Live stream 2019 MLB World Series Online
This guide will show you how to live stream the 2019 World Series between the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros.
Even without a cable TV subscription, there are a number of ways that cord cutters can legally tune in to FOX for all the games with a TV antenna or by using a Roku, smartphone, Apple TV, Firestick, PC or game console.
If you want to the best World Series live stream, my pick is fuboTV. The sports-first streaming service has coverage of 94 percent of local FOX stations across the U.S.
fuboTV offers a free 7-day trial that you can easily cancel online if you don’t want to keep the service. So you can essentially live stream World Series games free for a week.
fuboTV has 100+ channels, including local FOX stations, which will carry all seven games — if necessary.
Key sports channels such as FS1, FS2, Big Ten Network, and TNT are part of the channel lineup. There are dozens of entertainment networks too, including A&E, National Geographic, History, IFC, FX, and HGTV. Subscribers get 30 hours of Cloud DVR, a massive library of movies and “look-back” which captures sporting events that aired in the last 72 hours.
Own a 4K HDR television? During the free trial, there is an NFL and college football game airing in 4K HDR. The Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings in Oct. 24. Texas Tech vs Kansas is Oct. 26.
If you keep fuboTV after the trial, the regular rate of $54.99 per month kicks in.
There are solid mobile apps for iPhone and Android, fuboTV works on just about every streaming device.
Look over the fuboTV channel lineup in your area to see if it’s a good fit. If not, keep reading because you have lots of other choices.
The Astros vs Nationals face off is being viewed by many as a “throwback” World Series because of the impressive pitching lineup on both teams.

How to watch the World Series for free
There are advantages to owning your own TV antenna, especially during World Series week.
You will want to have a great picture when that first game kicks off at Fenway Park, especially if you have a big TV.
Well, here’s something your cable company won’t be blabbing about anytime soon. Using a TV antenna will actually give you a better picture than a cable subscription.
Broadcasts from local towers – like your local FOX affiliate – are transmitting signals that are uncompressed HD quality. You will notice quite a difference in picture quality once you set up your antenna and scan for channels. And guess what? Once the series is over, you can keep watching those channels for FREE.
Hulu with Live TV: Watch 2019 World Series games Online
Hulu with Live TV is my runner-up pick this year for watching the World Series because you’re covered no matter where you go.
You could be sitting in the back of a cab with just your iPhone or kicking back in your living room watching the game on your Roku.
Either way, Hulu with Live TV has all your bases covered for getting FOX live in many places around the country. You can check out some other channels like ESPN, Viceland and CBS Sports Network.
A Hulu with Live TV subscription gives you 65+ channels for $55 per month. You will also get unlimited access to Hulu’s on-demand library and Hulu Originals like “The Handmaid’s Tale.” It’s the same Hulu on-demand service that people pay $5.99 per month for.
Subscribers can also live stream the World Series and pre-game coverage through the FOX Sports Go app. You just sign in to the app using your Hulu credentials. That gives you the ability to live stream the World Series on a streaming device anywhere.
Look over the channel lineup on Hulu’s Live TV package to see what you’ll get in your area.
