TV Answer Man, or should I say, Swanni, the O’s are playing on Peacock on Sunday. Now that they are winning ball games, can you explain the details for watching it on Peacock? — Frankie, Bowie, Maryland.
Frankie, the NBC-owned Peacock streaming service will offer 18 Major League Baseball games this season on Sunday mornings, including today’s (July 10) matchup between the Los Angeles Angels and Baltimore Orioles at 12:05 p.m. ET from Camden Yards in Baltimore.
Unlike Apple TV+’s Friday night MLB streaming doubleheaders, Peacock is requiring fans to subscribe to one of its two Premium plans (starts at $4.99 a month) to watch the games. (Apple has promised to stream the games for free at least through July.)
If you don’t subscribe, there will be no other way to watch the Angels-Orioles game, or any of the remaining games on Peacock’s schedule. Since they are Peacock exclusives, they will not be available on any other service or channel, including NBC, MLB TV, MLB Extra Innings, or the teams’ regional sports channels such as MASN, the TV home of the Orioles, or Bally Sports West, the TV home of the Angels.
And, you will have to subscribe to a Peacock Premium plan. (Unless you have Cox, Charter or Comcast which include a free Peacock Premium subscription with its video service.).
Frankie, hope that helps. Happy viewing and stay safe!
