How to watch the Colorado Rockies online without cable

The Colorado Rockies aren’t one of Major League Baseball’s oldest teams (they started as an expansion team in 1993), but they’ve developed a dedicated fanbase who watched them make their way to the World Series in 200, where they eventually lost to the Boston Red Sox. Win or lose, the team gets to call the Mile High City of Denver home, a place that’s become known as a “hitter’s park” thanks to the field’s 5,280-feet (1 mile) in elevation. 

If you can’t make it to the Mile High City and recently cut your cable package, don’t worry — fans can easily watch Colorado Rockies online without cable during the season. There are a couple great streaming services on the market that actually let you live stream cable channels and baseball games, without requiring you to pay for an expensive cable package full of channels you’ll never watch.

And since navigating streaming services, blackout games and in and out-of-market games can be overwhelming, we’ve done the footwork, so you’ll have everything you need to watch baseball online without cable at your fingertips.

Our recommendations 

  • AT&T TV NOW: If you live in Colorado, you should be able to access the Colorado Rockies live stream on AT&T TV Now. The streaming service’s loaded MAX package offers local and regional channels — including the all-important AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain, where Rockies games are broadcast. 
  • MLB.TV: If you live outside Colorado, check out MLB.TV’s single team package. The streaming service is affordable, and as long as the club isn’t blocked due to your location, you should have no problem using the service to watch Colorado Rockies live.

How to live stream the Colorado Rockies

Even the biggest Colorado Rockies fan doesn’t need to stress after cutting their cable package. It just takes a little extra planning and research to understand where and how you can tune in. And while you can’t watch Colorado Rockies live stream free — or in many places — there is a solid option for both in and out-of-state fans. If you don’t want to miss a game, these are some of the best streaming options on the market:

  • AT&T TV NOW
  • MLB.TV

Watch the Colorado Rockies on AT&T TV NOW

Every game the Colorado Rockies play is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain, so it only makes sense that AT&T TV NOW is one of the best ways to watch Colorado Rockies online. The streaming service’s MAX package provides fans located in Colorado access to AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain alongside 60 other channels and an impressive array of national sports channels, including ESPN, ESPN2, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, NBC Sports Network, TBS and TNT. 

If that wasn’t enough, there’s no annual contract and you can take advantage of AT&T TV NOW’s three-user limit and record up to 500 hours of TV thanks to the included DVR feature.

Watch the Colorado Rockies on MLB.TV

Just because you don’t live in Denver or the state of Colorado doesn’t mean you have to miss this year’s Colorado Rockies schedule. MLB.TV is a great way to tune in from out of the state, and is surprisingly affordable. For less than $20 you can watch a single team’s out-of-market games live (hello, Rockies!), or pay extra for access to every out-of-market MLB game. 

How to stream the Colorado Rockies on demand without cable

In today’s busy world, it isn’t always possible to watch the game live. When you miss a game — either by a couple hours or a couple weeks — it’s helpful to know you can access the game at your convenience. Just make sure to avoid all media until you’ve gotten the chance to watch the game for yourself. For on-demand Colorado Rockies games, there’s one service you’ll want to have on your side:

  • MLB.TV

Watch the Colorado Rockies on demand on MLB.TV

Subscribers to MLB.TV can watch the full 2020 Colorado Rockies game archives with no local or national blackout restrictions. As an added bonus, if you live in an area subject to blackout (attention Coloradoians!), the game will be available as an archived game to subscribers approximately 90 minutes after the conclusion of the game.

Our hot take

If you want to watch Colorado Rockies online, you’ll first need to consider where you live (or where you’ll be tuning in). People in Colorado will need to splurge on AT&T TV NOW, while people living out of the local market can tune in with a subscription to MLB.TV. Unfortunately, since Rockies games are broadcast on the regional AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain, your options are limited. Most streaming services — like Hulu Live TV, Sling TV and fuboTV — don’t carry the channel.
