How to watch the World Series if you don’t have cable

The Los Angeles Dodgers are back in the World Series for the first time since 1988. The Houston Astros are returning to the World Series for only the second time in franchise history — and the team’s first as a member of the American League. The Dodgers won 104 games this year on the strength of having baseball’s best pitcher, Clayton Kershaw, and an offense led by rookie phenom Cody Bellinger and Justin Turner and his giant, red beard.

The Astros won 101 games during the regular season and have a dominant lefty of their own in Dallas Keuchel and are led by a tiny shortstop with a big bat in the 5’6″ Jose Altuve.

The best-of-seven series starts in Los Angeles before moving to Houston for games 3, 4 and 5. All games start just past 8:00p.m. ET.

* – if necessary Fox[1] will broadcast the games nationally, but you don’t need a TV in order to watch. Here’s how you can stream the Series.

Sling TV

Sling TV[2]‘s cheap, £20-a-month Blue plan includes Fox, but you must live in a market where Sling TV offers a live, local feed of Fox and just on-demand content.

Check out this Sling TV support page[3] to see the available live channels in your area. Sling TV offers a free, seven-day trial.

PlayStation Vue

Like Sling TV, Sony’s streaming TV service is a cable TV alternative that doesn’t require a contract and features a 7-day free trial. PlayStation Vue[4] is available nationwide, but live programming is still available only in select markets, so you may want to use the free trial to ensure you get live streaming on Fox in your area. Sony doesn’t offer a list its channel lineup by market, but Cord Cutter News[5] keeps tabs on which markets offer live, local feeds of the networks, including Fox.

If you want to sign up for a PlayStation Vue plan for the World Series, then the Access plan for £40 a month is the cheapest option that includes Fox. To sign up for PlayStation Vue, you no longer need a PlayStation 3[6] (£109.00 at Amazon.com[7]) or a PlayStation 4 console. In addition to the PS3 and PS4, supported devices include Amazon Fire TV devices, Roku streaming devices and Google Chromecast[8] (£41.99 at Walmart[9]) devices.

DirectTV Now

Direct TV Now[10]‘s £35-a-month package includes Fox and there is a 7-day free trial.

The usual caveat applies: Check the channel lineup[11] in your area to make sure you can watch your local TV stations live.

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV[12] costs £40 a month and includes Fox. The first month is free, but you’ll need to check to see which live channels Hulu offers in your area[13].

YouTube TV

YouTube TV[14] costs £35 a month and offers live, local feeds of the major networks, including Fox. There’s a 30-day free trial.

If you live in a market where you can get YouTube TV, then you likely get a live feed of Fox, but there are exceptions. Get the details about YouTube TV’s available networks here[15].

MLB.com At Bat app

The MLB.com At Bat app (available for iOS[16], Android and Kindle Fire) is great for watching out-of-market baseball games during the regular season, but it’s less useful for tuning into baseball’s postseason because you not only need to prove you are a cable TV subscriber, but you must also be a subscriber to a participating pay TV provider. The list is short: Arvig, AT&T/DirecTV, Brighthouse, Buckeye, Cox, Dish, Fubo TV, Optimum, Suddenlink, TimeWarner, Verizon, WOW!

If you are a subscriber to one of the above pay TV providers, then you can proceed with the £24.99 Postseason Package[17]. To sweeten the deal, the Postseason Package includes spring training games next year.

Fox Sports Go app

Another option if you are a cable subscriber is the Fox Sports Go app[18] — maybe you want to watch baseball on a screen other than your TV. Unlike the MLB.com At Bat, you can watch the World Series for free — well, for no more than you’re already paying for cable.

The Fox Sports Go app works with iOS devices, Android devices and the Amazon[19] Kindle Fire as well as with Apple TV[20] (£179.00 at Apple[21]), Android TV[22], Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast, Roku and Xbox.

You can also access Fox Sports Go from a computer.

Essential PH-1 Already $200 Off, Early Adopter Credit Offered

The Essential PH-1 is already permanently discounted by £200 less than two months after the smartphone from Andy Rubin’s startup first started shipping to consumers. The Palo Alto, California-based company described its discount as an attempt to make its flagship product and services available to more users. Presumably due to the fact that Essential significantly cut down on the price of the PH-1 so early into its promised lifespan, the company also announced a “Friends & Family Code” worth £200 which early adopters who already purchased its device at full price are able to put toward financing another PH-1 or the Essential 360 Camera mod for the handset on the firm’s official website.

Anyone who bought the Essential PH-1 before October 22nd is eligible to receive the coupon by filling out the form available below, with the startup noting that the offer will only be live until November 15th. The Essential 360 Camera is regularly priced at £199 and is currently even available at £179 from Essential’s website, meaning you can essentially exchange the promo code for a free mod. The wording of the company’s announcement suggests that the same coupon cannot be used for purchasing a two-year Essential Extended Care plan which is priced at £99 and offered alongside the device, though that may simply be because the warranty itself isn’t sold on its own.

The same discount is already live on Amazon for the Black Moon variant of the Essential PH-1, though the Pure White one is presently listed at £599, i.e. only £100 off. The company’s early discount was announced shortly after reports that the Essential PH-1 isn’t doing particularly well have emerged, with some industry trackers like BayStreet estimating that the device is underperforming even in the context of a niche product from a Silicon Valley startup and has only sold approximately 5,000 units in its first month on the market. An early and permanent 28.5 percent discount adds more credence to the possibility that the Essential PH-1 had a disappointing commercial debut, although the company unsurprisingly didn’t reflect on the phone’s performance while announcing its price drop.

The startup previously promised to deliver numerous new mods for the Essential PH-1, in addition to bringing the bezel-free Android flagship to other markets like Europe and Japan.
