How to Watch Yankees Games Without Cable in 2022

Watch Yankees Baseball 2022

Getty Aaron Judge looks to lead the New York Yankees to another big season in 2022.

The New York Yankees made the postseason for the fifth-straight year last season, but expectations are always higher in the Bronx, and with the amount of talent on Aaron Boone’s squad, it once again feels like World Series or bust in 2022.

In 2022, most Yankees games will be locally televised on YES Network, while others may be nationally televised on MLB Network (those ones will also be on YES), ESPN, ESPN2, Fox or Fox Sports 1.

If you don’t have cable, here are some different ways you can watch every Yankees game live online in 2022, including options for both in-market and out-of-market viewers:

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 Yankees 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:

Yankees Season Preview 2022

The New York Yankees have talent to contend again but will have to get through a challenging American League East Division first. Boston, Tampa Bay, and Toronto all have playoff-caliber teams.

Aaron Judge led a Yankees lineup that only finished 13th in batting average and 10th in runs scored among AL teams. Pitching looked as tough as ever for the Yankees, rated third for ERA and second for strikeouts among AL squads.
