There are a number of ways to watch Baltimore Orioles games live without a cable TV or satellite package during the 2023 season.
But watching home games without cable requires a subscription to a live TV streaming service that carries the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN).
Nationally televised games during the regular season in 2023 are on FOX, ESPN, FS1, TBS and MLB Network. A few post-season games air on ABC.
How to watch Baltimore Orioles Games Live
The Baltimore Orioles broadcast most of their regular-season games at home on MASN. The regional sports network has exclusive rights to in-market Baltimore Orioles games.
MASN is only carried by one streaming service, DIRECTV STREAM.
Where can I watch MASN?
MASN is available to pay-TV subscribers in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area.
The network is generally available in Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, eastern and central North Carolina, south central Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
DIRECTV STREAM has a 5-day free trial. You can watch every home game this season on DIRECTV STREAM if you live in the broadcast area of MASN. National broadcast games are on ESPN, FOX, FS1, and TNT.
|Hulu Live TV||No||Yes|
Apple TV+ is streaming two live baseball games on Friday nights during the 2023 Major League Baseball season. The Friday night games are part of the National Broadcast schedule. A subscription to Apple+ is required and costs $6.99 per month after a free 7-day trial.
NBC’s Peacock is streaming exclusive Sunday morning games.
You can watch these games on any Smart TV or streaming device that supports the two apps. This marks the second year in a row for Apple and Peacock streaming MLB games.
Cord-cutters can watch some national broadcast games for free using a TV antenna. I started streaming MLB games in 2016 back when PlayStation Vue began carrying NESN in its channel lineup.
This guide aims to give you a comprehensive look at how to watch Orioles games without cable TV for the 2023 season.
