How to Watch or Stream the Padres vs. Braves Game on Peacock

Sunday morning baseball is officially a thing.

NBC's slate of morning MLB baseball games airing on its Peacock streaming platform has begun, with another Sunday morning game this weekend. Today, May 15, the San Diego Padres will conclude their weekend visit to the Atlanta Braves with an 11:35 a.m. ET (8:35 a.m. PT) matchup. 

This is the second game of Peacock's 18-game slate that began last weekend. Unlike that game between the White Sox and Red Sox, however, this contest and the remaining 17 Sunday games will be Peacock streaming exclusives and will not air on local networks at all. 

Here's everything you need to know about these games and how to watch the rest of Peacock's baseball slate.

FAQs

How much will this cost?

Peacock has a free tier, but to watch live sports -- including MLB games -- you will need to pay either $5 per month for its Premium offering or $10 per month for its Premium Plus option. 

The difference between Premium and Premium Plus is in ads for nonlive content. If you pay for the pricier Plus option, Peacock's movies and TV shows can be watched ad-free, but not games like this.

What time are the Peacock games?

The first six games will all begin at 11:35 a.m. ET (8:35 a.m. PT), while the final 12 contests will start half an hour later and most will begin at around 12:05 p.m. ET (9:05 a.m. PT). 

Who is broadcasting and calling the games?

The broadcasts will be produced by NBC Sports and will feature pre- and postgame shows hosted by Ahmed Fareed. Jason Benetti, the White Sox announcer, will do the play-by-play for Peacock's games. He will be joined by a rotating cast of analysts from each of the two teams playing that week.

What devices can I watch on?

You can watch the games on any devices that have the Peacock app. This includes Macs and Windows PCs, iPhones and Android phones, iPads and Android tablets, as well as streaming platforms such as Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Google's Android TV and Google TV. 

If you have a game console, there's a Peacock app for Microsoft's Xbox One and Xbox Series S and X, and Sony's PlayStation 4 and PS5. Recent smart TVs from Samsung, LG, Sony, Hisense and Vizio may similarly have Peacock apps.

The streaming service is also available on some devices from cable companies like Comcast (Xfinity cable boxes or Flex player) and Cox (Contour cable box and Contour Stream Player).

More details on supported devices can be found on Peacock's site.

Are the games available on TV, too?

No. Like MLB's other streaming deals with Apple TV Plus and YouTube, these broadcasts are exclusive to Peacock, so you will not be able to watch them on your local regional sports network.
