It’s been over 30 years since the Brewers made a World Series appearance, but this year could the one. Unless you plan to attend every game in person, you can stream Milwaukee Brewers baseball games without cable this year and watch as the team tries to work its way towards this year’s MLB Pennant.

Below, we’ll explore your top 7 options to stream Brewers games while also cutting out the high cost of traditional cable.

Which Channels Can I Use to Watch Milwaukee Brewers Online Without Cable?

The Milwaukee Brewers will be playing 162 games during the regular season, the vast majority of which will be broadcast through the Fox Sports Wisconsin TV network. If you live in Wisconsin, Eastern Minnesota, the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Northwestern Illinois, or Iowa, you can get Fox Sports Wisconsin through one of several low-cost cord-cutting services.

A dozen Brewers games will be broadcast nationally, however, and to get those you’ll need access to:

  • MLB Network (2 games)
  • Fox Sports 1 (5 games)
  • ESPN (2 games)
  • Local Fox affiliate (3 games)

In this case, as well, cord-cutting services will offer most, if not all, of the channels you need to stream Brewers baseball games this year. Services like Sling TV and fuboTV provide access to nearly every game, while some additional services will feature every channel at a slightly higher cost (but still far cheaper than traditional cable).

Let’s take a closer look at your top 7 cord-cutting options for Brewers baseball.

FuboTV

Originally launched in 2015, fuboTV has been a go-to option for sports for a long time. Now, it’s a great option for Brewers fans as it will allow you to stream up to 160 Brewers games.

Channels and packages

You’ll have two package options with fuboTV: “fubo” and “fubo Extra”:

The lower-cost “fubo” package is all you’ll need to stream most Brewers games this year through fuboTV. That option will grant you access to Fox, ESPN, Fox Sports 1, and Fox Sports Wisconsin. The only channel you’ll miss out on will be the MLB Network, which thankfully only carries 2 nationally-televised Brewers games early in the season.

Features and extras

For those in love with features, fuboTV is a great option to consider. You’ll get a 30-hour cloud DVR, a 72-hour replay on most channels that won’t count against your DVR storage, and the option to stream on up to 2 devices at once.

Should you want to boost your DVR storage or simultaneous streaming, you can do so as well. A $5.99 per month add-on will get you an extra device stream, while a $9.99 per month add-on will get you a rather impressive 500-hour DVR.

fuboTV also has wide device coverage and functionality:

  • Living room devices: Android TV, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Roku
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: Fire TV, Roku TV and Android TV
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android and iOS
  • Game consoles: None
  • Desktop browsers: fuboTV recommends Chrome, but most web browsers will work

fuboTV has a 7-day free trial for new subscribers.

Sling TV

Also launched in 2015, Sling TV’s package of channels has only changed slightly since launch. At present, you’ll get almost everything you need to stream Milwaukee Brewers baseball games for just $40 per month.

Channels and packages

You can get Sling TV through one of three channel packages:

You can get Sling Blue for $25 per month, which features Fox-owned networks and carries local Fox affiliates, Fox Sports 1, and Fox Sports Wisconsin. That will get you the vast majority of Brewers games, minus a few. But you can also opt for Sling Orange + Blue, which will also net you 2 additional games broadcast through ESPN.

Features and extras

Sling TV’s low cost does mean it comes with a few limitations. You won’t get a DVR included with the package, but you can add a 50-hour cloud DVR for just $5 per month extra.

With Sling Blue, however, you’ll get 3 simultaneous streams per account, which is more than the industry average of just 2. If you opt for Sling Orange + Blue, just note that Sling Orange channels only allow for one stream per account, which will include ESPN.

Sling TV also has great device support and functionality:

  • Living room devices: Azulle Mini PC Sticks, Air TV Player, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku and Xiaomi Mi TV
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku TV and certain models from LG and Samsung
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Amazon Fire tablets, Android and iOS
  • Game consoles: Xbox One
  • Desktop browsers: Sling TV recommends Chrome, although other browsers will likely work as well

If you’re ready to give it a try, Sling TV offers a 7-day free trial period and provides discounts for pre-paying.

Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV is Hulu’s cord-cutting option for live TV fans, and at $44.99 per month, it’s a good option. You’ll get Fox Sports Wisconsin, Fox Sports 1, ESPN, and local Fox affiliates, giving you access to up to 160 Brewers games this year.

Channels and packages

Hulu has just one package of channels, but there are several pricing schemes. For $44.99 per month, you’ll get the standard package of 60+ channel, including those you need to stream Milwaukee Brewers baseball games.

However, the standard package comes with Hulu’s on-demand library, which carries ads on its videos. If you don’t want ads in the on-demand library, you can pay $50.99 per month. And if you don’t want the on-demand library at all, there’s a $43.99 per month Live TV Only option.

Features and extras

Hulu + Live TV has some of the best features for its cost. You’ll get a 50-hour cloud DVR and 2 simultaneous streams per account. You can also boost your features with separate add-ons.

The Unlimited Screens add-on costs $9.99 per month and lets you stream on as many devices as you want at home or up to 3 devices outside of your home network. And for more video storage, the $9.99 per month Enhanced DVR feature boosts your storage to 200 hours. You can combine both for $14.99 per month to save a bit of money.

Hulu + Live TV has fairly wide device support as well:

  • Living room devices: Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Roku
  • Smart TVs: Certain Samsung and LG televisions, as well as Android TV and Roku TV
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android and iOS
  • Game consoles: Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Xbox 360
  • Desktop browsers: Most browsers

If Hulu + Live TV sounds like a workable option, there’s a 7-day free trial.

DirecTV Now

DirecTV Now is one of just a few options that will allow you to stream every Milwaukee Brewers game without cable this year. It’ll cost you more than the other services to get it, but your cost will still be less than you would pay for traditional cable.

