Stream Seattle Mariners games live on Roku, Fire TV Stick
Root Sports Northwest is a rarity among live TV streaming services.
AT&T TV is currently the only option for watching most Seattle Mariners games without a cable or satellite provider.
AT&T TV costs more than competing services that live stream ESPN or CNN.
The Choice plan, which carries 90+ channels, is $84.99 per month.
But AT&T TV still has one advantage over paying for DIRECTV, DISH, Xfinity, Comcast or Spectrum. It now offers a no contract option. You can subscribe month to month and cancel whenever you want.
So if you’re looking to cut the cord, but still watch MLB games, you should consider whether its pros outweigh its cons.
Subscribers get a free year of HBO Max (usually $14.99 per month), and a free year of NBA League Pass Premium (usually $250).
The Choice bundle has a wide variety of sports channels including ACC Network, Big Ten Network, ESPN, ESPN2, regional NBC Sports and SEC Network.
Root Sports Northwest is only available in five states. It is broadcast throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska.
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, ACC Network, TNT, History and A&E.
And you don’t need to pay for a cable box.
AT&T TV works with Roku, Amazon Fire TV, iPhones, web browsers, tablets and Samsung Smart TVs.
If you do sign up, you should know that you have to choose the “no contract” option during the account setup process. It’s not automatic.
If you opt for a two year contract, then the price drops to $69.99 per month for the Choice plan.
Are Seattle Mariners games on ESPN+?
ESPN+ carries nationally broadcast MLB games on a daily basis, including some Seattle Mariners games.
ESPN+ costs $5.99 per month, and live streams MLB games daily. So it’s an inexpensive way to pick up nationally broadcast MLB games. You can sign up for ESPN+, and then activate your subscription within the ESPN app.
