Services such as Twitch and Stream2Watch are examples of websites that live stream Major League Baseball games online for free as of 2014. These services generally work on computers, mobile devices and smart TVs.
If a user wants to stream MLB games online for free, he may run into errors or slow live streaming, which might occur while watching games on these sites. This is mainly due to heavy Internet traffic, especially if the game is the finals or features two popular rival teams. Typing search terms like "free mlb game streaming" into a search engine may pull up some of these sites. Users should take time to browse these sites, as not all are created equally, and some will provide better speeds and picture quality than others depending on the site's server bandwidth.
Because some of these sites are more popular and heavily visited than others, taking time to find smaller alternatives may provide a better streaming experience. However, in visiting these sites, particularly lesser-known sites, it is important to take precautions, especially when streaming sites require that a user signs up first, answers a question or downloads something. These websites, particularly those that require the user to download something, can contain viruses that can damage the device used to access them.
