The Minnesota Twins shocked the world last year when they competed for a playoff spot the entire season after being projected to finish at the bottom of the American League Central division. The development of the young team has Twins fans even more pumped for the possibilities of a trip to the playoffs during the 2016 season. Want to watch the Minnesota Twins online?
Luckily, Twins fans will not have to get stuck in a long cable or satellite contract just to watch their favorite baseball team play. These are the four best ways to watch the Twins online without cable.
Sling TV is a full-fledged cable alternative. This online streaming service provides an excellent way to catch Twins live stream from home, without having to pay a fortune for cable. Not only that, you’ll also be able to watch a ton of great live TV with this service in addition to live Twins games. Sling works on a ton of devices, including streaming players, tablets, smartphones and computers.
Sling TV’s basic package is only $20 each month, and it lets Twins fans everywhere watch every MLB game broadcast on ESPN and TBS throughout the 2016 season. ESPN regularly plays just under 100 games each season, and TBS is planning on playing a game on Saturday afternoon for the final 13 weeks of the season. Exactly half of the playoff games leading up to the World Series are also only available on TBS. ESPN and TBS are the two most valuable channels that Sling TV offers in terms of baseball coverage, but there’s a lot more: the basic package includes 23 channels, including CNN, AMC, TNT, and many more. Minnesota area fans will also get FOX Sports North, which covers tons of Twins games! Read more details at our Sling TV review page.
Sling TV and T-Mobile are partnering together to give users of the cell phone service a 30% discount on their monthly fee for Sling TV. This brings down your price down to only $14. If you are not a T-Mobile subscriber, then you can take advantage of the 7-day trial or free Roku 2 box (with 3 months of Sling TV) deal right now.
PlayStation Vue lets you watch more games and channels than Sling TV, but it comes with a higher price and more restrictions. Vue currently offers over 50 channels for $30 each month in a basic plan that includes ESPN, Fox Sports 1 and TBS. You will also need a PlayStation gaming console, Amazon Fire Stick, iPad or Chromecast to view PlayStation Vue. Learn more about this new service in our review. Remember, the service is not exactly portable, and you can probably only use from your home – though it is still a good way to watch the Minnesota Twins online.
A Minnesota Twins live stream can be viewed on your computer or mobile device with a subscription to MLB.TV. There are currently two different subscription plans offered. It costs $104.99 to watch every game from every team, or you can just follow the Twins and save $25 on the annual subscription fee. Twins fans in Minnesota are unfortunately unable to take advantage of this deal for live games because of the MLB’s blackout rules. You can check here to see if the Twins will be blacked out in your area. All local fans can only watch the Minnesota Twins online 90 minutes after the end of each game on MLB.TV.
FOX is one of the biggest supporters of Major League Baseball, and you can watch all of their games for free by installing a digital antenna. There are a wide variety of digital antennas on the market today, but we recommend using the Mohu Leaf. If you pair this device with a Tablo DVR, then you can watch the Twins live on your smartphone when away from the house or skip the commercials by recording every game.
