Why can't I watch MLB Network online through my Comcast account away from home?

Frequent Visitor

Why can't I watch MLB Network online through my Comcast account away from home?

I just simply want to watch MLB Network on my computer or my phone while at work.  All of the following providers allow online access to MLB Network, so I don't see why Comcast has been having trouble for years getting a deal done.

• AT&T U-verse
• Bright House Networks
• Cablevision/Optimum
• Cox Communications
• DIRECTV
• DISH
• Time Warner Cable
• Verizon FiOS

Any chance I can get an exact answer and response from an Official Employee of Xfinity?

I'm jumping in, but without much information, unfortunately. Our internal document on MLB only states:

 

  • MLB EXTRA INNINGS does not include a subscription to MLB.tv this season

 

I suspect some type of impass in negotiations but I'm not privy to that information. I expect that if we had the rights, we'd make it available but I'm speculating. I'll pass your inquiry to another team and see if I can get additional details.

Hi AC99 -- ComcastDan is correct. We do not have streaming rights for MLB Network for any other web site other than our own. Our web site allows you to stream MLB Network while in your home network however it is not available for any out of home network viewing.

Thanks for the reply.  Will there be any possible chance in the future that I will be able to watch it outside of my home network, similar to how I can view WatchESPN and FOX Sports Go outside of my home?  Thanks.

Hey  AC99-- it's possible that it could be available in the future. If you'd like to submit your interest for additional streaming options on the MLB network, please visit here: https://www.xfinity.com/support/cable-tv/channel-availability-faqs/​ .
