The most important channels for Phillies fans

For in-market Phillies fans, the most important channel to have access to is NBC Sports Philadelphia, the regional sports network that carries most Phillies games. The good news for Phillies fans is there are several streaming services that carry NBC Sports Philly.

When the Phillies are on national TV, it will usually be on ESPN, FS1, TBS, FOX, or MLB Network, although Apple TV+ and Peacock have negotiated the rights to each stream a handful of exclusive MLB regular season games each year. When the Phillies are featured on a national broadcast, NBC Sports Philadelphia will be blacked out to protect TV contracts.

Streaming WTXF-TV, FOX 29 Philly

All of our top picks for live streaming Phillies baseball also carry FOX 29 Philadelphia, which is the station that will broadcast most Eagles NFL games during the regular season.

The best options for local Phillies fans


Although they raised prices recently, we recommend fuboTV here because they not only offer NBC Sports Philadelphia for watching the Phillies, but they are our top pick for the Philadelphia Eagles as well.

fuboTV allows subscribers to use DVR storage to automatically record a team’s entire season, which is a great feature for sports like MLB, which have over 100 regular season games.

Hulu + Live TV

If you don’t live in Philadelphia

If you don’t live in eastern Pennsylvania, southern NJ, or Delaware, you are an out-of-market Phillies fan and will need an MLB.TV subscription if you want to watch every game.

MLB.TV – watch 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 Phillies 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 sometimes

ESPN+ features one out-of-market MLB game every day during the regular season. This is a fun feature for baseball fans who want to see a wide array of teams, although it’s not possible to follow one team all season using ESPN+.
