Time to play ball and watch the 2021 Little League World Series live streams online, starting today. The tournament is back after taking a hiatus last year due to the pandemic. But now, the all-star teams of kid baseball players are ready to go to bat in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, in the hope of becoming the Little League World Series Champion.

LLWS start time, channels

The first four games of the Little League World Series kick off today (August 19 )at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN. Other games will air on ESPN2 and ABC.
• ESPN and ESPN are available on Sling TV.

There are 16 teams in the tournament's double-elimination bracket. That means the teams that lose their first-round game will still have a chance to get to the final. Each side of the bracket, named for Hank Aaron and Tom Seaver, respectively, will see one team from the winner's field and one team from the elimination field face off. Then, the prevailing teams from both sides will meet in the LLWS final for a shot at the championship trophy.

Here's everything you need to watch the 2021 Little League World Series live streams, including the full schedule below.

How to watch 2021 Little League World Series from anywhere on Earth

Just because ESPN isn't available everywhere doesn't mean you need to miss the 2021 Little League World Series if you're away from home. Watching along with the rest of the internet can be pretty easy. With the right VPN (virtual private network), you can stream the show from wherever you go.

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well. Here are our top picks.

Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN, really shines thanks to its safety, speed and simplicity-to-use. It's also compatible with loads of devices - from iOS and Android to Roku, Apple TV and PlayStations. You'll even get an extra 3 months free if you sign up for a year, or there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you just want to give it a try.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to your website or streaming service of choice and tune in.

In the U.S., the 2021 Little League World Series begins today (Thursday, August 19) at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN. Other games will air on ESPN2 and ABC.

ABC can be accessed with one of the best TV antennas, but you'll need a cable package for ESPN and ESPN2. 

If you've already cut the cord and don't have cable, you'll be able to watch games via Sling TV, FuboTV, YouTube TV, and Hulu with Live TV. 

Even though Sling doesn't have ABC, it's one of the best streaming services due to its affordable price. And the Sling Orange package has ESPN and ESPN2. We also recommend Fubo, which has a more comprehensive lineup.

Best Price

Sling TV: You can get ESPN and ESPN2 in the Sling Orange package. The 30-plus channels in the lineup include AMC, CNN, Food Network, AMC, Comedy Central, HGTV and many more.View Deal

Fubo.TV is a great alternative to a cable package. With the Starter Plan ($65 per month), you get over 120 channels, including ABC and other broadcast networks as well as top cable brands like ESPN, AMC, HGTV, FX, Syfy and Paramount Network. View Deal
