The American League emerged victorious after the 2018 MLB All-Star Game with Alex Bregman voted as MVP. Now its time for the 2019 edition of the MLB All-Star Game which will be played at 7:30 PM ET on July 9th, 2019 at the Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio. While the game is available through limited sources, if you combine the right addons and services you can still stream it live using Kodi.
Important note: Our guide only recommends official Kodi addons. The MLB All-Star Game is one of the most anticipated events during the MLB season. It will only be broadcast through limited sources. Unfortunately, this means that some fans will attempt to stream the event using unofficial sources. However, there are a few addons on Kodi which give access to the official event stream. The streams these addons provide will be more reliable than unofficial streams and will give you access to the game without putting your privacy and security at risk.
You will need a VPN to watch the 2019 MLB All-Star Game on Kodi in the UK, Canada, Australia, or anywhere else outside of the US. We’ll explain how and which ones work.
Warning: Kodi should only be used for content to which you have the legal right to access. Neither the Kodi Foundation nor Comparitech advocates the use of Kodi for piracy.
How to watch the 2019 MLB All-Star Game on Kodi with a VPN
US fans can watch the MLB All-Star Game on FOX at 7:30 PM ET on July 9th, 2019. Several services will give you access to FOX streams on Kodi. You will need to sign up for free trials if you wish to watch for free. If you are located outside of the US, you might still be able to watch for free, but you will need a VPN and a US-based payment method. VPNs help prevent ISPs from snooping on data and from throttling connection speeds for all users.
Do the following to get started with a VPN:
- Create an account with a trusted VPN provider. We recommend IPVanish for Kodi. However, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, or CyberGhost or also solid choices.
- Install your VPN app on the same device your Kodi app is on. While VPN’s can be installed directly onto routers thus covering all devices connected to your network, this is usually an involved process. We recommend that you install the VPN app on the same device you use Kodi on, such as your Windows PC.
- Connect to a US server. You will need to connect to a US-based VPN server in order to access FOX streams outside of the US.
- Install and stream from the Kodi addon offering access to FOX streams and the MLB All-Star Game.
There is no such thing as a perfect Kodi addon. For this reason, we can’t guarantee that you will definitely be able to access the addon from abroad via a VPN. You should test your options before the game in case you need to explore alternatives.
The 2019 MLB All-Star game can be streamed for free using select sources on Kodi. You will need to sign up for a free trial through the relevant service in order to stream for free.
How to watch the 2019 MLB All-Star Game on Kodi
FOX will be the network broadcasting the 2019 MLB Al-Star Game. If you are in the US or have a US payment method, you can sign up for a free trial with either Sling TV (Blue Package) or PlayStation Vue (Access package) which both carry FOX.
PS Vue Kodi addon – Free trial subscription available (US)
The PlayStation Vue streaming service is available to US viewers who want to watch the 2019 MLB All-Star Game. It offers FOX among many other channels and you can also access its functionality through an official Kodi addon.
You will need to head to the PlayStation Vue website to sign up. Select the Access subscription and you will be eligible for a 5-day free trial.
After creating your account with PlayStation Vue, you can head to the official Kodi addon repository to download the PS Vue Kodi addon. It will let you use PlayStation Vue’s service on Kodi. Next, connect your account by logging in with the same information you used to sign up for your account.
It might be possible to sign up for a Playstation Vue account from outside the US. In addition, if you have a US-based payment method, you could possibly use a VPN to create a Playstation Vue account in order to sign up for a free trial for the Access package which would then ultimately give you free access to the 2019 MLB All-Star Game.
Sling TV Kodi addon – Free trial subscription available (US)
Sling TV is an internet streaming TV service, similar to Playstation Vue, which grants access to a number of channels including FOX. This means that it is a solid choice which allows US fans to catch the 2019 MLB All-Star Game.
To get FOX through Sling TV go to Sling.com and sign up for the Sling Blue subscription. Do not select the 40% off deal. Doing this will make it impossible for you to get a free trial. The regular Sling Blue subscription offers a 7-day free trial.
After completing the signup process, go to the official Kodi addon repository and download the Sling TV Kodi addon. You will need to use the email address and password you used to sign up with to log in to the Kodi addon.
FOX Sports GO – US Access
Anyone with a cable TV or live TV streaming service that provides FOX Sports can also use the FOX Go service. This service gives users access to live sporting events broadcast over the FOX network. This means that fans in the US will be able to use the service to catch the 2019 MLB All-Star Game.
To access FOX Sports Go, you will need to enter a valid cable subscription which includes FOX Sports.
To access FOX Sports Go on Kodi go to the official Kodi addon repository and download the FOX Sports Go Kodi addon. After starting the addon, you will be asked to go to foxsportsgo.com/activate. Here, you will need to enter the code displayed on the screen. Click OK after you have completed this.
