Where to watch the 2017 World Series Game 7 online in Australia
The 2017 MLB season is set to conclude with a final showdown between the LA Dodgers and the Houston Astros. Here's how to catch every moment live.
For the 113th time in its long-running history, Major League Baseball's World Series championship will see the two best teams in the league compete in a tense showdown for the right to take home the Commissioner's Trophy – along with the all-important bragging rights, of course. This year, the Los Angeles Dodgers will face up against the Houston Astros for the first time in a World Series competition, with the Dodgers scoring home-field advantage thanks to out-performing the Astros in the regular season 104 wins to 101.
With the first match of the World Series swinging into action at 11:00am on Wednesday 25 October AEST, here's how you can watch it all live online here in Australia:
ESPN owns the standard broadcast rights to regular MLB games as well as the World Series, making it the go-to destination for watching the 2017 World Series live. Here in Australia, Foxtel provides access to ESPN through its Sports channel package, with every World Series match broadcast live on channel 508.
However, rather than watching it all through a standard Foxtel set-top box, regular Foxtel subscribers with the Sports package can download the Foxtel app on their Apple or Android devices or their PC or Mac computer and stream the World Series that way. Foxtel Now users with a Sports subscription can also watch the whole thing live through the corresponding Foxtel Now app.
If you haven't tried out Foxtel Now before, you can take advantage of the current two-week free trial to test out all the channel packs, Sports included, meaning you can watch the World Series for free if you sign up now.
If you're looking for more than just a live stream, MLB.TV is your answer. The official streaming service of Major League Baseball, MLB.TV will broadcast the entire World Series live through the MLB.TV website, through the MLB At Bat mobile app for Android and Apple devices and through the MLB.TV app for Apple TV, Xbox One and Xbox 360 gaming consoles and through select smart TVs from Sony, LG, Panasonic and Samsung.
Whichever way you watch MLB.TV, you'll get access to real-time highlights and player stats alongside the World Series live stream, plus you'll be able to go back and watch the World Series matches on-demand after they've been played.
The cheapest option for an MLB.TV subscription is a monthly subscription, which will set you back US$24.99 (approximately AUD$31.97). Alternatively, you can get ahead of next season by signing up for a full year for US$112.99 (approximately AUD$144.54). For more information on MLB.TV, check out our guide to watching MLB online.
