The Milwaukee Brewers have been a tough follow of late -- or, for many of their fans, an entire lifetime. Since making it to the World Series as a member of the American League in 1982 (and losing in seven games to the St. Louis Cardinals), the Brewers have made the playoffs only three times, the most recent being last year's 96-win season that ended in seven games against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS.
Led by NL MVP Christian Yelich, the 2019 Brewers are among the favorites -- along with the Cards and Cubs -- to win the NL Central this season. Brewers fans who also happen to be cable TV cord cutters have a number of ways to watch the Brew Crew, whether you're in the Milwaukee area or an out-of-market follower of the club.

Out-of-market Brewers streaming
If you're a Brewers fan living outside of the Milwaukee area, you can't watch the Brewers on Fox Sports Wisconsin. 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, the Brew Crew 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.
