Will SNY have all New York Mets games?
SNY will carry the majority of New York Mets games for the 2021 season.
Three games will be on FOX. One game will be on TBS on Aug. 2, but will also be aired simultaneously on SNY.
Hulu with Live TV
Hulu with Live TV is the cheapest option for streaming SNY live for Mets games.
Subscribers get 75+ channels, including the channels you will need for games not airing on SportsNet New York. FOX, TBS and ESPN are included in the channel lineup.
A&E, Discovery Channel and HGTV are among the entertainment channels.
Subscribers get 50 hours of Cloud DVR to record games, and unlimited access to Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu’s on-demand library.
Hulu works on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chomecast, Apple TV and Android TV devices. There are mobile apps for iPhones and Android smartphones. And you can live stream all your channels on a PC or Mac, too.
Hulu + Live TV is the most economical choice if you already subscribe to Hulu’s on-demand service. A Hulu + Live TV subscription includes both services for $64.99 per month.

fuboTV has 119+ channels that really serves as a replacement for the robust lineup you had with a cable TV package.
AMC, ESPN, HGTV, MSNBC, Golf Channel and Hallmark channels are part of the standard lineup. You will have local ABC, CBS, NBC, NBC Sports and FOX stations.
fuboTV is the only live TV service that offers select sporting events and entertainment in 4K resolution.
So if you have a 4K HDR10 television and compatible streaming device, fuboTV can definitely give you some programming in higher resolution.
There’s an on-demand library of movies and TV shows. fuboTV includes 250 hours of Cloud DVR. You can catch up on sporting events that aired in the last 72 hours by using fubo’s “look back” feature.
A subscription costs $64.99 per month.
fuboTV works on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Fire Stick, Chromecast, Apple TV and Android TV devices. You can also watch live TV on a PC or use a mobile app on iPhone and Android smartphones.
Subscribers can activate the NBC Sports app, which supports an SNY live stream. There are more than 40 TV Everywhere apps that can be activated with a fuboTV subscription.
You won’t have TBS, but that probably won’t matter to Mets fans too much. There was only one Mets game on TBS in 2020, and it was simulcast on SNY.
YouTube TV has 85+ channels and carries SNY in the New York Mets market. A subscription costs $64.99 and includes unlimited Cloud DVR. The service carries local FOX, ABC, NBC and CBS stations.
You Tube TV works on Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast and other major streaming devices. You can check out a free trial for 7 days.
Is SNY on Sling TV?
No. Sling TV does not carry SNY in any of its channel packages.
A possible workaround is that you can sign into the NBC Sports app, and see if there is a SNY live stream. But if you want a reliable way to live stream SNY without a cable subscription, you are better off subscribing to Hulu with Live TV, fuboTV or YouTube TV.
What’s the best way to watch SNY without cable?
Hulu + Live TV is the best deal for streaming SNY without a cable TV subscription. Hulu with Live TV has 75+ live TV channels, 50 hours of Cloud DVR and a deep library of movies, live sports and TV shows. Disney+ and ESPN+ is now included with Hulu’s live TV service.
You can look over Hulu’s channel lineup before deciding whether to sign up.
If you want a slightly larger channel lineup, then fuboTV has 119+ channels, some 4K streaming and costs about $5 less per month. fuboTV lets you look at the channel lineup in your area. And you can check out a free 7-day trial.
