MASN is one of the few regional sports channels that remains elusive on streaming services.
DIRECTV STREAM (formerly AT&T TV) is the only option for watching in-market Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals games without a cable or satellite provider.
DIRECTV STREAM does cost more than competing services that live stream ESPN or Big Ten Network.
The Choice plan, which carries 90+ channels, is $84.99 per month. MASN and MASN2 is available throughout the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area.
DIRECTV STREAM still has one advantage over paying for Comcast, Cox or Spectrum. You can subscribe month to month and cancel whenever you want.
So if you’re looking to cut the cord, but still watch MLB or NCAA Division I games, you should consider whether its pros outweigh its cons.
Subscribers get three months of HBO Max free (a $45 value) before the $14.99-per-month rate kicks in.
The Choice bundle has a wide variety of regional sports channels including ESPN, ESPN2, NBC Sports Washington and ACC Network.
All of your local ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, Telemundo and Univision channels are included. And you get top cable TV channels such as ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, History, CNN and A&E.
And you don’t need to pay for a cable box.
DIRECTV STREAM works with Roku, Amazon Fire TV, iPhones, web browsers, tablets and Samsung Smart TVs.
What is MASN2?
The Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals regularly play games at or around the same time. To deal with the overlap, MASN has a second network called MASN2, which also shows live in-market games. MASN2 is also included in DIRECTV STREAM’s Choice package.
Can I use the MASN app to watch live MLB games?
MASN announced in January plans to launch its own sports app that will live stream more than 300 MLB games for the Orioles and Nationals. According to the network, you will need a pay-TV provider to activate the app. So it doesn’t serve as a standalone streaming service or alternative to a cable TV subscription.
Why can’t I stream MASN on Hulu or YouTube TV?
MASN has not negotiated a deal with any of the live TV streaming services, including Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, fuboTV and YouTube TV. The only other way to watch games that also air on MASN is through MLB.TV, but the service only airs out-of-market games.
