Best Amazon Prime Video Channels for Sports CordCutters 2019

Channels have become a big deal in streaming content nowadays. They are the closest thing to a la carte TV we've seen so far, and Amazon has been a leader in this area for years. Amazon Prime Video Channels give you flexibility and control over what you can watch. It has channels for all sorts of interests, including a great selection of sports options. If you don't know where to start when it comes to your favorite game, here are some options.

Loads of Live Baseball: MLB.TV

Staff favorite

MLB.TV on Amazon Prime is an amazing way for sports fans to watch the most live baseball available anywhere. You get live out-of-market games, meaning you won't get your local teams or nationally-televised games. This Prime Channel does not offer any Single Team options, which are available only on MLB.com. However, you do get simple billing, easy integration into Fire TV devices, and cool extra features like X-Ray with live stats.

Live Local Sports: CBS All Access

CBS All Access is a natural fit for sports fans on Amazon Prime Video Channels. It gives you access to CBS Live sports by streaming your local CBS station. CBS offers live NFL, PGA, college basketball, and football, including SEC conference games. If you can't get your local NFL games on an antenna, this could be your go-to sports channel on Amazon Prime Video this fall.

I am a huge fan of MLB.TV as a way to watch maximum baseball. I've been a subscriber of MLB.TV as far back as 2004. If you are a fantasy baseball player or want to follow a team that isn't local for you, this is the sports channel on Amazon Prime Video to start off your subscriptions.
