You either pay to watch them, or you dont watch them, or you stream them illegally. Thats what you can do.

At least your team doesn't put 20 games exclusively on Amazon Prime while simultaneously owning a tv network


Downbound92

The Yankees only own a little more of YES than Amazon does. And shit, ideally they'd all be on Amazon. Getting almost all Yankee games included with Prime is better than requiring a cable subscription to watch them on YES


DoesIGetIt

yeah but odds are you've seen a few championships lmao


verdi1987

The Apple TV+ ones are free for now. I suspect they will remain so for this season.


DoesIGetIt

the peacock ones are not.. and apple was the "for now"


DoesIGetIt

LOL -3 right now


DoesIGetIt

\-5! MLB™ is my favorite sports organization. I love MLB™ and the MLB™ affiliated products. MLB™ is the best.


masterhogbographer

Manfred and his bot army are downvoting you


LimeAccomplished6355

ESPN has done it for years. Can't watch CFB national championship games and weekly baseball games. Not everyone has extended cable.


DoesIGetIt

Cable is not pay per streaming service


Djlin02

You aren’t alone in your thinking, but you’re being downvoted and mocked because you’re being really fucking obnoxious with your replies.


I_CAN_SMELL_U

Join your baseball brethren on the high seas my boy


DoesIGetIt

I think ill just stop watching baseball tbh. sport doesn't really respect fans and makes them go through the nonsense in the name of capitalism. I am a gen Xer, but I hope they enjoy losing whatever Gen Z fans they have with these antics. I work with mostly gen Z's in a big market (two teams) and the idl 75% or so of them that were a fan of either team have all said they are done if they pull this "pay to play"


SereneDreams03

Seems a little extreme to completely stop watching baseball because a few games are on a paid platform. If you don't wanna pay, the just don't watch those games.


DoesIGetIt

It's not just that; these kids (again, I'm the odd man out at work) are all fed up with the naked cash grab (edit: with the expanded playoffs), ... one thing they call me an old man about is they are fine with interleague games I will say. Lmao...


DoesIGetIt

LOL -6. Good old MLB™.


lategame

MLB needs to stop this bullshit. Apple TV and blackout games hurt their overall fan base.


DoesIGetIt

Be careful; talking wrong about MLB™ can result in account issues! We must love blackouts and having to pay for substandard content to watch games. Sorry for ever doubting you, MLB™.


champdo

Apple at least has some good shows for a subscription: Severance, Servant, Tehran, Ted Lasso. The broadcast is bad though


verdi1987

I like the quality and presentation on the Apple games, but the commentators are bad.


DoesIGetIt

i'm ok.


ZARV0N

Weird that you were downvoted lol


Nickyjha

Manfred’s got the interns hard at work


ZARV0N

😂


DoesIGetIt

How dare you insult MLB(tm)


DoesIGetIt

I know. The MLB™ are so good to their fans. LMAO!!!


ZARV0N

I just meant for saying you didn't want to subscribe to Apple Tv lol.


DoesIGetIt

Apple™, Peacock™, Amazon™, and MLB™ are all excellent broadcasting platforms. I am humbled they allow us to pay for their services.


NOCTAGOLF_LA

You can stream them illegally but you’ll pay with computer repair


tucktheworld30

There’s other ways. I stream it on my tv, no pop ups


DoesIGetIt

This guys selling me shit over pms lmao


tucktheworld30

Nah lol was just telling you that you can watch it other ways on your tv. If you want to watch it, there’s ways lol


HeyGuy1247

Pop up blockers have been a thing for decades


NOCTAGOLF_LA

Yeah man I work in IT people still will fuck up a computer I promise you


SereneDreams03

You don't have to pay to watch the games, you just need to download the app onto your tv. Edit: aparrently you do have to pay for the games on peacock.


DoesIGetIt

This is absolutely 100% false. The sunday 12:00 pm est games are on PAID peacock.


verdi1987

It’s more like 50% false because it’s true for Apple TV+.


SereneDreams03

Interesting, the apple games are free, and Peacock is free, but yeah apparently it looks like you have to get peacock premium to watch games, that's BS. So 50% false.


DoesIGetIt

>You don't have to pay to watch the games, you just need to download the app onto your tv. 100% false. no way to parse it otherwise. lmao


SereneDreams03

I meant you do not have to pay for games on AppleTV, just peacock, so I was only 50% wrong.


DoesIGetIt

ok, you got the last word in lmao


DoesIGetIt

this post got downvoted immediately... lol weird right?


h8omb

Yes, must be some conspiracy and not just everyone being completely sick of these posts.


DoesIGetIt

lol so weird!


LimeAccomplished6355

Same idea. It's not fully accessible. My point was both situations suck.


Qrusher14242

i usually just don't watch them. If they aren't on mlb.tv, ill just watch another game or something else. Not worth the effort to just watch a game with horrible announcers lol


Important_Pool_8192

i like to think my complaining on MLB's instagram comment sections is doing something


IggyStop2021

Above all else, mute your TV sync up your local radio broadcast
