Baseball Games on TV or at Sports Bar

It appears that there are no channels in Switzerland offering MLB playoff games, nor planning to broadcast the World Series. (Please correct me if I am mistaken).

Are there any sports bars that will show the games that are played at a reasonable hour for us?

No need to watch, unless your a Dodgers fan cause they are going to win it all.

Re: Baseball Games on TV or at Sports Bar

I've been a happy user of MLB.tv for the past 6 or 7 years now, watching the Royals/Astros game on my PS4, couldn't ask for anything more.


But with the time difference, one really can't expect bars to be showing these games...Mets v. Dodgers starts around 3am...

Re: Baseball Games on TV or at Sports Bar

This time around I'm rooting for the Cubies... It's been forever.

BTW MLB has a special streaming offer.

$9.99 to the end of this season!
BUT
There is an automatic renewal connected with it, which you can (must) deactivate after the last World Series game if you don't want to pay $129 for the entire next season.

I have already watched a game this way and the quality is very good.

This time?

A Cubs fan is never a fan of opportunity. You have to endure it.

Re: Baseball Games on TV or at Sports Bar

I am a Twins fan 1st of all. But when they are out of the picture I go for my National League team the Cubs.

I even have a yearly bet with a Cubs fan buddy of mine. "Which teams sucks less, the Twins or the Cubs".

This year I buy him a beer.

Re: Baseball Games on TV or at Sports Bar

I happily watched a few innings of the Jays at Kennedy's. Of course after the football, and off when the bar closed.

Stars and Stripes in Glattpark has various streams available, and if they don't have your game, you can bring a link for a stream and they will play it.

I usually watch at home, getting HD stream links from reddit or google.

Re: Baseball Games on TV or at Sports Bar

Are there links to free sports streaming services on Reddit?

Re: Baseball Games on TV or at Sports Bar

If you go to the relevant sports subreddit, there's usually a post with a list of working link streams for the games that day.

Generally firstrowsports and the likeness, but a faster and more reliable than doing a google search.

Do note, most are on semi-legal hosting/streaming sites like all tv and movie streaming feeds.
