How to watch the MLB World Series 2019: Live stream Houston Astros vs Washington Nationals online anywhere

The MLB World Series 2019 between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals is tied 3-3. The deciding Game 7 takes place tonight!

The MLB World Series 2019 between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals all comes down to this. The two words that American sports fans love to hear the most. Game 7!

The World Series has swung both ways. The Nationals got off to a commanding 2-0 series lead, before the Astros won the next three to put themselves one game away from their second World Series title in three years.

With everything to play for, the Nationals won last night’s game 7-2 at Minute Maid Park to force a deciding Game 7 that will take place at the same venue tonight.

This year’s MLB World Series is only the second one to feature two teams created since the expansion era of the 1960’s.

Despite not having the best start to the regular season, the Nationals ended the year with a 93-69 record, which put them in second place in the National League East and helped them qualify for the playoffs as a wild card team. They then defeated the Milwaukee Brewers and heavy-favourites Los Angeles Dodgers before sweeping the St Louis Cardinals in the National League Championship Series to make their first World Series in franchise history.

In comparison, the Astros finished their 2019 season with a 107-55 record, which was the best in the league. They then defeated the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Division Series. In the American League Championship Series that followed, they defeated one of the MLB’s most successful franchises, the New York Yankees, in six games as Jose Altuve sealed the series with a walk-off home run. This is the Houston Astros’ third World Series appearance and their second in three years, following their title win in 2017.

Pitching will play a vital role in the World Series, and it’s not surprising that both teams have some of the best pitchers in baseball.

How to watch the MLB World Series 2019 in the US

Being a sport that’s popular in America, it’s not surprising that Stateside viewers have the most number of ways to watch and live stream the MLB. The MLB World Series 2019 will be broadcast on Fox and you can live stream games on the Fox Sports apps, provided you’re a pay-TV subscriber.

Thankfully, Fox is available on a plethora of different subscription service bundles, so there are different ways to live stream the MLB World Series between the Astros and Nationals even if you don’t have pay-TV.

YouTube TV costs $50 a month and includes Fox. The same is the case for Hulu with Live TV which costs $45 a month, and AT&T TV Now’s Basic package which will set you back $50/month. Other options available to stream the best-of-seven game series include FuboTV ($55/month), Sling TV Blue ($25/month) and PlayStation Vue Access ($50/month).

How to watch the MLB World Series 2019 in the UK: BT Sport

Like the NFL and NBA, MLB is slowing gaining a fan following in the UK. British viewers keen to follow the Astros and Nationals in the MLB World Series will need to stay up late on game nights because every game starts at 1am UK time.

The only channel broadcasting the 2019 World Series in the UK is BT Sport – the home of UEFA football, including the Champions League and Europa League.

There are different ways to subscribe to BT Sport. For example, BT Sports and BT TV Broadband packages start from £40/month. Similarly, if you have Sky TV or TalkTalk TV, you can get all the BT Sport channels as an add-on from £25 a month.

How to watch the MLB World Series 2019: MLB Network

US sports have their own streaming services that you can subscribe to, and the MLB is no exception. As it has been doing across the regular and postseason, MLB.TV and its accompanying MLB At Bat app will broadcast live coverage of all the games for $24.99 – provided you subscribe to a participating pay-TV provider.

The service lets you choose whether you’d like to hear broadcast coverage from the home or away team and you can even choose from English or Spanish broadcasts. You can live stream the MLB World Series on Android, iOS, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and even gaming consoles, including the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

Unlike the NFL Game Pass and NBA League Pass which let UK viewers subscribe and watch, MLB.TV is only available to US viewers, so the only way to watch games from outside the US is to use a good VPN service (see section below).

How to watch the MLB World Series 2019 anywhere in the world: use a good VPN service

Fox, BT Sport and MLB.TV are all geo-blocked, meaning you won’t be able to access any of your accounts if you’re travelling outside the country unless you use a good VPN service. We think that everyone should use one because it also keeps all your browsing history private – from hackers, snoopers and even from your own ISP. There are tons of free and paid-for VPNs, but the only one we recommend wholeheartedly is ExpressVPN.
