Sling TV Channels

Sling Blue, which costs $25/month, comes with FS1 and FS2, TBS, NFL Network, and a few other sports channels. Sling Orange comes with ESPN and a few other sports networks. Unfortunately, Sling no longer has Fox Sports Detroit, so you will miss out on most Tigers games if you choose this service. We recommend you go with one of the other picks on our list.

Platform support for Sling TV is also really good. You can stream on your Android and iOS devices, as well as your web browser, as well as Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, and select LG and Samsung smart TVs. Learn more here.

Sling TV has a different simultaneous streaming policy depending on which package you choose. Sling Blue lets you stream on 3 devices, while Sling Orange only lets you stream on a single device. Learn more here.

Sling TV DVR

You don’t get a free DVR with Sling TV. You’ll need to pay $5/month for a 50-hour cloud DVR, which is unfortunate, but not too pricey. Sling TV also offers a 72-hour rewind feature on select channels, even if you don’t have a DVR. Learn more here

Sling TV On-Demand Library

AT&T TV Now is the new name of DirecTV Now. It’s AT&T’s attempt to keep cord-cutters who are fleeing from sky-high cable bills. Let’s see if it’s a good way to watch the Detroit Tigers without cable now.

AT&T TV Now Pricing and Packages

AT&T TV Now offers a total of six primary packages, as follows:

Watch the Detroit Tigers on MLB.TV

All of the above options are the best way to watch The Detroit Tigers without cable if you live in Detroit or an area that gets Fox Sports Detroit. But what if you are not in the Detroit Tigers market, and can’t get Fox Sports Detroit?

If you don’t live in an area where Tigers games are broadcast, your best option is definitely MLB.TV. With this service, you can watch every out-of-market Detroit Tigers game for $92/year, or you can watch out-of-market games for all MLB teams for $25/month, or $119/year.

Note, however, that if a Detroit Tigers game is in your market – for example, you live in Kansas City, and the Kansas City Royals are playing the Detroit Tigers – it will be blacked out, and you will not be able to watch it until 90 minutes after it has aired, when the replay will be available on MLB.TV.

So, if you don’t live in Detroit, don’t worry! You can still watch the Detroit Tigers without cable by using MLB.TV.

What Channels Do I Need to Watch the Detroit Tigers?

The Detroit Tigers, like most MLB teams, have a contract with local Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) to carry their games.

In this case, you’ll need Fox Sports Detroit to watch the Detroit Tigers. The vast majority of games will be televised exclusively on Fox Sports Detroit in Michigan.

There are some exceptions. Some Detroit Tigers games will be aired on MLB Network, YES Network, Fox Sports 1, and ESPN. However, only six Detroit Tigers games will be broadcast nationally this year, so as long as you can get a streaming service with Fox Sports RSNs in your area, you’ll be pretty much covered when it comes to watching the Detroit Tigers without cable.
