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

We know the World Series is on FOX, but that's only half the battle. The question remains: how do we watch FOX without cable?

Thanks to the advances in modern streaming services, finding particular live TV channels without cable is easier than ever. Streaming services let users pick and choose the channels they want and won't lock them into a lengthy service contract. Many streaming services also come equipped with mobile apps, so you can have access to all your favorite content on the go.

Not every service offers access to every network, however, so users might have to do a little shopping to find all the content they want. Here are the best ways to watch the World Series:

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

With the services above, you can watch the World Series on all kinds of devices, from your smartphone to your big-screen TV. Whether you have a Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast, you'll be able to catch this year's World Series with your favorite device.

    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:

        Nor all areas can get stuff with indoor antennas. We cannot get any of the major networks

      3. J heath says:

        not! and I’m in Central Denver!

  3. Di 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!
