ESPN+ Baseball Game of the Day has 29 live games during the month of August.
ESPN+ is streaming one regular season game per day for the 2023 Major League Baseball season. A subscription to ESPN+ costs $9.99 per month.
Apple TV+ and Peacock now offer weekly MLB games. But only ESPN+ has daily games that are part of the national broadcast schedule.
MLB games on ESPN+ are subject to local blackout restrictions. But cord-cutters have a number of other options to watch in-market MLB games without cable. I’ll expand on that below.
