How to Watch Little League World Series 2019 Online: Live Stream Without Cable

By Gabriela Vatu / May 22, 2019

As the youngest players are prepping up for the big event, you should find ways to watch the Little League World Series online.

The annual baseball tournament is geared for kids aged 10 to 12 years old, and it's one of the most exciting sports events featuring kids.

Unlike other sports events in the United States where "world" is thrown in the name, this one actually does feature teams from across the world. The event was founded in 1947 and it was initially a US-only affair, but that changed over the years. The most recent champions come from Honolulu, Hawai'i, but Taiwan continues to have the most titles.

The dates of the events in the 2019 Little League World Series will soon become public and we'll make sure to update the article, along with the list of participants when the information is available.

The Little League World Series takes place between August 15th and August 25th in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. This will be the 73rd edition of the tournament. As soon as the information regarding the events that are to take place becomes available, we'll make sure to update it for you.

The Little League World Series is to be broadcast by ESPN and ABC, so we're going to have to look for platforms that can deliver these channels. Thankfully, they're networks that are quite popular with viewers, so they're popular with streaming platforms too.

First up on our list, we have one of the most versatile platforms we've seen thus far - Sling TV. There are three bundles you can start off with here - Orange ($25/mo), Blue ($25/mo), and Orange + Blue ($40/mo) -, as well as loads of channel packs grouped by interest, and premium networks. You can find ESPN, as well as ESPN 2 and ESPN 3 in the Orange and Orange + Blue bundles. There is no ABC, however, so you'll have to do with these.

In case you'll miss any of the games, it might be best for you to get the 50 hours of cloud DVR offered by Sling TV for $5 per month, so you can record them all. When it comes to watching content on multiple devices at the same time, with Orange you'll only get one screen, but you can get access to four simultaneous streams with Orange + Blue.

Hulu is another great option and, on top of access to the full video-on-demand platform, you can get access to the dozens of TV channels for $44.99 per month. You can also add several premium channels, like HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and Starz. The list of channels they provide users with features ABC, as well as ESPN and ESPN 2. That means you'll be able to enjoy loads of Little League World Series games.

Hulu with Live TV subscribers can enjoy 50 hours of cloud DVR space, which is great because you don't have to pay anything extra for it, as you do with Sling TV, for instance. On the other hand, you can pay $14.99 per month to expand to 200 hours of cloud DVR space. You are also allowed to watch on up two devices at once, but you can expand to unlimited screens by paying $14.99 per month. Read our Hulu review for more details.

Up next, we have YouTube TV, which is a great platform that offers a single bundle of channels, making for a rather interesting situation as you have no alternatives - if you don't like it, you'll just have to pass. The monthly subscription costs $49.99 per month, which is quite a good price considering how many channels they offer and the perks of the platform. The channel list includes ABC, as well as ESPN and ESPN 2, so you can enjoy them all, along with all the games from the Little League World Series.

YouTube TV offers a pretty good deal when it comes to cloud DVR - unlimited storage space and recordings you can keep for up to nine months. Also, the platform allows users to watch on up to three screens simultaneously. Read TechNadu's YouTube TV review for all the details you need.

5. DirecTV Now

Visit AT&T TV Now

We have DirecTV Now next, which is a platform that features seven bundles. Two of these are new, namely Plus and Max, while the other five have been around for a while, but they received new names - Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas - and new price tags that are double than they used to be. If you need more content, you can add any of the two packs with Spanish channels, or the three international packs, or even the premium networks. You'll find that ABC is present in all seven bundles, while ESPN makes it in six of the seven bundles, although it is replaced with ESPN Deportes in Optimo Mas.

As far as DVR storage space goes, DirecTV Now offers 20 hours. The downside of this platform is that you can't upgrade the storage space in any way, so you'll be stuck with those 20 hours until they decide to improve the situation. DirecTV Now also offers users the possibility to watch on two screens at the same time, but you can add another screen for $5 per month. TechNadu has a detailed DirecTV Now review that holds all the details of this platform.
