Where & How To Stream Padres Games in 2023


Posted in 2023 in


Baseball has always struggled between holding on to the past and evolving for the future. A great example of that is streaming games. San Diego Padres fans can’t always be at the game but don’t want to miss the action. And the fact remains that cable subscribership is plummeting. In 2023, for the first time, cord-cutters outnumber pay TV households.

Fortunately, it being 2023, there are plenty of modern ways to watch your favorite teams play without having to leave the comfort of your home. (and also by leaving your home and watching at a bar.) In this guide, we’ll show you where to stream baseball games live online and how to find the best streaming service platforms available.

Streaming Bally Sports San Diego

Bally Sports San Diego is the tv channel that carries the most Padres games. Which streaming service carries Bally Sports San Diego? The availability of channels changes each year due to contract and negotiations. The best bet for cordcutters looking to stream local Padres games in 2023 without cable is fuboTV.

fuboTV is currently offering a free 7-day trial.

The only other option for streaming Bally Sports San Diego is DirectTV Stream, once known as AT&T Stream. However the free trial is shorter than fuboTV and, with fees, the monthly cost is over $100/month.

Note: Hulu, Sling TV and YouTube.TV do not carry Bally Sports San Diego in 2023, citing an inability to negotiate an agreement on a deal. This is of course subject to change. Certainly all these executives are working hard representing the best interest of baseball fans and not their own corporate greed. So stay tuned.

Those streaming services do offer select national MLB games via coverage on channels like FOX, ESPN and TBS.

Streaming Padres games on the MLB App

The technology is there and the games are being broadcast on the MLB.TV app… but Padres games will be blacked out for the local market. Some local fans try using a VPN to circumvent blackouts by changing their IP so they can watch San Diego Padres on the MLB.TV app.

Do not confuse this with the standalone MLB Ballpark App for navigating your experience at the stadium.

If all this modern streaming technology is making your head fry, you can also go old school and listen on the Padres radio network.
