Here we go! It’s time to watch the 2023 MLB All-Star Game online, to see if the American League will continue its dominance. For the AL, the New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole (9-2, 2.85 ERA for the season) is starting, while the Arizona Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen (11-3, 3.04 ERA) opposes for the NL.

2023 MLB All-Star Game time, channel

Date: Today (Tuesday, July 11)
Time: 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT / 1 a.m. BST / 11 a.m. AEDT
Watch in the U.S.: FOX via Sling Blue or Fubo
In Canada:
Watch anywhere:
via ExpressVPN

This is Cole's first time starting in the mid-season event, following five previous appearances. Gallen's 11 wins leads the majors right now, and the NL faithful better hope that he can get them started on the right foot.

That's because the American League's representatives have won the last nine All-Star Games. The AL squad will be managed by Astros manager Dusty Baker, while the NL team is managed by the Phillies' Rob Thomson.

A win here by the American League will leave them one shy of the record set by the  National League in a streak that went from 1972 to 1982. 

Here's everything we know about how to watch the 2023 MLB All-Star Game, with some of the best cable TV alternatives.

How to watch the MLB All-Star Game online from anywhere on Earth

OK, somehow you're travelling right now, and you can't watch FOX, and are unable to follow the big game. Live streams are still possible in your neck of the woods, though — because with a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for. 

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN, which offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. 


We think speed, security and simplicity make ExpressVPN second to none. During our tests, we saw fast connection times, and we're impressed by the service's ability to access more than 3,000 services spread out across 160 locations in 94 countries. There's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you're not satisfied.
