Tuesday brought big news in terms of how you can watch the Red Sox. Joining a large number of other sports networks around the country, NESN announced a new streaming service called NESNGo. With the new service, anyone with a cable subscription will be able to watch Red Sox games on a multitude of devices.
There are a lot of details involved here, including a limited number of cable providers for now. If your provider is not currently listed, the network says they should be up and running within the next few weeks. You can read the linked announcement yourself for all of the details.
Presumably, a common response to this will be a complaint about how you still need a cable subscription to watch. If you’re a cord-cutter, you still won’t be able to watch the game with NESN’s new streaming service. It is a fair complaint, and NESN joins a group of other networks that are still behind with the times in that respect. With that being said, this is still a step in the right direction. We’re moving closer to being able to cut the cord as sports fans, but we’re not there yet.
In addition to Red Sox baseball, you can apparently watch a bunch of other live NESN programming with NESNGo. Now, they just have to bring back Sox Appeal.
