How to Watch MLB All-Star Game 2019 Online Without Cable – Get Ready for the Stars

By Gabriela Vatu / May 14, 2019

Baseball fans have all the fun from March to October, especially during the summer, when the All-Star Game is on. So, if you're looking to upgrade this year and watch the All-Star Game online, we have you covered.

Also known as the Midsummer Classic, this is the annual professional baseball game sanctioned by the MLB. The players come from the American League and the National League and they're selected by fans for starting fielders, by managers for pitchers, and by managers and players for reserved.

The game marks a symbolic halfway point in the MLB season, with no other games scheduled in the days ahead of the All-Star game to save some energy for the players.

The 2019 event will be the 90th MLB All-Star Game and it will be hosted by the Cleveland Indians and played on the Progressive Field. This will be the sixth game hosted by Cleveland, although it's the first time it will happen in the past 22 years. The Indians will be the team to have hosted the All-Star Game the most frequently. Up until 2019, it was a four-way tie between the Indians, Pittsburg Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals, and Cincinnati Reds.

The new baseball season starts on March 20 and ends on September 29. So, the All-Star Game is scheduled for July 9, 2019.

The broadcasting rights for MLB games are split between Fox Sports, ESPN, and TBS. The All-Star game, however, goes to Fox Sports, a long-time broadcaster of this particular event.

Also on Fox Sports, you'll find the first eight weeks of Saturday Night baseball games ahead of the All-Star game. Then, Fox will televise Saturday afternoon games for the final four weeks of the season. The World Series also goes to Fox.

How to Watch MLB All-Star Game 2019 Online?

It has become easier than ever to watch TV online and one of the best features is the fact that you get to enjoy this wherever you may be. Well, almost "wherever you may be" because licensing deals to prevent these networks from allowing broadcasts to take place outside of the US. So, if you pay for a live TV subscription, for instance, you'll find that you're unable to watch if you travel abroad. Well, this problem is easy to solve since these websites know your location by looking at your IP address, which is super easy to change. In fact, all you'll need is to subscribe to a VPN service, and you're good to go. Let's see what you need to do.

Note: We must also make a separate note here because FOX Sports runs in various supported markets. If you do not live in such a market, you can use the same VPN steps we discussed and simply change the location where you appear to be. Thus, if you pick a server in New York City, for instance, you'll get to watch the FOX Sports channel in that location.
