Will the Red Sox vs Yankees live streams end in a full sweep of Boston? We're at the end of the season opener series, and New York isn't exactly playing like New York. The day after the Yankees proved they could come from behind, as they were down 3-0 in the first, they did it again. Saturday's game saw them go down 2-0, and then win 2-4. Are these new Yankees?

Red Sox vs. Yankees channels, start times

• Dates — Today (April 10)
• Start times  7 p.m. ET (Sunday)
• U.S. — Watch on DirecTV Stream (all games), Fubo TV (if you're in Boston) and Sling TV (Saturday and Sunday)
• U.K. — Watch on BT Sport
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free 

The big star of yesterday's game was Giancarlo Stanton, who had his six consecutive game against Boston with a home run. For Sunday's series ender, New York sends Jordan Montgomery (6-7 with a 3.83 ERA in 2021) to the mound, while Boston sends up Tanner Houck (1-5 with a 3.52 ERA in 2021).

At the same time, there's another big meta story going on. Yankees slugger Aaron Judge (RF) is starting off this season with a little extra tension, as he's still looking to get a new contract as his begins his free-agent walk year. Will Judge play like he's got something to prove? Will he be able to get the Yankees to close that $4 million gap between their offer and the $21 million he filed at? Both sides have yet to reach a deal. Yankees GM Brian Cashman says the team offered a seven-year package worth a total of just over $230 million.

The Yankees agreed to terms with 11 of the 12 players eligible, leaving Judge the only arbitration-eligible player who has yet to settle. Judge deflected contract talk with the press, stating "I don’t know anything else except going out there and trying to win a championship."

So, without further ado, here's everything we know about how to watch the Red Sox vs Yankees live streams. 

How to watch Red Sox vs Yankees live streams from anywhere on Earth

OK, somehow you're travelling right now, and you can't watch your local networks, and are unable to follow your favorite squad. Red Sox vs Yankees live streams are still possible in your new 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.

Red Sox vs Yankees live streams in the US

Finding baseball live streams online can be tricky, thanks to regional sports networks (RSNs) that are exclusive to some streaming services. 

The Red Sox vs Yankees live streams are spread across four channels with two RSNs: NESN (available on DirecTV Stream and Fubo), YES (DirecTV Stream) and two national networks: FS1 (Saturday) and ESPN (Sunday).

With Sling TV Orange & Blue, you can get FS1, ESPN and ESPN2 on Sling TV, which also has TBS (everywhere but fubo TV), a valuable channel come playoffs time. This would make Sling (the best cable TV alternative) a top option. 

For out-of-market games, you can get MLB.TV ($25 per month/$129 per year), which is also streaming the games, but if you want more than just baseball, it's not a complete solution. T-Mobile customers get free MLB.TV, along with a free subscription to the sports site The Athletic.

DirecTV Stream is one of the top streaming services for MLB live streams. This is due to its plethora of regional sports networks, which are in its $89.99 per month and up packages.

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services with NESN, and many channels that have MLB live streams, Fubo is one of the top streaming services overall. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.

One of the best options for watching nationally-broadcast MLB action is the Sling TV Blue + Orange package, which costs $50, as getting only one half ($35 per month) will have you losing out on some of the major networks: ESPN, Fox, Fox Sports and TBS. For another $10 per month, you can get the MLB Network tacked on, along with ESPNEWS, NBA TV, the NHL Network, and more. Local FOX and NBC affiliates are included.

In other streaming news, Disney Plus is getting Dancing with the Stars in a huge move to ramp up the streaming wars, as it finally gets into live events (which Netflix hasn't).

Red Sox vs Yankees live streams in Canada

Unfortunately, the Red Sox vs Yankees live streams may only be in Canada on Friday, as TSN airs the 7 p.m. game from ESPN. 

You can also get MLB.TV in Canada, though the Blue Jays will be subject to blackouts. 

Those north of the border struggling to find all the games may want to try out ExpressVPN, or another VPN service.

Red Sox vs Yankees live streams in Australia

It doesn't look like Kayo Sports and Foxtel — the main ways to watch MLB games down under — will have all Red Sox vs Yankees live streams. They mostly host the ESPN games, and only Sunday's game is on ESPN.

Kayo offers a 14-day free trial for both its Basic and Premium plans, more than enough time to confirm they're actually showing the games. The Basic package costs $25 per month thereafter. The $35 per month Premium Kayo plan gives you all the same things as the normal plan, but it offers three simultaneous streams. The Basic plan gives you two streams at the same time. 

Trying to watch all the games on the normal above services while in Australia? Check out ExpressVPN, which can help you stream remotely.

All times below are listed in Eastern Time.
