Streaming, Radio, and TV information

Tonight, the Twins play on MLB network. If you happen to have cable or satellite TV, you probably get that channel, even if you normally don’t. Almost every major TV provider is including MLB network as a free trial this weekend. That is the easy way.

If, on the other hand, you get your TV over the air, or by streaming, well, you have options. Youtube TV offers a one-week free trial, and allows you to watch the MLB network. Sling TV, which is owned by Dish Network, also offers a one week free trial, and carries MLB Network, although they are currently in a contract dispute which means they are not carrying FS1. Playstation Vue is also an option here, if you happen to have a playstation.

The Twins will possibly be back on MLB network on Monday, the seventh. The rest of the games, however, will be on FS1, which is basically Fox Sports’ ans7wer to ESPN. There is a pretty decent chance your cable or satellite company has it, unless you happen to be a Dish Network subscriber, due to that contract dispute we mentioned. If you happen to need a streaming option for FS1, there are several as well—Youtube TV still carries it, as does Playstation VUE. Sling does not, but another player is an option—Hulu’s live TV package also has FS1, and has a week free as well.

The full broadcast schedule is below.

  • Friday, 10/4, 6:07 PM (central) — MLB Network
  • Saturday, 10/5, 4:07 PM (central) —FS1
  • Monday, 10/7, 7:40 PM (central) —FS1 (or possibly MLB Network)
  • Tuesday, 10/8, 7:07 PM (central) —FS1
  • Thursday, 10/10, 4:07 PM (central) —FS1

All of these games are being carried on the radio by TIBN, and also by the nationwide ESPN Radio network.
