The Detroit Tigers are an MLB team that plays in the AL Central Division. 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. The bad news, is there is only one option to watch the Detroit Tigers live online, and that is DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.”

The most important channels for Tigers fans

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.
