  • ESPN+ won’t figure in as much in the shortened 2020 season as it has in past seasons, but it’s still got games you’ll want to check out.
  • Miss the 2019 season and fans in the stands? You can find those games archived on ESPN Plus.
  • ESPN+ can be streamed for just $4.99 a month, or you can bundle it with Hulu and Disney+ for as little as $12.99 a month.
  • ESPN+ is a great destination for all sports fans, not just baseball fans. If you love soccer, UFC, or college sports, you should already have ESPN Plus.

Stream MLB on ESPN Plus

ESPN+ is great, but it helps to know off the bat that it’s not a substitute for ESPN. It’s a supplement. That means you won’t be able to watch SportsCenter or Monday Night Football, for example, but you will be able to stream an almost unfathomable amount of live sports and original programming you won’t find elsewhere, including 20 exclusive UFC Fight Night events per year. (In fact, if you’re a UFC fan, you’ll be excited to know that you’ll get a free year of ESPN+ access if you order a UFC pay-per-view through the service, thanks to the partnership between the two companies.)

Launched in April 2018, ESPN+ is an extension of the ESPN site and app. Think of it as a key that unlocks special content. It has its own tab, but you’ll also notice the ESPN+ content sprinkled throughout the site and app. It’s marked with an “E+” logo in the upper left-hand corner (as seen below).

All of the MLB games available to stream on ESPN+ can also be viewed with a subscription to MLB.TV, which lets you watch every out-of-market MLB game.

You’ll also be able to unlock the entire 30 for 30 catalog. That alone is worth $4.99 per month.
