affiliate, as streaming coverage can vary by ZIP code.
YouTube TV will also air the FOX coverage. With a YouTube TV account, you can watch anywhere you get your YouTube—laptop, phone, or Smart TV.
Of course, the best way to watch the World Series is with friends—or frenemies, if they’re rooting for the wrong team. Yelling at innocent telecoms devices might be America’s second favorite pastime since the days of the Radiola Grand, but it’s always better to yell at your devices with loved ones by your side.
