As a kid who grew up in Detroit, I know first hand how important watching sports is to most Detroiters. The good news for Tigers baseball fans is you can stream the action from Comerica Park live online without cable TV. Although there are three options to watch the Detroit Tigers live online, our top pick for 2024 is fuboTV.

Today’s game

Our software lists the upcoming TV schedule with streaming options below.

This team does not have a televised game scheduled in the next two weeks.

Important channels

The old FOX Sports Detroit is now Bally Sports Detroit, and that is the channel that Tigers fans will need in order to watch most of the team’s regular season games. Conveniently, Bally Sports Detroit also carries Red Wings and Pistons games, but you cannot watch the Detroit Lions on Bally Sports Detroit.

When the Tigers are on national TV, MLB fans in Detroit will also want access to ESPN, FOX, FS1, TBS, and Apple TV+ and Peacock if they would like to watch the combined 36 exclusive national games these platforms will now broadcast on Friday nights, and Sunday mornings, during the regular season.

For locals

Fubo carries Bally Sports Detroit which allows Tigers fans to watch most regular season games from home, or their phone. The platform also carries all the channels needed to watch the Wolverines and Spartans, plus the Lions.

DirecTV Stream’s “Choice” package gets you Bally Sports Detroit which means in-market broadcasts of regular season Tigers, Red Wings, and Pistons action. You can also get WJBK, FOX 2 Detroit on DirecTV Stream to watch the Lions.

Outside of Detroit

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 Detroit Tigers games. If you want to follow just one team all summer, the rate drops to a one time annual fee of $109.99. Rather than buying MLB.TV on Amazon Prime, which is a sports dead-end, we recommend adding MLB.TV to a YouTube TV account.

National TV

When the Tigers are featured on an exclusive national broadcast, like ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, the game will be blacked out on Bally Sports Detroit. Use this guide to find the Tigers when they are on national TV.

Can I watch the Tigers on FOX Sports Detroit?

The old FOX Sports Detroit has been rebranded as Bally Sports Detroit. Different name, same programming, but technically, no, you can no longer watch the Tigers on FOX Sports Detroit.
