Mariners Questions

MARINERS FAQ

What is the Mariners broadcast footprint?

Seattle Mariners games are available to viewers throughout our five-state region of Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho and Montana.

 

Can I stream Mariners games?

ROOT SPORTS offers a TV everywhere stream of our channel on both an app and web platform. Games will be available to those viewers who subscribe to a television provider or vMVPD which carries ROOT SPORTS and who has agreed to allow their customers access to the TV everywhere streaming service. 

 

ROOT SPORTS is also available on AT&T TV with the “CHOICE” or “ULTIMATE” packages.

 

Is there an additional cost to receive the TV Everywhere stream via ROOT SPORTS app or website?
There is no additional cost as long as you are a valid paid telco, cable, satellite or vMVPD customer who subscribes to a video package that includes ROOT SPORTS. Data charges may apply for mobile app viewing. Please check with your mobile provider.

 

Can I stream Mariners games without being a paid telco, cable, satellite or vMVPD customer?
No, the only way to access digital streaming of ROOT SPORTS is to have a valid pay television subscription that contains ROOT SPORTS and whose provider has agreed to allow their customers access to the TV everywhere streaming service.

 

 

Why won’t you allow streaming subscription options like YouTube/Hulu/fuboTV/Other vMVPDs to carry ROOT SPORTS?

 

ROOT SPORTS is available on AT&T TV. We would love to have our network carried by these providers and be able to offer it to you as we do with all other providers. We continually try to engage these providers in conversations with the goal of having our network carried on them. So far, they have chosen not to carry us, or in most cases, a majority of other RSNs, but we will keep trying.

 

ROOT SPORTS is not unique in the lack of OTT options. While several streaming platforms claim to carry live sports, the reality is that they do not carry the local sports networks that you care about most, including ROOT SPORTS.

 

Why are you the only regional sports network that won’t let fans stream?

 

ROOT SPORTS is available on AT&T TV. ROOT SPORTS is not unique in the lack of OTT options. At this time most OTT platforms don’t carry the vast majority of the regional sports networks across the country. AT&T TV is the only one that carries RSNs broadly and nationally, and they carry almost all of them.

 

While several streaming platforms claim to carry live sports, the reality is that they do not carry the local sports networks that you care about most, including ROOT SPORTS.

 

I have access to ROOT SPORTS through my provider, but I do not see them on the TV Everywhere streaming provider list, what can I do?
Some TV providers have not yet accepted our offer allowing their customers access to our TV Everywhere stream via the ROOT SPORTS app or website. You may contact your telco, cable, satellite provider or vMVPD and request that they allow you access to stream ROOT SPORTS.

 

Why can’t I stream Mariners games when I’m traveling?

To access ROOT SPORTS via our TV Everywhere app/website you must be physically located within the Mariners league-designated viewing territory (WA, OR, AK, MT, ID).

 

I hear that fans of other teams in other parts of the country have streaming options that I don’t. Why is that?

The Pacific Northwest is not unique in the lack of OTT options that carry your favorite regional sports teams. At this time most OTT platforms don’t carry the vast majority of the regional sports networks across the country. AT&T TV is the only one that carries RSNs broadly and nationally, and they carry almost all of them.

 

While several streaming platforms claim to carry live sports, the reality is that they do not carry the local sports networks that you care about most, including ROOT SPORTS.

 

Is there an OTT/vMVPD option available where I live?

We are thrilled to offer customers in all regions another option to watch their favorite teams’ games with the AT&T TV. ROOT SPORTS is available with the “CHOICE” or “ULTIMATE” packages.

 

If you subscribe to another OTT provider and you would like to see ROOT SPORTS, please call them and request that they add the network to their channel line-up.

 

Am I able to watch the Mariners on MLB Extra Innings or on MLB.TV?

If you live within the team’s league-designated home television territory (WA, OR, AK, MT, ID), then you will not be able to watch Mariners games via MLB Extra Innings or MLB.TV.
