2019 NLDS: How To Stream Dodgers-Nationals On Watch TBS App & More Online Services

After clinching a seventh consecutive division title and the best record in the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers awaited the outcome of the Wild Card Game to determine their opponent in the first round of the 2019 MLB postseason.


That wound up being the Washington Nationals, who mounted a late rally against the Milwaukee Brewers and vaunted closer Josh Hader for a 4-3 comeback win. That propelled the Nationals into an NLDS matchup with the Dodgers for a second time in four years.

Game 1 of the 2019 NLDS is set for a 5:37 p.m. PT start at Dodger Stadium on Thursday. First pitch of Game 2 is scheduled at 6:37 p.m. on Friday. The series then shifts to Nationals Park for Game 3 on Sunday (4:45 p.m. start) and that would be the site of a potential a fourth game on Monday as well.

If the NLDS stretches to a Game 5, that will be played at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday, Oct. 9. Start times have not yet been announced beyond Game 3.

TBS has exclusive broadcasting rights for the NLDS and entire portion of the NL playoffs. Along with their television broadcasts, games can be streamed online via the Watch TBS app.

An alternative for those without a cable subscription is signing up for Sling TV and fuboTV, or streaming through PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, Hulu and others.

SlingTV offers a subscription for $15 per month for the “Sling Orange” package, which has TBS, allowing access to the NLDS games.

Postseason games for MLB.TV subscribers are only available for those with “authenticated access,” meaning customers who also purchase participating cable or satellite services. Because every postseason game is nationally broadcast, a standard MLB.TV account will not suffice.

A workaround is MLB’s playoff streaming service, Postseason.TV, but that only grants access to “live alternative video feeds,” and not the regular game broadcast, which remains blacked out. Archived broadcasts are available roughly two hours after the final out of a game is recorded.
