This is the only streaming service that has Bally Sports Detroit

DirecTV Stream has four different channel packages: “Entertainment,” “Choice,” “Ultimate” and “Premier.” ESPN, ESPN2, Fox and FS1 are included in every one, while Bally Sports Detroit and MLB Network are in “Choice” and up, but you can pick any package and any add-ons you want with your free five-day trial:

Amazon Prime subscribers (Prime comes with a 30-day free trial) can watch every out-of-market, non-nationally televised MLB game via Prime Channels.

The MLB.TV channel costs either $24.99 per month to watch every out-of-market game (“All Team Pass”) or $109.99 for the year to just watch out-of-market Tigers games (“Single Team Pass”), but either option comes with a free seven-day trial:

In addition to one live MLB game every day, ESPN+ also has dozens of other live sports, every 30-for-30 documentary and additional original content (both video and written) all for $6.99 per month.

Or, if you also want Disney+ and Hulu, you can get all three for $13.99 per month. Separately, the three streaming services would cost a total $20.97 per month, so you’re saving about 33 percent:

Tigers Season Preview 2022

Detroit enters this season with confidence after going 69-66 for the final stretch of the 2021 season. The Tigers have been mired in a rebuild since 2017, and this season’s team could take the next step and end an eight-year playoff drought.

Last season’s Tigers squad finished 77-85 for third in the American League Central Division. The Tigers ranked 11th in runs scored and ninth in ERA.

“We did establish a good foundation,” Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said according to Fox 17’s Brad Galli. “Now we got a lot of work to do to get ready in a short period of time. I think you take the good from last season, build off of it for the people that have been here, we added some talent, and we need to address some areas that we weren’t great at, but go forward.”
