A free subscription to MLB.TV could be just a few clicks call away – depending on your phone carrier.

MLB and T-Mobile announced the continuation of a juicy promotion available to T-Mobile customers, who can get complimentary streaming access to every game during the 2023 MLB season for those who take advantage of the deal. MLB and T-Mobile ran the same promotion in 2022.

MLB.TV, a streaming service that provides subscribers access to out-of-market games throughout the entire season, has proved a valuable resource to a wide array of baseball fans – especially those who live outside the TV market of their favorite team.

The easiest way to watch MLB games for free during the 2023 season is to take advantage of T-Mobile's MLB.TV promotion.

T-Mobile customers or anyone who switches their phone carrier to T-Mobile during MLB's opening week can redeem an offer for a complimentary 2023 subscription to the MLB.TV service.

Here's how to redeem the offer:

A year-long subscription to MLB.TV costs $149.99 for the 2023 season. The service allows users to stream out-of-market games but has restrictions and blackouts on some games broadcast nationally or in the same local TV market as the user.

MLB.TV also features a library of on-demand games and videos. Baseball fans can also stream one pre-selected game each day even without an MLB TV subscription.

MLB TV is not free to Amazon Prime customers. However, it is a package users can subscribe to with Prime Video Channels.

Singe-team packages, a subscription tier that only allows users to stream the out-of-marker games of one team, go for $129.99 via Prime. All-access subscriptions cost $24.99 per month.

Jim, before I answer, a little background on DIRECTV Stream for readers who are not familiar with it.

DIRECTV Stream, as opposed to DIRECTV, the satellite TV service, is a multi-channel, live streaming service that offers packages starting at $74.99 a month. (The service is now running a promotional offer with $10 off each of the first three months.)

While DIRECTV Stream is intended to be an alternative to DIRECTV, there are some major differences. For example, Stream does not require a contract to sign up while DIRECTV has a two-year agreement requirement for new customers. (DIRECTV also has a two-year price guarantee now, which DIRECTV Stream does not.)

But the streamer does not have as many channels as its satcaster sister or other sports packages including MLB Extra Innings. (In fact, no live streaming service has MLB Extra Innings; it’s a package designed specifically for cable, satellite and telco TV services.)

DIRECTV Stream also does not carry MLB.TV, the league’s online plan for out-of-market games. But once again, no live streamer carries the baseball package. YouTube TV, a DIRECTV Stream rival, used to carry MLB.TV as a separate add-on but lost the rights in a carriage dispute over the MLB Network.

But note that if you subscribe to DIRECTV Stream, you could still subscribe separately to MLB TV, which now costs $149.99. But you would need to watch the games on the MLB TV app, not the DIRECTV Stream app.
