How to stream Houston Astros games from anywhere

Last month, Warner Bros’ Discovery announced its intention to exit the regional sports business – essentially the company decided to get rid of all of its sports-focused local channels. Unfortunately for Houstonians, that list includes Warner Bros’ Discovery-owned AT&T SportsNet Southwest — aka the channel that airs the majority of Houston Astros games in that market.

It turns out the confusion among TV networks won’t stop fans from enjoying the season: Astros broadcasts will continue as usual on AT&T SportsNet Southwest while broadcast rights are carried over. Fans can breathe easy and tune in to see how the team works to emulate last year’s World Series win.

Whether you’re watching from home or anywhere else in the US, here’s everything you need to know to watch every Astros play this year.

For fans here in the Houston area, there really shouldn’t be any changes as far as watching the Astros goes. As of now, games will continue to be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet Southwest. While different cable packages vary, chances are it’s already included with your basic subscription. If you don’t have a cable, you still have plenty of options.

Local viewers can subscribe to FuboTV, which AT&T SportsNet Southwest offers as one of its channels for everyone in the area. You can enter your zip code when you sign up to ensure it’s available in your specific location, but it should cover most of the Houston area. Another option for people in the Houston area is DirecTV Stream, but you’ll need to upgrade to the Choice package to tune in.

  • FuboTV ($74.99/month after 1-week free trial)


  • DirecTV Stream (Optional Package; $89.99/month for first 3 months; $99.99/month thereafter)
