Just as it was difficult to stream first game earlier today between the Red Sox and Astros, streaming the Yankees vs. the Indians in their ALDS Game 1 will be tough to do unless you have a cable subscription that includes the sports channels. The Yankees — Indians game will be broadcast live on FSI (Fox Sports 1) Thursday so any basic cable subscription makes it easier.
If you do subscribe to a provider like Comcast or Verizon Fios, you should be able to watch through your cable providers live stream on their respective official website. If not, there are always options on the web.
Here are some live stream and live streaming back-up options if you run into trouble on Thursday.
Facebook Live stream and YouTube Live stream will be updated closer to game time. If stream cuts out during the game, be sure to check the comments sections in Facebook Live and YouTube Live as users will typically provide free streaming links.
The first pitch will be thrown by Yankees' starter Sonny Gray, who will lead a young upstart squad of Bronx Bombers highlighted by Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez. They look to build off of their Wild Card play-in momentum that lifted them to an 8-4 win over the Twins at home earlier this week.
The Indians will counter by sending Trevor Bauer to the hill as the squad looks to continue its unprecidented regular season success, trying to parlay it into a second straight World Series run. Cleveland fell in Game 7 last year to the Cubs.
