With its last World Series victory in 1991, Minnesota Twins fans will be just as eager as always to see the team make it all the way this year. If you’re hoping to watch Twins games this season, cutting the cord is going to be your cheapest, best option. This guide will show you your top options to watch Minnesota Twins online without cable.

We’ve found 7 great options to get both nationally and regionally-broadcast Twins games this season. Let’s explore these in more detail.

Where Can I Watch Minnesota Twins Online Without Cable?

If you’re a Minnesota Twins fan, we hope you’re in the market for its regional sports network. Of the games the Twins will be playing this year, only 4 will be broadcast nationally: two on ESPN and two on the MLB Network. On the other hand, 154 of the team’s games will be broadcast on Fox Sports North.

Fox Sports North serves Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and South Dakota, so if you live in those states, you’ll want a service that carries Fox Sports North at a minimum, and at a maximum, FSN, ESPN, and MLB Network. A few cord-cutting options do carry all three.

If you live outside of the Fox Sports North broadcast region, you still have options, however. Let’s explore your top options to get Minnesota Twins games this year.

FuboTV

fuboTV has been serving up sports streams at a low cost since 2015. At present, you can get up 80+ channels through fuboTV in most areas, including Fox Sports North for those in the broadcast region.

Channels and packages

fuboTV offers two packages to subscribers: “fubo” and “fubo Extra”.

Price$44.99/mo.$49.99+$17.99/mo.$19.99/mo.
Channels75+90+15+5+
Simultaneous Streams2222
Fire TV SupportYesYesYesYes
Roku SupportYesYesYesYes
Sign Up 7-DAY FREE TRIAL7-DAY FREE TRIAL7-DAY FREE TRIAL7-DAY FREE TRIAL

For Twins fans, the lower-cost “fubo” package is all you need to get Fox Sports North. Unfortunately, fuboTV carries neither ESPN nor MLB Network, so you’ll miss out on the nationally-broadcast games if you opt for this service. That said, you’ll still get the vast majority of Twins games.

Features and extras

So what’s fuboTV’s appeal if there’s no ESPN or MLB TV? The features! This service offers a nicely-sized 30-hour cloud DVR without expiration dates. You can also upgrade that to a rather hefty 500 hours with a $9.99 add-on.

The service also lets you stream on up to two devices at once, which can also be upgraded to 3 devices with a $5.99 per month add-on. Additionally, there’s a 72-hour rewind feature on most channels that lets you watch most games and TV shows you’ve missed within three days and doesn’t use up your DVR storage.

fuboTV works with a large number of devices and operating systems as well:

  • 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

The company has a 7-day free trial going for new subscribers.

Sling TV

One of the oldest cord-cutting options on the market, Sling TV is currently one of the best deals for Twins fans. It’ll also get you Fox Sports North and ESPN, meaning you’ll get almost every Minnesota Twins game without cable.

Channels and packages

Sling TV offers two core streaming packages:

Sling Blue comes in at $25 per month and features Fox-owned networks, including Fox Sports North. Meanwhile, Sling Orange features Disney-owned networks, including ESPN. You can opt for Sling Blue if you want to save money, or go with Sling Orange + Blue for $40 per month, which combines both packages and gets you those 2 additional games through ESPN. (And if you’re reading this page in April, you may want to go directly for Sling Blue, as the ESPN-covered national games both occur in March.)

Features and extras

Sling TV’s low cost compared to the other services on our list is a reflection of one thing: No included DVR. With Sling TV, you’ll need to purchase the 50-hour DVR separately for $5 per month.

However, Sling Blue will grant you 3 device streams per account, which is more than the industry average. The only limitation will be your ESPN and other Sling Orange channels, which only offer 1 device stream per account.

As one of the oldest services on the market, Sling TV’s device and app support is fairly extensive:

  • 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

You can give Sling TV a try with its 7-day free trial period.

 

Hulu + Live TV

Hulu’s Live TV service is still fairly new but has managed to amass nearly 2 million users within a year and a half. You’ll get Fox Sports North and ESPN through this cord-cutting option.

Channels and packages

Hulu + Live TV is a great option if you want both live TV and access to Hulu’s extensive on-demand library and original content. You’ll pay $44.99 per month, and your channel coverage includes Fox Sports Network and ESPN, among several dozen other channels, as well as access to Hulu’s on-demand service.

If you want Live TV only, that’ll cost you $43.99 per month, which is hardly much of a discount, so it makes sense for most folks to sign up for the Live TV + on-demand package. Note as well that Hulu’s on-demand library will have ads, which can be removed if you sign up for its $50.99 Hulu + Live TV option.