Channels and packages

There are 4 channel package tiers available through DirecTV Now:

  • Live a Little: 65+ channels / $40 per month
  • Just Right: 85+ channels / $55 per month
  • Go Big: 105+ channels / $65 per month
  • Gotta Have It: 125+ channels / $75 per month

For those Brewers fans who want (or need) to stream every game, the $55 per month “Just Right” package is your go-to option. That package carries ESPN, Fox Sports 1, MLB Network, and Fox Sports Wisconsin, giving you all 162 regular season games.

Features and extras

DirecTV Now offers a standard set of features. There’s a 20-hour cloud DVR that also has a 30-day time limit on videos, which is the most restrictive in the market. But you’ll get 2 simultaneous streams and a 72-hour rewind feature that won’t count against your DVR. You can also add a third stream for $5 per month extra.

AT&T-owned DirecTV Now also has fairly extensive device support:

  • Living room devices: Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Roku
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: Samsung and Amazon Fire TV
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android and iOS
  • Game consoles: None (Xbox One consoles “coming soon”)
  • Desktop browsers: Chrome and Safari browsers are recommended, although you may be able to use other browsers as well

You can give DirecTV Now a try with its 7-day free trial.

YouTube TV

One of the best cord-cutting services on the market, YouTube TV is a bit of a godsend for those who want to stream Milwaukee Brewers baseball games this year. You can get all 162 Brewers games this year if you live in the Fox Sports Wisconsin broadcast region.

Channels and packages

For $40 per month, YouTube TV will get you 60+ channels, including Fox Sports Wisconsin, Fox Sports 1, ESPN, MLB Network, and local Fox affiliates in most places. That means the potential to get every Brewers game so long as you can get Fox Sports Wisconsin where you live, or at the least, all 12 nationally-broadcast games.

Features and extras

YouTube TV’s features are second to none. You’ll get an extensive unlimited cloud DVR with a 9-month expiration date on videos, up to 3 simultaneous streams per account, and the option to create 6 user profiles. All 6 user profiles get their own unlimited cloud DVR as well.

As for device support, the only major limitation is that there is no native support for Amazon Fire TV devices or Amazon Fire tablets. Outside of that, YouTube TV has good support for streaming devices:

  • Living room devices: Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast and Roku (no Amazon Fire TV devices)
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: Certain models from HiSense, LG, Samsung and Sharp, as well as Android TV and Roku TV
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android and iOS
  • Game consoles: Xbox One
  • Desktop browsers: Chrome is recommended, although other browsers may also work

You can give YouTube TV a try free for 7 days.

PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue rounds off our list of services, but it’s a strong contender. It’s one of the only options that will give you 100 percent coverage for Milwaukee Brewers baseball games this season, but like DirecTV Now, it’ll cost you a bit more per month.

Channels and packages

There are 4 pricing and package tiers with PlayStation Vue:

  • Access: 45+ channels for $44.99 per month
  • Core: 70+ channels for $49.99 per month
  • Elite: 90+ channels for $59.99 per month
  • Ultra: 90+ channels for $79.99 per month, including premium networks (HBO, Showtime)

If you’re in the broadcast region for Fox Sports Milwaukee, the “Core” package will get you every Brewers game for the regular season. “Core” carries Fox Sports Milwaukee, ESPN, Fox Sports 1, MLB Network, and a local Fox affiliate, among many other channels.

PlayStation Vue is the only option on our list that lets you get Fox Sports Wisconsin even if you live outside of the broadcast region. The $10 per month Sports Pack add-on grants access to other Regional Sports Networks, although some blackout rules may still apply.

Features and extras

Features are the name of the game for PlayStation Vue. You’ll get a 28-day cloud DVR, which is short, but with unlimited video recording during that time.

You’ll also get a rather impressive 5 simultaneous device streams, which is the most of any other service, and the option to share your account with up to 9 other people. Each account user gets their own profile, settings, and cloud DVR.

PlayStation Vue works on PlayStation devices (obviously) but does not require you to have a PlayStation to use it. This service works on the following devices:

  • Living room devices: Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Roku
  • Smart TVs: Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Roku.
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android, iOS, and Amazon Fire tablets
  • Game consoles: PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4
  • Desktop browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Microsoft Edge are recommended

MLB.TV

For those who live outside of the Fox Sports Wisconsin broadcast region, MLB.TV is probably your best option to stream Milwaukee Brewers games. MLB.TV lets you purchase access to every team’s out-of-market games, or you can purchase access for a single team’s games.

Plans and coverage

There are two key channel packages (for US and Canadian residents):

  • All Teams: $118.99/year, or $24.99/month for every out-of-market game
  • Single Team: $91.99/year (about $8/month) for every out-of-market game for a single team of your choice

The “Single Team” subscription is the cheapest option and good if you only want Brewers games. However, the “All Teams” option is a great deal to get every out-of-market game for the year.

Blackout rules will apply if you’re in-network, so this is not a good option for Brewers fans who can access Fox Sports Wisconsin through one of the services above.

Features

MLB.TV has some great features. You can watch the action from the pitcher’s perspective, get in-game stats on the screen, stream in HD video, replay live TV, and more.

A large number of apps are also available:

  • Living room devices: MLB.TV app for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV Sticks and Roku.
  • Smart TVs: MLB.TV app for certain Samsung televisions, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Roku TV
  • Mobile devices and tablets: At Bat app for Android, iOS, and Amazon Fire tablets
  • Game consoles: MLB.TV app for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
  • Desktop browsers: Most browsers

Note that there is no free trial and no money-back guarantee with this service, so make sure you’re sure you want to use it before signing up.
