Often referred to as the ‘Big Red Machine’ by fans the Cincinnati Reds have had quite a few bad seasons lately. Though staunch fans will rebut our statement with saying “all teams have their days,” we tend to think the big red machine should turn green.

Watch The Reds on the Official Website

You simply cannot get any more official than the MLB’s official television channel which seems to have a deep love for the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds get a decent amount of coverage for a losing team, but that should put a smile on the face of every fan reading this piece.

The other option is to pull out your nearly maxed out credit card to pay $19.99 a month or for the entire year a decent $109.99 knowing that you’re helping the MLB make ends meet. After all, they’ve got kids too!

Playstation Owners who are Reds Fans can Stream to their Hearts Delight

If you are not an 80s kid or had extremely strict parents, then you probably haven’t heard of the PlayStation yet. Regardless of your ignorance, it seems like Sony has taken a jibe at the streaming cable market with the VUE.

One of the channels worth noting for baseball fans is ESPN2 where you can catch live baseball action.

At $29.99 we don’t think the VUE is cheap, but it’s good because you can stream the Cincinnati Reds online via your PlayStation, iOS device, Amazon Fire TV, and Comcast.

If you’re looking for something better and possibly slighter cheaper, we have one more legal option!
