Watching MLB games on your VIZIO Smart TV is easy with MLB.TV. This comprehensive guide covers everything you need to know, from signing up for MLB.TV to casting games from your phone or tablet to the big screen.

What is MLB.TV?

Mlb.tv Logo

MLB.TV is Major League Baseball’s official streaming platform. It lets you stream live regular season baseball games that aren’t available in your local TV market. You can watch on your phone, tablet, computer or compatible smart TV. Before signing up, see if MLB TV is free with Amazon Prime.

MLB.TV offers two main subscription plans:

  • Single Team – Stream games for just your favorite team
  • All-Team – Stream live out-of-market games league-wide (blackout rules apply)

Both plans let you stream in HD, view multiple games with split-screen, choose audio feeds, watch extended highlights and more.

Which VIZIO TVs Work with MLB.TV

Not all VIZIO smart TVs support streaming MLB.TV directly. But most 2016 and newer 4K VIZIO models let you “cast” MLB.TV from your phone or tablet using either:

  • Google Cast – Cast from Android/iOS devices
  • AirPlay – Cast from iPhone, iPad and Mac

This guide covers how to set up both options.

Tip: Don’t see casting options on your VIZIO TV? Make sure your smart TV software is up-to-date.
