MLB World Series 2023 logo

The 2023 World Series is here, and we have a fun and unexpected matchup on our hands. The upstart Arizona Diamondbacks, winners of just 84 games in the regular season, have remade their roster with trade acquisitions and late-season rookie call-ups, and they look like an incredibly dangerous team after finishing off the Philadelphia Phillies in a thrilling seven-game NLCS. The American League champs are the Texas Rangers, who have made the most of their Wild-Card playoff spot with a red-hot run that saw them steamroll the 101-win Orioles and then beat the defending champion (and Texas' own hated in-state rival) Houston Astros.

You're not going to want to miss a game of this series. And here's the thing: You don't need cable to watch the World Series. Check out your options below, and get ready to cheer!

How to Watch the World Series Online and Over the Air Without Cable

Luckily, baseball fans won’t have to search high and low to find some lengthy list of networks just to find the World Series. They only need one: FOX. 

Thanks to the proliferation of modern streaming services, it’s easier than ever to find live TV channels without a cable plan. Streaming services offer subscribers the same channels they can find on live TV without a lengthy service contract. In addition, most streaming platforms include mobile app access, as well, meaning you can get your hands on all your favorite live TV content on the go. 

If you’re searching for one specific network, you may have to shop around since every streaming service can’t offer every channel. Luckily, FOX is one of the easiest networks to get your hands on. 

Here are some of the best ways to watch the World Series:

Can I watch the World Series on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast?

Using any of the services listed above means you can watch the World Series on any device, anywhere in your home. Whether you’re watching the game from the bathroom on your phone or hunkered down in the living room in front of the big screen, streaming devices from Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast will be there to help.

    What off air antenna do I need

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      That depends on where you are and how far away your local stations are. For most of us, an indoor antenna with a range of around 40 miles should be plenty, but your mileage may vary if you’re in a more rural area. I’d start by typing your zip code into a tool like this one: just to see how far your local stations are. Once you know that, you’ll know what kind of range you’ll need in an antenna. As for brands, that doesn’t matter too much — these are pretty simple devices, and they’re all pretty similar. I like the look of the ones that Mohu makes, but you’ll also find plenty of good options from AntennasDirect, RCA, and others.

        I live in central Denver and could not get the Series over the air (I can get all the major networks). I could if I paid. It’s a sad state of affairs

  2. Arthur Smith says:

    I miss the old days when tv was free. All you needed was a TV, and electricity.

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      This is still the case! You can get a TV antenna and watch the whole World Series for free on FOX.

        I have 2 antennas and still can’t get FOX!

      2. Anonymous says:

    I would love to see NFL and MLB on antenna TV/Fox I cannot afford the monthly fees for streaming or cable but I am a diehard fan of these games. Please please get them on antenna TV permanently. Perhaps ABC, CBS, NBC could have a slice of the pie also.

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      Every World Series game will be on FOX! You can also catch NFL games with your antenna on Sundays (FOX and CBS during the day, then NBC for Sunday Night Football).

      1. James says:

        Unfortunately, that isn’t true for those who live in rural areas. The antenna to reach a distant Fox transmitter is cost prohibitive and generally unreliable.

        Dish and Fox should be ashamed of themselves for squabbling during the World Series. It’s always the American consumer who gets screwed.

  5. JSC says:

    Watching Game 1 live on FoxNow on my Roku. I live about 70-80 miles from nearest TV stations, in the mountains. Go Braves.

    1. Jay says:

      Me too. Watching game 2 on FoxNow

  6. Phyllis says:

    I have ROKU. I have tried everything to watch the World Series but nothing works! I have antennas…..still can’t get FOX. Every other app you have to have a TV provider! If I had a TV provider, then I wouldn’t need an app! I don’t get it!
