You can watch Aaron Judge potentially shatter Roger Maris' home run record without having a subscription.
There's a strong possibility you can watch the potentially historic game between the Red Sox and Yankees on Apple TV+ for free, so don't worry that you could miss it. As part of its weekly Friday Night Baseball feature, Apple is offering free streaming of the game. Coverage will begin at 6:25 p.m. Eastern, and play will get underway at 7 p.m. You can find out if Aaron Judge will break Roger Maris' American League home run record with a little effort and the right gadget. Here's how to view.
At the Apple TV+ website or a related app, you must sign in or create a free Apple ID account. Even though Apple could ask you to add a credit card, you won't be charged for this or any other Friday Night Baseball game. The service is accessibleonline for viewers using computers and Android devices. Users of the iPhone, iPad, and Mac can also test out the native software.
You can view a variety of things in the living room as well. You may watch the Yankees-Red Sox game on recent smart TVs from Samsung, LG, Sony, HiSense, Panasonic, and Vizio in addition to Apple TV devices. Owners of the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, as well as those with Fire TV, Google TV, and Roku media players, can also watch. Apple TV+ apps are similarly available on T-Mobile Magenta TV and Comcast's Xfinity TV receivers.
Some controversy might be avoided thanks to the free watching. Letitia James, the attorney general of New York State, had enough concern about the TV+ exclusivity in a statement to request that Apple and the MLB allow fans to watch the game on the YES Network, which is focused on the New York Yankees, calling the agreement "wrong and unfair." James falsely stated that viewers must "pay extra" to view; yet, if you are reading this press release or tweet (i.e., you have internet connection), you can stream the possibly historic matchup without paying a dime. Only if all of your devices are too old to use the app or the web client is the exclusive really a problem.
