Watch Yankees vs Red Sox: series preview
With the stinking form that the Red Sox have been in of late, you'd have feared that things would get real ugly for the hated Yankees' first visit to Fenway Park this season, but the teams' midweek results have drastically altered the complexion of this clash of the fiercest rivals in baseball.
At long last, Alex Cora's men gave their fans something to shout about on Thursday, as Rob Refsnyder triggered a five-run scoring frenzy that could hardly have come at a better time for the Sox. True, all it did was prevent a three-game sweep at the hands of one of the worst teams in MLB, but it felt like a significant moment.
Not only did the Fenway faithful remain steadfastly behind the team through a dreadful period, but they stuck around despite a two-hour rain delay and were rewarded for their patience. The atmosphere for the visit of the Yankees should be something special.
On the same night, the Pinstripers slipped to defeat against their crosstown rivals the Mets, and while the Yankees are comfortably clear of the Red Sox in the AL East, Aaron Boone will need no reminder of the power of momentum.
Right now, that belongs to Boston, who will likely also bring the firepower of Masataka Yoshida and Rafael Devers back into the fold, and you can follow our guide as we explain how you can get a Yankees vs Red Sox live stream and watch MLB from anywhere.
How to watch Yankees vs Red Sox: live stream MLB in the US without cable
In the US, the entire Yankees vs Red Sox series is being live streamed on MLB.TV, and nationally televised on various channels. Game 1 is on MLB Network, Game 2 is on Fox, and Game 3 is on ESPN.
MLB.TV shows every game of the 2023 regular season. The streaming service is primarily suited to fans based outside of their home team's city, as all games are subject to local blackout restrictions.
However, if you happen to be traveling and need to catch your team in-market, you can get around this by taking the VPN route, which will virtually re-locate you, making it look like you're accessing the service from elsewhere in an out-of-market location.
A subscription to MLB.TV costs $119.99 for the rest of the season, though a single-team package is also available, costing $104.99. You can also pick up a monthly subscription for $24.99 per month.
As mentioned above, all three games of the Yankees vs Red Sox series are also being nationally televised, with MLB Network, Fox and ESPN being the channels you need.
If you don't have them on cable, they're all available via Sling TV, an excellent OTT streaming service that includes many other channels that show the baseball.
The Sling Orange & Blue plan will get you Fox and ESPN, as well as plenty more channels that show the baseball. A subscription costs $60, but you'll get $20 off your first month.
MLB Network is available as part of the $15 per month Sports Extras add-on.
How to watch Yankees vs Red Sox from anywhere
MLB blackout rules mean that you can't use its otherwise comprehensive MLB.TV streaming service to watch teams within your own market - fine for Yankees fans living in Seattle, not so great for those in the Bronx.
It's a real pain for cord-cutters, but fortunately, VPNs help you get around this by allowing you to relocate your IP address to a different location. This means if you're an out-of-market fan that happens to be traveling to your team's home location, for example, you can still watch the game without any issues.
A VPN will also work when trying to access your regular MLB streaming service (or any other sports and entertainment streaming service) from abroad when geo-restrictions would otherwise block the coverage. VPNs are legal, secure and easy to use.
