How to Watch MLB.TV on Prime Video

What is MLB.TV? It’s the regular-season streaming package that you can subscribe to with Prime Video Channels. You’ll get live access to out-of-market feeds for all regular season MLB games that aren’t subject to regional, national, or another kind of blackout. Also, live regular season games included in your subscription will feature out-of-market teams only. Nationally televised games and local team games televised in your area including MLB playoff games, the World Series, and the All-Star Game will not be available for live streaming with MLB.TV.

Love golf? You can also watch the 2022 Masters Tournament on Prime Video via Paramount+ ($4.99 a month after a free weeklong trial).

The subscription to MLB.TV includes a free seven-day trial and you can cancel the subscription anytime but if you miss the pay window, you can cancel within three days of converting from the free tier to a paid membership in order to get a full refund. MLB.TV is $24.99 a month (after the free trial) for the All-Team Pass or $119.99 a year for the Single Team Pass. The fee is in addition to Amazon Prime, which is $14.99 a month after a free 30-day trial. Once you’re all set up, click here to manage channels in your Prime Video account.
