- Hulu + Live TV
- AT&T TV
- YouTube TV
- Sling TV
Subscribers to Amazon Prime offers a MLB.TV package you can subscribe to with Prime Video Channels. This allows you to watch MLB.TV through the Prime Video app on more than 650 connected devices like Fire TV, compatible Smart TVs, tablets, and phones.
