The best way to watch SF Giants-Rangers on Sunday on Roku

ARLINGTON, Texas — A cable package can be of no use to Giants fans who wanted to look at the series finale against the Texas Rangers on Sunday.

The game can be broadcast on the Roku Channel as an alternative of NBC Sports Bay Area, which also implies that first pitch can be sooner than usual.

Roku, the San Jose-based streaming company, has secured the exclusive rights previously held by NBC Universal's streaming service Peacock to air 18 Sunday morning games this season. The slot, titled “MLB Sunday Leadoff,” is the primary of the day, so set your alarm.

Rangers right-hander Nathan Eovaldi will throw out the primary pitch at 12:05 p.m. PT, two hours earlier within the Bay Area, which is the Giants' earliest local start time this season. They previously played Miami at 12:05 p.m. ET on the road day and may also play at home at 12:05 p.m. on the ultimate day of the season, when all games start at the identical time.

They have another game on Roku, on August 4th in Cincinnati, with first pitch also scheduled for 12:05 p.m. local time.

Keaton Winn will face Eovaldi in his return to the rotation after missing three weeks with a forearm injury.

Good news: It's free to look at, but setting it up in your TV or streaming device may require a number of extra steps.

It's easiest for owners of Roku devices, where the channel is accessible from the house screen, but The Roku Channel can also be available on Amazon Fire devices, Samsung TVs or Google TVs.

Otherwise, the sport is out there without bans on MLB.television.

While it won't necessarily be Kruk and Kuip, there’ll no less than be one familiar face on the published: Hunter Pence will provide commentary. He can be joined within the locker room by Rangers commentator Dave Raymond, and on the sphere can be Emily Jones, the Rangers' sideline reporter.

It is tentatively planned that Logan Webb can be interviewed within the dugout in the course of the game.
