Stream the Rest of MLB Season for Just $4 (it’s Free for College Students!)
If you’re a Major League Baseball fan, and I most definitely am, this is a great time of year. OK, not if you’re pulling for the Phillies. But if your favorite team is still in the hunt, every game from here on out is exciting and critical to its playoff hopes.
But what if you don’t live anywhere near your team? I’m a Minnesota Twins fan who’s happily transplanted to Tampa Bay. While that doesn’t mean I’ve abandoned my Twins, it does make it hard to see their games.
The coolest product out there to help in this situation is MLB.TV. It’s a streaming service that allows you to watch every single MLB game or, if you prefer, just your own team’s games.
If you haven’t tried it, now is the time because MLB.TV has one heck of a deal for the remainder of the season.
Watch the Rest of the Season on MLB.TV for Just $3.99… or Free!
You can now sign up to get MLB.TV’s premium package for just $3.99 for the rest of the year. That means you can watch every single MLB game for less than four bucks. At the beginning of the season, the rate for the full season was $112.99, so this is quite the deal.
If you’re a college student, the deal is even better. Thanks to a partnership with ID.me, college students can get the rest of the season on MLB.TV for free. Yep, not one cent of your beer… er, gas money, will go out the door.
What’s great about the premium package? If your team is in a blowout game and a scrolling headline tells you a stud pitcher is just three outs away from a perfect game, you can switch to that game. You can even choose whether you hear the home or away team’s announcers.
Most teams have a dozen or more games left on the regular-season schedule. MLB.TV says you can stream up to 190 games through the rest of the season, which is a little over two shiny pennies per game (or free if you’re still hitting the books).
Of course it’s more fun to go to the game, but that can get expensive. There are ways to head out to an MLB game on the cheap, but if you can stream it for next to nothing, how can you beat that?
