Here’s How to Watch the World Series Without Cable

The World Series between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians kicks off tonight and it will be one for the books. The Cubs will be trying to smash a 108 year championship drought while Cleveland will try to become the second city in the history of sports to win the NBA title and the World Series. It will be the first World Series in which both teams have more than a 50 year drought.

With all that on the line, you don’t want to miss it. But without cable, you could be sitting at home worrying that you’re going to miss Game 1. Fortunately, we’ve consolidated all the different ways you can watch the Fall Classic on a single list. Check them out below and put on your rally caps:

Streaming Devices

If you have a Playstation console, a Roku device, or an Amazon Fire stick, you can get the live TV channels in the click of a button. You’ll have easy access to any channel (FS1) that is playing the games with the ease of live TV. If you don’t already own these devices with their live TV applications, you can sign up now for approximately $40. It’ll be worth it to see this epic matchup.

Fox Sports Go

If you have a streaming device that doesn’t have live TV built into the package, fear not! The Fox Sports Go app has been great about providing a live feed of the games with limited interruptions. Even when the WIFI is poor, the signal is merely distorted rather than stopped, so you can at least listen to two of the oldest teams in baseball go at it.

Old School Antenna

Yes, this option will likely come with some frizzled reception and undeniable frustration. But if you don’t have a streaming device or live TV, it’s kind of the only option. So bust out the ol’ rabbit ears and tune your screen to the nearest FOX channel you can find. You’ll get to watch the game the same way Cubs fans watched the 1945 World Series. With the exception of technicolor.


You don’t have to be in Cleveland or Chicago to enjoy the game at a nearby bar. Cubs fans travel better than any fanbase in the world, and everybody that loves LeBron is likely pulling for the Tribe. Take your lazy butt to a nearby tavern, bar, or saloon, order an Old Style and watch a World Series that will be talked about for years to come.
