From streaming Fox Sports South in Atlanta to watching MLB.TV out-of-market, Atlanta Braves fans have many options to follow their club this season.

The Atlanta Braves boast two of the most exciting young players in the game in 22-year-old second baseman Ozzie Albies and 21-year-old outfielder Ronald Acuna, Jr. They are worth the price of admission alone, but the team itself is one of the top clubs in the National League after winning 90 games last season enroute to the NL East title. They are expected to compete for the division again but will face tough squads from the Mets, Nationals and Phillies.

Braves fans who also happen to be cable TV cord cutters have a number of ways to watch the Braves, whether you're in the Altanta market or an out-of-market follower of the club.

Out-of-market Braves streaming

If you are a Braves fan living outside of the Atlanta market, then you can't watch the Braves on Fox Sports South. You can, however, stream their games live with an MLB.TV subscription.

You've got two options:

  • Pay $119 a year (or $25 a month) to be able to watch every out-of-market game live or on-demand, and the in-market (home) team with a 90-minute delay from the end of the game.
  • Pay $92 a year to watch a single, out-of-market team. In this case, your Atlanta Braves and nobody else.

Both MLB.TV plans also include streams of home and away radio broadcasts. The radio broadcasts aren't subject to the blackout rule, so you can listen to home team games live.
