Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees

In England, bats are called clubs, fields are called pitches, and baseball is called soccer.

Just kidding.

But if you want to watch MLB’s 2019 London Series live online for free, we’ve got some serious streaming options to show you. In this article, we’ll explain how to watch the London’s first Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees game live online from the US, the UK, or anywhere else in the world.

MLB is very strict about who can watch online and from where. If you’re not in a country with an official MLB streaming option, you’ll need a good VPN to bypass region restrictions and watch the Red Sox vs Yankees two-game series for free on June 29 and 30.

Our top recommendation is ExpressVPN. It’s a premium VPN provider that offers fast servers in 94 countries and has a reputation for being able to unblock almost anything. It also improves your online privacy and security and comes with 24/7 live support.

TRY IT RISK FREE:ExpressVPN will let you access tons of region-locked content from around the world including the 2019 MLB London Series. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Note that this article only recommends official streaming sources. A few unsanctioned websites will likely be streaming the game, but these often come with a risk of malware, intrusive ads, buffering, low quality video, and sudden shutdowns. There are plenty of ways to watch the game legally and for free, so don’t bother with shady streaming sites.

How to watch the MLB London Series 2019: Red Sox vs Yankees with a VPN

English-language coverage of the MLB London Series will be streamed live in the US and UK. If you aren’t in one of those countries, you can use a VPN to bypass region blocking and watch the Red Sox play the Yankees live.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Sign up for a VPN. We recommend ExpressVPN, but NordVPN and CyberGhost are solid alternatives.
  2. Download and install the VPN app for your device. If you’re using, you’ll have to watch in a desktop web browser, because the MLB At Bat app for Android and iOS doesn’t work with VPNs.
  3. Open the VPN app and select a server in the US or UK, according to which stream you plan to watch.
  4. Hit the Connect button.
  5. Once the connection has been established, open the video as you normally would and start livestreaming!

We recommend signing up ahead of time and taking your VPN for a test drive to make sure it can unblock videos on the site where you want to stream the game. If you encounter any issues, you’ll have time to clear them up with customer service.

Where to watch the MLB London Series live online for free

Even though the London Series is a special event, these count as regular season games. So if you already have a way to watch MLB games, you should be able to watch the London Series as you normally would.

The London Series featuring the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees will be broadcast in the US on Fox and ESPN, and in the UK on BT Sport and the BBC iPlayer website. If you’re looking for a completely free option, BBC iPlayer is the simplest choice. In the US, you might be able to get the game free via a free trial of an over-the-top TV streaming service.

United Kingdom

The BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport websites will live stream both Red Sox vs Yankees games. If you’re outside of the country, just connect your VPN to a server in the UK. You might be asked to input a UK postal code or check a box that states you have a UK TV license. These details are not verified, so just check the box and/or put in any UK postal code.

United States

Fox will broadcast the first London Series game, and ESPN will broadcast the second. Cord cutters in the US have a few options to watch the Sox take on the Yankees at the end of June.

  • is the league’s official standalone streaming service. It offers a 7-day free trial and costs $24.99 per month or $99.99 per year (plus a discount if you only follow one team). Viewers must be in the US. If you’re accessing via a VPN, we recommend you do so on a desktop browser like Chrome or Firefox. Users on iOS and Android will be required to watch through the MLB At Bat app, which doesn’t work with VPNs.
  • Sling TV, Fubo TV, PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, DirecTV Now, and Hulu + Live TV are all live TV streaming services that carry ESPN and Fox. Most of them come with a free trial, and Sling is the cheapest option if you plan on purchasing a subscription.

All of the viewing options in the US are region locked, so if you’re outside of the country, you’ll need to use a VPN to watch.

About the London Series 2019: Red Sox vs Yankees

The first of this two-game series takes place on Saturday, June 29 at 6:10 p.m. London time, 1:10 p.m. US Eastern time.

The second game on June 30 is at 3:10 p.m. London time, 10:10 a.m. Eastern Time.

The Yankees and Red Sox is a century-old rivalry, which some fans have likened to Manchester United and Liverpool in the UK. The games will take place at London Stadium, currently home to West Ham United Football Club and 55,000 seats.

This double header will be the first time in history that regular season MLB games are played in the UK, but not the last. The MLB has made a two-year commitment to play in London, though the teams have yet to be selected for 2020. Here’s to hoping for a Cardinals vs Cubs game across the pond!
