The most important channels for Padres fans

Most of the Padres regular season is broadcast locally on Bally Sports San Diego.

For national TV games, ESPN, FS1, FOX, MLB Network, and TBS will be the channels to look for. MLB fans also need to be aware of the new “streaming exclusive games” on Apple TV+ and Peacock. When the Padres are featured on a nationally televised broadcast, or on one of the new streaming exclusive games, Bally Sports San Diego will be blacked out.

If you live in San Diego

DirecTV Stream

Due to disputes over carriage fees, DirecTV Stream is the only live TV streaming provider that offers Bally Sports RSNs, Bally Sports San Diego included. This means that if you want to watch the Padres online, DirecTV Stream’s “Choice” package is currently the only option.

The good news is that DirecTV Stream is a good choice for streaming NFL games, including Chargers games, and sports fans can also pick up a lot of LA pro sports on Bally Sports SoCal & West, as well as on Spectrum SportsNet.

If you don’t live in San Diego

Outside of San Diego, out-of-market fans can watch the Padres on MLB.TV.

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 San Diego Padres 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 out-of-market baseball

During the regular season, ESPN+ carries one out-of-market regular season game every day. While the random nature of these broadcasts doesn’t allow fans in San Diego to follow along with the Padres, it is a fun way to watch a diverse lineup of MLB games.
