For local Seattle fans
fuboTV – best choice for Mariners baseball and Seattle sports
We picked Fubo as our top pick for Mariners fans because the platform carries Root Sports Northwest and offers a growing lineup of 4K programming, including the World Series, with the Fubo Elite package.
Root Sports Northwest carries Mariners baseball games, but conveniently also broadcasts these teams:
- Portland Trailblazers
- Seattle Kraken
- Portland Timbers
- Gonzaga basketball
- Big Sky Conference sports
- Seattle SeaWolves
Although Root Sports Northwest carries Seahawks commentary, you can’t watch actual NFL games on the channel. However, we did choose Fubo as our top pick for watching the Seattle Seahawks, so the platform is a great overall choice for Seattle sports fans who want to cut the cord and live stream their favorite teams.
As an added bonus, Fubo carries PAC-12 Network in the “Sports Lite” package, which is a must-have for watching Washington Huskies football.

You can watch the Mariners and Seahawks with DirecTV Stream’s “Choice” package.
The advantage of DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” despite the relatively high price tag, is the ability to watch the Mariner’s entire season, including the playoffs, with one streaming service. That, and DIRECTV STREAM now offers unlimited DVR so Mariners fans can record entire games to watch at their convenience. As a parent to two small babies, the ability to record day time games to DVR to watch after the kids are asleep is a big plus.
While we prefer the user experience for mobile on Fubo’s app, DIRECTV STREAM is fully compatible with Android and iOS.

If you don’t live in Seattle
Root Sports Northwest isn’t available outside of Washington and Oregon. If you live out-of-market and want to watch the Mariners, your only option is 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 Mariners games. If you want to follow just one team all summer, the rate drops to a one time annual fee of $109.99.
Adding MLB.TV through Fubo or ESPN+ is a better choice than Amazon which still has a limited sports lineup outside of Thursday Night Football.
When the Mariners are on national TV
When the Mariners appear on national TV in an exclusive broadcast, Root Sports Northwest will be blacked out. Below, we have included a guide which offers instructions for watching any national MLB game live without cable.
