How to listen to every baseball game with your Amazon Echo

Hello, sports fans! We showed you how to listen to all that was March Madness earlier. Now, with the 2018 MLB Season underway, we’re going to show you how to enjoy every baseball game on your Amazon Echo.

We all have high hopes for our team(except maybe, Miami fans). Now, we just need a way to listen to our favorite teams. Luckily your favorite Voice-Assistant has you covered in more than one way. With your Amazon Echo, you can listen to every game this year. We’ll show you how to hear every Yankees, Astros, Giants, Red Sox, and every other team’s game live.

Before we get into the details, open your Alexa App and set up your favorite teams to be able to ask Alexa directly for scores, game times, and more.

Alexa App or alexa.amazon.com > Settings > Sports Update > Select your teams

TuneIn Live41kzH7H1H6L._SL210_QL95_BG0,0,0,0_FMpng_

TuneIn Live is a brand new subscription service brought you by TuneIn Radio. The service is available exclusively on your Alexa-Enabled device.

Alexa, open TuneIn Live

Keep in mind this will start a 7-day free trial for the service, the service is $3/month after the free trial. We think the service is totally worth $3/month not just for baseball but it also gives you NFL, NBA, and NHL games as well.

Features include:

  • Live games from MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL
  • Sports talk radio from all over the USA
  • Complete news coverage from MSNBC, CNBC, and CNN

What about free local broadcasts?

There’s a chance you could listen to your local team as well as some of the bigger national broadcasts from ESPN, Westwood One, or Fox Sports. This has been hit or miss for us in some different markets in the past. You’ll need to search the Alexa Skill Store for your local radio stations or one of the big boys mentioned above. You can also try iHeartRadio or the regular TuneIn Radio skill.


What if I just want scores, stats, and standings?

Using the Alexa built in sports update can be very helpful, just ask.

Alexa, when do the Brewers play next?

Alexa, what’s my sports update?

There’s also plenty of other skills in the Alexa Skill Store. Two of our favorites are Baseball Reference and StatMuse.

Let us know if you have any other ways you enjoy sports on your Amazon Echo.
