The good news for Braves fans is that it is possible to watch the Braves live online without cable on a host of different devices, including Roku, Android, iPhone, Samsung Smart TVs, and Amazon products. Our top pick for live streaming the Braves is DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” since it is the only live TV streaming package that carries Bally Sports Southeast, the regional sports network that broadcasts much of the Brave’s regular season in Atlanta.

The best option for local Braves fans
When the Braves are on national TV, almost all of the live TV streaming services will carry the game. However, for most of the regular season action, Bally Sports South and Southeast will be the regional sports networks (RSNs) that carry the bulk of Braves games. The Bally Sports RSNs are owned by Sinclair Broadcasting, and only one live TV streaming provider, DirecTV Stream, has reached terms with Sinclair on a carriage agreement to carry the Bally Sports RSNs. This means that DirecTV Stream can charge more for its “Choice” package, which is the subscription tier it requires to access its RSN library. As such, Braves fans will be paying over $1,000 per year to get Braves games online.
The good news is that DirecTV Stream is a “one stop shop” for all your sports streaming needs. Depending on where you’re located, Bally Sports Southeast will get you access to:
- Atlanta Hawks basketball
- Atlanta United FC
- Charlotte Hornets basketball
- Memphis Grizzlies basketball
- Carolina Hurricanes hockey
It is also possible to live stream the NFL and the Atlanta Falcons on WAGA-TV, FOX in Atlanta on DirecTV Stream.

If you live outside of Atlanta
While it’s a bummer that only DirecTV Stream carries Bally Sports RSNs, the good news for Braves fans is that Bally Sports South and Southeast have large MLB viewing territories because Charlotte and Memphis don’t have MLB teams. This means that fans across the southeast will be able to watch the Braves regular season. However, if you live outside of the Bally Sports Southeast viewing territory, paying for an out-of-market package will be required. If you want to watch every Braves game, MLB.TV is the only option. If you are content getting the Braves on occasion, ESPN+ broadcasts one out-of-market MLB game every day during the regular season, and the Braves, as a team with a national following will appear more than their fair share in this game.
MLB.TV – every 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 Atlanta Braves games. If you want to follow just one team all summer, the rate drops to a one time annual fee of $109.99.
ESPN+ – games every so often
When the Braves are on national TV
When the Braves are on an exclusive national broadcast, Bally Sports Southeast will be blacked out. Here is how to watch the Braves when they don’t appear on the local RSN.
