2021 MLB Postseason TV Schedule on Fox, FS1, TBS, ESPN and MLB Network

The 2021 Major League Baseball (MLB) postseason has arrived! From October 5 thru at least October 30 (and, at most, thru November 3), a champion will be determined among the ten teams involved. The league’s broadcast partners this playoff season include Fox, FS1, TBS, ESPN and MLB Network.

It’s the Astros and the Red Sox for the American League Championship Series. Houston ousted Boston in the 2017 ALDS, but the Red Sox went through the Astros the following year in the ALCS. Both went on to beat the Dodgers in the World Series.

The Braves get another crack at the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series. Los Angeles ousted Atlanta from the 2020 NLCS in seven games en route to winning the World Series. The Braves last reached the Fall Classic in 1999.

All games aired on MLB Network, TBS, Fox and FS1 will be available to MLB.TV subscribers who are authenticated subscribers to the applicable network through a participating pay TV provider. (Cord cutters will be unable to view the MLB postseason via MLB.TV).

The following is the playoff baseball schedule, including dates, start times, TV networks and scheduled announcers (all times Eastern; subject to change):
