The Washington Nationals are admittedly not the most charismatic MLB team. However, despite lackluster performances in previous years, they’re on the up and up these days. They share a division with the Mets, Marlins, Phillies and the Braves

Get Nationals Highlights Video on The Official MLB Website
This is the official MLB page of the Washington Nationals and has just about everything a Nationals fan would need to keep up to date with the team. However, while there are short clips and interviews you can’t watch a live game here. Also, while we did find that the page updates quite frequently there is a bit of a delay between updates and if there is a live game in the process, it takes a few seconds for the scores to update. That said it’s not bad for a freebie option.
Subscribe to MLB.tv for Full Online Access to Live Nationals Games
We know you’re a millennial and hate television which is why we are not implying that you need to subscribe to MLB TV via your cable service provider. What we are saying is that the channel also has a website which allows you to stream the Washington Nationals online for free if you’re a subscriber via your cable service provider. You can stream via any one of their apps for iOS and Android.
People who don’t have a subscription can get a subscription to their online streaming only service for $19.99. However, you’ll be blacked out if you happen to be in or around Washington…bummer! But that’s just the way it is.
Do you want to watch the Washington Nationals free online?
There are a few free streaming websites, but those sites are illegal to access in the United States. You will have better luck trying to sneak into the stadium than getting away with stealing an illegal live stream of the Nationals online, though.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you! We can’t recommend this course of action.
