Now that the Diamondbacks ditched Bally Sports Arizona, and estimated 5.6 million households will be able to watch the team (a 506% increase from seasons past). MLB.TV has no blackout restrictions in Phoenix, which allows Diamondbacks fans to watch games without a cable or streaming package. For full coverage of national and playoff games, DIRECTV STREAM or Fubo are both good choices.

For fans in Arizona

With the exception of the streaming exclusive MLB games, which require separate apps, DirecTV Stream carries ESPN, FOX, FS1, TBS, and MLB Network for watching the Diamondbacks baseball when they are on national TV.


Outside of Arizona

Outside of Arizona, New Mexico, parts of Utah, and Southern Nevada, MLB fans will be considered out-of-market for the Diamondbacks and won’t have access to Bally Sports Arizona. For these fans, the best bet is to purchase an MLB.TV package.

MLB.TV – watch every Diamondbacks game

MLB.TV is the premium out-of-market option for MLB fans. With MLB.TV fans can circumvent the regional broadcast rules and watch any game they like, including Diamondbacks games. If you want to follow just one team all summer, the rate drops to a one time annual fee of $109.99.


ESPN+ – watch out-of-market baseball

ESPN+ plays one out-of-market MLB game every day during the regular season. You can’t follow the Diamondbacks season this way, but you can watch a fun lineup of out-of-market baseball games, which will sometimes include the Diamondbacks.

Do the Diamondbacks play outside?

Due to the extreme summer heat in Phoenix that is only getting worse due to climate change, Chase Field, the Diamondbacks’ home stadium has a retractable roof which can be opened in the fall but kept closed in the sweltering summer months.

Can I watch the Diamondbacks on fuboTV?

Yes, you can watch in-market Diamondbacks games on fuboTV. New for 2023, fuboTV will carry Bally Sports regional sports networks, including Bally Sports Arizona for watching the Diamondbacks.
