How to Watch and Stream Game 3 of the World Series Live Online for Free—Without Cable

 

Going into the 2019 World Series, many people (including several oddsmakers) expected a clean sweep from the Houston Astros. But as the Fall Classic prepares for Game 3, it’s the underdog Washington Nationals who are firmly in charge.

With a solid win in Game One and a 12-3 shellacking of the Astros in Game Two, the Nationals move to their home field Friday, in hopes of securing their first World Series victory in front of their fan base.

Aníbal Sánchez will start Game Three for the Nationals, facing off against Zack Greinke for the Astros. Game Four’s starting pitchers are still up in the air, with both teams taking a wait and see approach to where things stand after Game Three.

It has been an exciting series so far, but there’s still a lot to come.

What time does Game 3 between the Nationals and Astros start?

The game begins at 8:07 p.m. ET on Fox.

How can I watch the 2019 World Series for free—even if I don’t have cable?

The best way to watch any sort of network programming for free on a big screen is with a good HD antenna. This year, the World Series is being broadcast on Fox, meaning you’ve got a good chance of capturing the game over the air, which costs nothing beyond the equipment prices. To ensure you’re getting the most reliable signal, you’ll want to test the antenna in multiple locations in your home.

Can I stream the 2019 World Series live online if I don’t have a cable subscription?

You’ve got lots of online choices if you won’t be near a TV set before the first pitch. First, if you do have a cable subscription, the game is being streamed live on the Fox Sports Go app. (You can also try logging into Fox.com or use the Fox Now app.)

If you’re a cord cutter and don’t have a cable or satellite subscription, there are several another methods that will let you watch the game. Here are a few suggestions.

Locast.org: This free service lets you watch local broadcast channels with no monthly fees or contracts. The hiccup is: It’s only available in certain parts of the country.

PlayStation Vue: The free trial is 5 days. Subscription packages start at $50 per month.

Hulu with Live TV: You can try the service free for a week. Once that’s up, you’ll pay $45 per month.

YouTube TV: After a seven day trial, you can expect monthly charges of $50.

Fubo TV: This sports-focused cord cutting service carries Fox in most markets. There’s a seven-day free trial, followed by monthly charges of $55.

Does Major League Baseball offer any viewing options to watch the World Series?

In a sense. MLB.TV offers every post season game, including archived broadcasts of the playoffs, so you can relive the Astros’ dramatic clenching of the pennant as often as you’d like.

There’s no free trial, but for $24.99, you can watch (or listen to) this year’s World Series games. And, as a bonus, the league is also throwing in all of the 2020 Spring Training games for free. If you’d like to subscribe to the full regular season, that will run you $115.99 (or $24.99 per month).
