Are you a cord-cutter who's desperate to watch the Chicago Cubs and San Francisco Giants in the National League division series?
A customer-service representative for Sling TV, which offers FS1 in its $25.99-a-month Blue package, said Friday's game will be available live in the Chicago area with no blackout.
Even if you run out and get a smart TV, be aware that not all brands offer built-in access to all apps.
So to use Sling, you would have to get a streaming-media device such as those from Roku, Google Chromecast, Apple TV and the Amazon Fire TV Stick.
Those who have pay TV through most major providers will be able to see the MLB Network broadcast live Saturday (7 p.m.), because it is offering a free preview of the usually premium channel Oct.
