No matter where you live, learn how to watch the Yankees with just a WiFi connection.
You can live stream Yankees baseball on a host of different devices, including Roku, Samsung Smart TVs, iPhone, and Amazon Fire TVs, to name just a few. For the 2022 season, DIRECTV STREAM’s “Choice” package is the only live TV streaming service that carries the YES Network, which is the channel that broadcasts most of the Yankees regular season. DIRECTV STREAM also carries WNYW-TV FOX 5 NYC for watching the Giants. If you live outside of the New York area and want to watch the Yankees, MLB.TV is the best option.

For in-market Yankees fans in New York, CT, northern NJ, and parts of PA, the Yes Network, the regional sports network owned by the Yankees, Amazon, Sinclair Broadcast Group, and others, is your best bet. The Yes Network carries most regular season Yankees action as well as the WNBA’s New York Liberty, the Brooklyn Nets, and New York City FC soccer.
I’ve also added ESPN, FOX, FS1, and TBS, which along with Apple TV+ and Peacock, are the channels and services that carry nationally televised MLB games that reach every market. Since the Yankees are a popular team with a national brand, Yankees fans will get to see the team on national TV often.

Currently, the only way to stream the Yes Network is through DIRECTV STREAM’s “Choice” package.
DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” also carries MSG for Knicks coverage, which is an added bonus if your sports interests go beyond Yankees baseball.
If you don’t live in New York
For MLB fans who live out-of-market from their favorite team, MLB.TV allows subscribers to circumvent the regional regular season viewing rules, and tune into whichever team they wish, including the Yankees.
During the MLB regular season, ESPN+ carries one out-of-market game per day, which gives Yankees fans the chance to see the Pinstripes intermittently. While you can’t follow along with the Yankees all season, an ESPN+ subscription saves sports fans almost $1,000 per year over DIRECTV STREAM.
