There's a new documentary heading for ESPN this summer, and it's going to capture the world of baseball in 1998. We're going to watch 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer online, so let's go figure out what needs to be done.

Long Gone Summer looks back at the 1998 baseball season, with its highlights and lasting complications that came from it. Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa went head-to-head for the single-season home run record of 61 that had previously been set by Roger Maris close to 40 years before.

The race for 61 home runs was won and shattered easily that year with Maguire reaching 70 home runs. It's going to be a complicated story, and we cannot wait to see what happened behind the scenes exactly.

When and Where to Watch 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer?

The 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer documentary will be broadcast by ESPN on June 14th, starting at 9 PM ET.

How Can I Live Stream 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer?

If you want to watch 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer on ESPN, there are quite a few ways for you to do that. Watching TV online nowadays is super-easy to do because multiple live TV platforms were created specifically for this purpose. These days, you can watch your favorite events wherever you are when they start and use your mobile devices to do so. In fact, one of our favorite live TV platforms is Hulu, which has a single bundle of networks available. Start your free trial on Hulu now!

While the ESPN channel is part of the main bundle, you can also add any of the extra channel packs they have available, as well as premium networks that might interest you. We do have to note that when you subscribe to the Live TV service on Hulu, they also give you access to the On-Demand library, so basically have two platforms at the price of one. There are a ton of apps that you can download for Hulu, including for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Roku, and more. (Note: Hulu only works in the United States, so if you're traveling abroad, you will need a VPN to watch anything, so keep that in mind. Click here to find out all the steps you need to take.)

Other Ways to Watch 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer Online

Sling TV - We are now going to discuss a really great platform, which is Sling TV, a service that has three bundles to offer. However, ESPN is only present in two of these bundles, namely Orange and Orange + Blue. That said, we do have to mention there are some differences between the perks to get with one bundle rather than the other, mainly the fact that Orange subscribers can only watch content on one device at a time. In contrast, Orange + Blue subscribers get four simultaneous streams - which is quite a gap. Once your choice is made, you can add any of the extra channel packs you are interested in and all the available premium networks. Watch 3 Days Free on Sling TV Now!

YouTube TV - Another service that allows you to watch ESPN is YouTube TV, which has a single bundle of networks. You cannot add any channel packs here, but there are quite a few premium networks you will want to look into. The best part about YouTube TVs is that all subscribers get unlimited cloud DVR storage space. Moreover, they get access to three simultaneous streams at no additional cost.

How Can I Watch 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer When Traveling Outside of the United States?

If you happen to be traveling outside of the United States, there are some issues you need to take into account because live TV platforms and streaming services such as the ones we've been discussing are not accessible everywhere. Mainly when your IP address shows that you are not in the United States, your access immediately gets blocked, so you cannot watch anything. That being said, the answer is to change your IP address with a VPN so that you appear to be in the United States rather than wherever you are in reality. We recommend ExpressVPN, which is a really cool tool, with thousands of servers all over the world and some great privacy features thanks to the encryption products they deploy.

Here's how you can start your subscription on ExpressVPN and watch 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer from anywhere in the world:

Can I Watch 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer on the Network's Website?

If you want to watch this baseball documentary over on the ESPN website, that's going to be possible. The only thing you'll have to do to reach the live stream from the ESPN channel is to log in to an account using credentials from your TV provider and then to set up an account. The credentials are required to prove that you do pay for a TV subscription that includes ESPN. (Note: The ESPN live stream is also geo-blocked, so if you're going to log in to an account from abroad, you will still need a VPN. Click here for details.)

Can I Watch 30 for 30: Long Gone Summer Later on?

If you want to watch this documentary later, that's going to be possible because ESPN is quite likely to upload it to its website, so you can stream it when you want to. On the other hand, you might also want to consider the fact that you can schedule the live TV DVR to record it for you so that you can watch it whenever we have the time.
