Watch With Streaming Services
The best way to stream the World Series without cable is to use a live TV streaming service that carries FOX. Here are four top options to consider:
fuboTV – Offers a 7-day free trial, then $69.99/month. An all-sports streaming service with 100+ channels.
Sling TV – Currently 50% off your first month. Blue package has FOX and is regularly $35/month.
Hulu + Live TV – 7-day free trial, then $69.99/month. 75+ channel package with FOX.
YouTube TV – 5-day free trial, then $64.99/month. 85+ channels including FOX.
All of these services can be used to watch the World Series live on tons of supported devices:
- Fire TV Stick and Fire TV
- Apple TV
- iPhone and Android phones
- Smart TVs
- Web browsers
By signing up and starting your free trial just before the World Series begins, you can stream a good portion or even the entire series for free before having to pay.
For example, Sling TV is currently offering new users 50% off their first month which brings the regular $35 Blue package down to just $17.50 to stream FOX. If you time it right, you could potentially watch the entire World Series for just $17.50 with Sling!

No matter which streaming service you choose, you‘ll have live World Series games on FOX along with tons of other great channels for entertainment after baseball season wraps up.
Use the FOX Sports App
Don‘t want to pay for a streaming service? If you already have cable or a live TV streaming subscription with FOX, you can watch the World Series through the FOX Sports app instead.
The FOX Sports app is available for iPhone, Android, Fire TV, Roku, Xbox, Apple TV, and Roku.
To use it, you‘ll need to select your TV provider when prompted and log in with your cable or streaming service credentials. As long as your subscription includes FOX, you‘ll be able to stream World Series games live or on-demand.
Here are step-by-step instructions to get set up:
- Download and open the FOX Sports app on your device
- Tap on the settings gear icon in the top left corner
- Select "Sign In To Your TV Provider"
- Choose your pay TV provider from the list
- Sign in with your username and password credentials
- Return to the FOX Sports app home screen and you‘ll now see a live feed of FOX!
This method gives you another flexible option to stream the World Series, especially when on-the-go.
Try an OTA TV Antenna
Another way to watch FOX free is with an over-the-air (OTA) TV antenna. As long as you‘re within range of FOX‘s broadcast signal, an antenna can pull the channel in for free in full HD quality.
Indoor antennas like the Mohu Leaf work well for areas up to 30 miles from broadcast towers while outdoor/attic mounted antennas can pull in signals up to 80+ miles away.
Check a tool like AntennaWeb.org to see what FOX channels are available in your area. Make sure to position your antenna properly to get the most channels. You‘ll plug the antenna into your TV and scan for channels just like cable.
The one-time cost of an antenna will pay for itself extremely quickly compared to expensive cable bills. And no subscriptions, contracts, or fees!
Listen Live on ESPN or Fox Sports Radio
Don‘t have the ability to watch but still want to follow the World Series live? You can listen to every game on the radio!
The World Series radio broadcasts will air on ESPN Radio and Fox Sports Radio.
ESPN Radio will have Dan Shulman, Chris Singleton, and Eduardo Perez announcing the games while Fox Sports Radio will feature Kenny Albert, John Smoltz, and Tom Verducci.
You can stream both ESPN Radio and Fox Sports Radio live through apps like TuneIn Radio and iHeartRadio. This allows you to listen free on your phone, computer, or tablet no matter where you are.
While not as immersive as watching, listening to baseball on the radio is a fun throwback way to follow along with all World Series action.
