A new season of Major League Baseball is approaching, and many Canadians are getting excited about the Toronto Blue Jays in 2016.  You may have heard of the popular MLB.TV service and are wondering if this will allow you to watch the Blue Jays without cable.  This post aims to clear up some confusion about this service.

Let's get  right to it.

Will Blue Jays games be blacked out in Canada on MLB.TV in 2016?

Pricing Details

MLB.TV is even more affordable this year compared to years past.

  • The full MLB.TV Premium subscription is $109.99 US/yearly or $24.99 US/monthly.  This provides home and away broadcasts to all games for all 30 teams (subject to the blackout policy linked above).
  • There is a new single team feature for $84.99 US/yearly.  This gives you home broadcasts for one team.
