Major League Baseball is now offering the MLB.TV package of out-of-market games for half price in a special promotion that runs from today through Tuesday, May 21. The price is normally $139.99 but is now available for $69.99.

The plan’s single-team option, which normally costs $119.99, is now available for $59.99. The single-team package enables you to follow a single team without paying the full price for all games and all teams (minus your local teams.).

For $69.99, a MLB.TV subscriber can now watch every remaining 2024 out-of-market regular season game on 400 supported devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, computers, smart phones and tablets, among others. MLB.TV also includes thousands of minor league games through the First Pitch or MiLB apps.

Local blackouts still apply in the MLB TV package. By MLB TV rules, you cannot watch the team or teams in your local market with a MLB.TV subscription. You can determine which teams would be blacked out in your zip code here.

However, despite the rules, some MLB TV subscribers use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to skirt the blackouts and the league has admitted to the TV Answer Man that it has never taken legal action against those who do.
