How to watch Friday night's Astros-Angels game on Apple TV+

Friday night's Astros-Angels game on Apple TV+

You won't be able to watch the Astros-Angels game on dependable AT&T SportsNet Southwest because it will only be broadcast on Apple TV+ on Friday night.

Even though Apple TV+ is a paid streaming service, all you need to do to watch the game is download the Apple TV+ app. You can either utilize the MLB.TV app and tap on Apple TV+ Game, which will direct you to the game, or you can use the Apple TV+ app on your device (iPhone, iPad, Mac, smart TV, video gaming system, or at tv.apple.com) to access the game. To watch the game there, sign in to tv.apple.com and create an Apple ID. Here, Apple lists all the different ways you can watch its service.

In the 7:10 p.m. game, Cristian Javier (5-3, 2.73 ERA) will face Michael Lorenzen (6-5, 4.24) for the Astros, who lead the Rangers by 11.5 games and the Angels by 12.5 games in the American League West. The previous time Javier pitched, he went seven innings in a combined no-hitter on Saturday at Yankee Stadium.

Major League Baseball and Apple TV+ have an agreement for weekly Friday night broadcasts of games. Their Friday Night Baseball schedule until the end of July has so far been released. The Astros have now appeared on Apple TV+ four times this season, and when the remainder of the schedule is released, they'll probably be featured at least a few more times as well.

Additionally, an Astros game in Cleveland on August 7 will be streamed exclusively on NBC's Peacock.

Last year, three Astros games were broadcast entirely on YouTube.
