How to watch MLB on Peacock

While Peacock does offer a free version of its streaming service, if you want to watch its MLB Sunday Leadoff games, or any sports it provides for that matter, you have to be a subscriber to Peacock Premium. The good news is that consumers have options when it comes to a subscription, as Peacock Premium has both an ad-supported and an ad-free version. The bad news, Peacock no longer offers its free trial.

Once you are a Peacock subscriber, you can watch it on a smart TV, including Roku, Android TV and Apple TV, either a PlayStation or Xbox gaming console, mobile and tablet devices or your computer.
