What does the World Series schedule look like?
The final game of the best-of-seven World Series takes place in Houston. The broadcast begins at 8 p.m. ET -- that's 7 p.m. CT for fans in Texas.
MLB.TV and the MLB At Bat app are great for watching out-of-market baseball games during the regular season, but they're less useful for tuning into baseball's postseason because you must be a subscriber to a participating pay TV provider. The list is short and can be found here. If you're a subscriber to one of the pay TV providers listed, the Postseason Package will run you $25. To sweeten the deal, the Postseason Package includes spring training games next year.
You can watch the World Series on Fox with an over-the-air digital antenna. We have suggestions for the best indoor antennas that start as low as $10.
