Watch SNY Online
Calling all Mets and UCONN fans—we’ve got the goods on how to watch SportsNet New York without cable. SNY is a local channel for the greater New York area, so make sure you live in the region, for starters. If you’re a Mets fan who lives out of market, though, don’t worry—just check out MLB.TV, which streams MLB games for fans living outside of New York.
Streaming SNY online is pretty easy when you consider only one streaming service offers it.
How to watch SNY
#1 fuboTV: Watch SNY straight from the fuboTV app
What we like about it: Watch directly from the fuboTV app
Drawbacks: No ESPN
Who it’s perfect for: In-market fans looking for the simplest option
If you live in the greater New York area, fuboTV is your best bet for watching SNY online. Check out the 7-day free trial.
Watch SNY and lots of other sports channels
Do you hate making decisions? Don’t worry—we all do. With fuboTV, there’s only one main channel package (fubo Premier) to choose from, so factor anxiety out of this decision. fubo Premier costs $19.99 for your first month and jumps to $44.99 a month after that. With it, you get over 70 channels, including SNY, NBCSN, the NFL Network, and your other local channels.
You’re probably wondering where ESPN is, and we had to bear the bad news, but fuboTV doesn’t currently carry ESPN. If you’re all about watching New York Mets or UCONN basketball games, then you can probably live without ESPN. But if it’s local NBA, MLB, or NFL games you’re after, we recommend going with another streaming service with more channel coverage, like PlayStation Vue.
What sports do I get with fuboTV?
fuboTV may not be the best streaming service out there, but what it lacks in features, it makes up in heart. And by heart we mean unique channel offerings.
Sure, you don’t get ESPN, but you do get the Pac-12 Network, NBA TV, and beIN Sports. Plus you get 30 hours of cloud DVR storage included in your subscription to record events happening on all those interesting channels.
You can expect HD streaming quality with fuboTV as long as you have an internet connection that gets at least 15 Mbps. Generally, you won’t run into too many streaming quality issues or instances of the system glitching out, but we can’t promise that nothing quirky will happen from time to time.
fuboTV device compatibility
You can watch SNY on Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, and a few other major streaming devices.
#2 Wildcard: Watching SNY via the NBCSports app
What we like about it: More options for streaming services
Drawbacks: Can’t watch SNY directly through a new streaming service
Who it’s perfect for: Fans who aren’t in love with fuboTV
If you can’t get over the whole no ESPN thing, we’ve got a workaround for you to watch SNY online. SportsNet New York partnered with NBCSports to stream its content online. It sounds great, but there are caveats. For one, you must have a subscription to a cable service or one of the following streaming services to use the app:
Check out our stand-alone reviews for each of those services— one of them might be a better fit for you than fuboTV, and like we said, all of them will let you watch SportsNet by authenticating the NBCSports app.
How to stream SNY with the NBC Sports app
Once you’ve signed up for a streaming service, you can download the NBC Sports app from your iOS or Android device, or you can watch SNY online here. Enter your streaming service account credentials when prompted, and you should be streaming the Mets in no time.
Do I have to live in the New York area to stream SNY with the NBC Sports app?
Yes, you have to live in the New York area, or you will be greeted with a blackout notification after trying to log in. If you’re looking to stream the Mets outside of New York, stick with MLB TV.
