I believe the Braves are only broadcast locally on Fox Sports cable Networks.

That's correct, there are no Braves games OTA anymore. I'm not aware of any legal option to stream Braves games without a cable or satellite subscription, as even though MLB.tv will let you stream in-market games this season, you have to authenticate through a TV provider.

Yep. I have PlayStation Vue, has the Fox Sports regionals. Even has side by side on the PS4 which I've used to watch the Hawks and the Braves at the same time. Also has Ch46 and 5. I have a special rate, which includes all the channels (over 100?) plus the Showtime channels, for $48 a month and up to five can watch simultaneously. We have it on the iPad, PS3, PS4 and Roku. But you don't need a PlayStation to get it, just a PlayStation account.

There should be a fairly good sling.tv option as well - still not as good as OTA, obviously.

Vue has unlimited dvr, keeps your shows for a month included and allows up to 5 simultaneous feeds. Sling, when I had it, had no dvr and only allowed 1 feed at a time. I think since then they've introduced a dvr, and allowed more than 1 simultaneous feed, but they cost extra. Vue is also the hands down winner of any tv service when it comes to app access. I've yet met an offered Roku or smart phone app that I can't use with my Vue credentials.


EDIT: Roku TVs have a software update where you can pause live OTA tv.

How did you get that special rate for PSVue?

I got it when it first was offered nationally. And there was a special for Showtime for a year at $3.99/month.

Those channels on 14 are useless in W. Cobb where I'm at, oh well.

I'm not sure if he does full installs but Luis fixed my OTA antenna that worked it's way out from the chimney, good job...

I found him through Franco at Smart TV Installation of Atlanta. Don't want to post his cell here.