Features and extras

For the money, Hulu + Live TV is a bit of a steal. You’ll get 2 simultaneous streams per account, which is average, but you’ll also get a 50-hour cloud DVR, putting this service on an equivalent footing with Sling TV, but with the addition of more channels in the package, and Hulu’s exclusive on-demand library.

If you want to upgrade your features a bit, Hulu two different add-ons, both of which are $9.99 per month. The Unlimited Screens add-on will let you watch on 3 devices outside of your home network, and on as many devices as you want that are connected to your home’s network. For more storage space, the Enhanced DVR add-on will boost you up to 200 hours. You can combine both add-ons for $14.99 per month.

Hulu’s invested a good amount of effort into wide device support:

  • 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

Hulu + Live TV is available with a 7-day free trial.

YouTube TV

If you’re hoping to watch Minnesota Twins online without cable, say hello to YouTube TV. This service is one of few that offers all three networks carrying Twins games this year.  

Channels and packages

At just $40 per month, YouTube TV offers 60+ channels, including Fox Sports North, ESPN, and MLB Network. That’s the widest coverage available for Twins fans. You’ll be able to watch every single game this season, all without a pricey cable package.

Features and extras

YouTube TV has some of the best features on the market for cord-cutting services. You’ll get an extensive 9-month cloud DVR with unlimited storage space, 3 simultaneous streams, and the option to have up to 6 users on one account. Additionally, each profile user gets their own cloud DVR storage.

With the exception of Amazon Fire devices, YouTube TV has you covered for most popular device options:

  • 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

There’s currently a 7-day free trial available with YouTube TV.

DirecTV Now

Like YouTube TV, DirecTV Now is one of a few options that carries all three networks you need to watch every Twins game this season. However, the price might be a bit high for some cord-cutters.

Channels and packages

DirecTV Now has several package options to new subscribers:

  • 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

Twins fans will need to opt for the $55 per month “Just Right” package from DirecTV Now. That comes with ESPN, Fox Sports North, and MLB Network, alongside over 80 other news, entertainment and sports channels.

Features and extras

For the price, DirecTV Now’s features are a bit lackluster. You’ll get just 2 device streams per account, and a very limited 20-hour cloud DVR with a 30-day time limit on your recorded videos. Thankfully, there is a 72-hour rewind feature that lets you watch most channels content within 3 days without using your DVR storage. However, that hardly makes up for the limited DVR.

This AT&T-owned streaming service does have really good device support, however:

  • 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 try DirecTV Now with a 7-day free trial.

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 Minnesota Twins baseball games this season, but like DirecTV Now, it’ll cost you a bit more per month.

Channels and packages

PlayStation Vue has a very similar pricing package to DirecTV Now:

  • 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)

Twins fans will want to choose the “Core” package to get 70+ channels, including Fox Sports North, ESPN, and MLB Network.

Uniquely, you may be able to use PlayStation Vue and get some regional Twins games even if you don’t live in the Fox Sports North region. PlayStation Vue is the only service on our list that offers Fox Sports North out of network through its Sports Pack add-on. However, there is no mention of what, if any, Twins games you can get if you’re outside of the region, as blackout rules may still apply. You’ll need to contact Sony or Fox Sports North directly for more information.

Features and extras

PlayStation Vue has some of the best features for the price you pay. The 28-day cloud DVR offers a relatively short expiration date on your videos, but it’s unlimited, meaning you can record as much as you want during that time. You can also create 10 user profiles, all of which get their own DVR storage.

Additionally, PlayStation Vue subscribers get 5 simultaneous streams per account, the most of any service without paying an additional fee.

Despite the name, you don’t need a PlayStation console to use PlayStation Vue. In fact, device support is pretty extensive:

  • 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

You can give PlayStation Vue a try with its 5-day free trial period.

MLB.TV

For those who want to watch Minnesota Twins online without cable, but don’t live in any of the states that receive Fox Sports North, there’s still hope. MLB.TV is your answer to get Twins games and any other teams’ games that you can’t get through a regional sports network.

Plans and coverage

US and Canadian baseball fans have two package options through MLB.TV:

  • 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

“Single Team” will get you one team you want to follow, while “All Teams” is good if you want to watch more than one teams’ games. Note that with MLB.TV, all nationally-televised games are blacked out, but with only 4 games broadcast nationally this year for the Twins, that’s not a huge problem. You can easily sign up for one of the above services with a free trial to get access to those games you might otherwise miss.

Features

Although a standalone service, MLB.TV is still packed with great features. There’s instant replay, in-game stats on the screen, play-by-play action from the pitcher’s perspective, and more.

Device support is also good with this service:

  • 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

Importantly, you’ll want to make sure that you’re absolutely certain MLB.TV is the option for you before signing up. Unlike the cord-cutting services on the rest of the list, MLB.TV offers no free trial, and no money-back guarantee, either.
