Amazon Prime is now offering U.S. members an option to subscribe to MLB.TV and catch regular season, out-of-market baseball games both live and on-demand through Prime’s streaming platform.
This access is a great value for cord-cutting sports fans, and it’s available to stream the 2022 season.
Is Prime required to sign up for MLB.TV?
Yes, you must have an active Prime membership in order to sign up for MLB.TV.
Does MLB.TV offer a free trial?
You can sample Amazon’s MLB.TV subscription with a free, seven-day trial, after which the service costs $24.99 per month (or $59.99 for the year). It’s the same price as subscribing directly from MLB.TV, but as a Prime user, your subscription will integrate seamlessly into Prime Video.
All you have to do is add the channel to your Prime Video app and stream it on any compatible device. Watch at home or on the go, so you never miss another game.
As one of the hundreds of à la carte Amazon Prime Video channels, MLB.TV doesn’t require extra passwords, special settings or cable access. Just pick and pay for the channels you want, and cancel at any time.
What are the benefits of adding MLB.TV through Prime?
When you access MLB.TV through Prime, you’ll also get to use the exclusive Prime Video X-Ray feature. With Prime Video X-Ray, a click of your remote lets you see live stats, team and player details, and play-by-play information, all in real-time while you watch the game.
MLB.TV joins Amazon’s extensive roster of other live and on-demand sports channels, so it can serve as a good depot to catch up on all available games when (and if) they return. Prime members can also access pay-per-view fights and other sporting events.
Live sports remain one of the most compelling reasons to keep cable. With Amazon continuing to eat up that market share, it’ll be interesting to see how subscription rates develop in the future.
