How to watch the MLB World Series from outside your country
Scroll down for all the ways you can watch the MLB World Series online in a number of countries around the world. But first, you should know that if you're abroad at any point during the series, you probably won't be able to tune in like you normally would at home.
This is because of geo-blocking, a digital restriction that makes certain streaming services accessible in the region they're based in, and nowhere else.
When this is the case, the simplest and most reliable solution is to use a VPN service to change your IP address to a different location. This will generally let you tune in to your home coverage, and means you don't have to trawl the sketchier corners of the internet for an illegal stream.
