World Series 2021: How to watch Astros vs Braves Game 5 on Fox


The Atlanta Braves have a three-game-one lead against the Houston Astros in Game 5 of the 2021 World Series, with a chance to close the series on Sunday night. On Friday, five Braves pitchers combined for a draw against the best roster in baseball while Saturday saw the home team rally from a 2-0 hole thanks to back-to-back homers and some defense from clutch. A win tonight would give Atlanta its first title since 1995.

The first pitch for Game 5 is scheduled for Sundays at 8:15 p.m. ET (5:15 p.m. PT) on Fox. Here’s how to watch the World Series without cables.

What channels do I need to watch the World Series?

Just one. Every World Series game will be broadcast on Fox.

Can I watch in 4K?

You can. The Fox Now and Fox Sports apps offer 4K streaming to a number of 4K devices from Apple, Roku, and Amazon, as well as 4K TVs running Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or Android TV / Google TV software from Google. If you are using these apps, you may need to connect to your cable provider to stream in high resolution.

Speaking of cable companies, Comcast, Verizon, Optimum, and Cox have a 4K channel that should contain the games. Satellite providers DirecTV and Dish are also expected to have 4K streams.

If you’re looking for a streaming service and don’t have cable, you’ll want to use FuboTV or YouTube TV. Note that for the latter you need to be subscribed to 4K add-on.
