Quick Look: The MLB.TV Roku channel offers fans of Major League Baseball the opportunity to watch every out-of-market regular 2016 season game live, plus many Spring Training games (subject to blackouts).
On Roku, MLB.TV viewers can choose the Home or Away feed in HD-quality video, and can pause and rewind live game action. For both live and archived games you have the option to start from the beginning of a game or to jump to a specific inning. For live games already in progress, you have the option to join the live stream or start from the beginning of the game. (Unfortunately, more-advanced features that available on PC and mobile devices, such as in-game highlights and stats and Mosaic View, are only available online and, for some features, on mobile devices.)
To watch live or archived MLB.TV games on your Roku, you'll need the Premium subscription, not basic MLB.TV. To get started, install MLB.TV on your Roku using the link below, then click here to subscribe. Already an MLB.TV premium subscriber? Click here to link your Roku to your MLB.TV account.
Not a Premium subscriber? You may still find the MLB.TV Roku channel to be of use. Available in 2015, and hopefully back for 2016, you can check game status and results. MLB.TV also offers a free game of the day to registered users with free accounts. Just create a free account and login at mlb.com, then open MLB.TV on your Roku player, go to Settings, and login. The free game of the day will be available from the MLB.TV opening screen on your Roku - if it isn't blacked out in your area. A current listing of regular season games that will be nationally blacked out in the United States can be found here.
But remember, all games will be available as archives on your Roku and other connected devices. Just watch out for game spoilers before you have a chance to watch.
