The Chicago Cubs are one of the best teams that the MLB has to offer despite not having pulled out a World Series win for over 107 years…talk about drought. We guess that’s why they are referred to as the “Lovable Losers.” But really who loves losers? However, the St. Louis Cardinals is one them; they have no love loss for which is why probably they are still loved or perhaps extra hated by St. Louis fans.
So, now that you’re interested in watching the Chicago Cubs free online because you love losers, is it really possible? Well yes and no, it’s not going to be 100% percent free and legal, but it can be free and illegal. We’ll cover all the legal avenues first before briefly touching on how it can be done illegally but just as easily.

MLB TV is the Official App of the Chicago Cubs for Streaming
MLB TV is a baseball fan’s dreams come true because the channel airs baseball 24/7. There are highlights, live games, interviews and talks all centered around the MLB.

However, there is a bit of a kink in the system! The games are not live up to the second; there are a few seconds to a minute’s delay. The reason being advertising and apparently the agreement they have signed with sports networks which restricts them from undercutting their profits.
