    None MA residents; How are you going to watch the Red Sox in 2020

    For many years, I watched the Red Sox on Directv Extra Innings. For the last several years, I have received the package complimentary as part of being a Red Sox season ticket holder. This year I am on my own. How to others outside MA watch the games?

    Dish extra innings.
    For so many years, DIRECTTV was it.
    Then I tried the internet mlb network, but streamed through my son's old playstation.
    It was cumbersome, & I didn't like switching back & forth.
    Now, Dish has Extra Innings, & Dish seems to have a better deal all around. Switch & get a deal?
    I always work them for more free crap when I switch.

    Extra Innings is definitely the easiest, & my life is about ease for the small shit in life.

    I'm probably going to go with Extra Innings through my cable provider. It's a first time for me.

    i was Extra Innings thru Directv since 1999. this winter i finally gave Directv the boot and use YouTube TV for my TV viewing. I will be using MLB.tv app to watch Red Sox games. I hear you can do a 1 team purchase for ~$100. that is most likely what i will do this year.

    I was also DirectTv since 1999 too until I got the complimentary MLBTV from the Red Sox. I notice that single team option for $93. I might go for that since I will still get the Yankees and Mets on DirectTv local package. That covers about 80% of my viewing.

    That is a new option. It is a very attractive option. The streaming has been pretty — slower than Direct Tv and cable, but not too bad.

    I just illegally stream the games online through reddit, discord or wherever I can find a reliable stream. As long as you have Adblock and proper software, the risk is minimal.

    I have a $10. a month APK on my Firestick that provides 2938 feeds.

    I get all the sports networks from around the world. This includes MLBTV and every game that is broadcast. I am in Massachusetts and it would cost me over $150. a month to subscribe to cable with NESN. Did that shit for far too long. I also watch most games high as balls.
    "Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'" RIP Mike.


    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    for years I was able to pirate the games from Dish, but they finally locked us out after a dozen years or so. Our house now is all streaming services, I pay by the month to MLB and stream it on either Hulu or Prime or straight from the MLB. The MLB Stream seems to work better at night for some reason, then during day games, so I usually go with the Prime feed or Hulu.
