Stream Seattle Sounders FC vs. Sporting Kansas City ( 10/2/22)
Match Time: Sun, October 2, 2022 at 5:00 PM EDT
MLS matches airing nationally will not air on the team's local in-market TV network. This game is airing nationally on FS1, which you can watch on any of the services listed below:
Watching Seattle Sounders FC Matches All Season
Where you can watch Seattle Sounders FC depends on a couple of factors. First, if the game is airing nationally on a network like TUDN, then you will need that network to watch regardless of where you live. If you live inside their local TV market, Seattle Sounders FC matches that aren’t nationally televised will be available to stream live on Amazon Prime. They will also air locally on Fox 13. If you live outside the Seattle Sounders FC market, you can watch matches on ESPN+ if they aren’t airing on a national network. I’ll cover both possibilities and the streaming services you need to watch Seattle Sounders FC throughout the 2022 season.
Watching Seattle Sounders FC Matches in Market
Major League Soccer handles blackouts differently than most leagues. If a match is airing nationally on FS1, ABC, Fox, or ESPN then the match won’t air on Seattle Sounders FC’s local flagship network, Fox 13. It also won’t stream on Amazon Prime. However, every match not airing nationally is available live on Amazon Prime.
Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video will stream Sounders matches as long as you live in their TV market, and the game isn’t airing on a national broadcast. The service costs $12.99 per month after a 30-day free trial, but you won’t be charged if you cancel before the trial expires. While a subscription to Amazon Prime provides access to Seattle Sounders games along with thousands of movies and TV shows through Prime video, there are also a ton of other benefits like free shipping on prime eligible purchases on Amazon. You can learn more about the other benefits of Prime in our review of Amazon Prime.
Amazon Prime video is supported on the following devices:
- Amazon Fire TV
- Amazon Fire TV Stick and Stick Like
- Amazon Fire Stick 4K
- Google Chromecast
- Apple TV
- and many more
Watching Seattle Sounders FC Matches Outside their Market
If you live outside the Seattle Sounders FC market, you will still need access to the channels that air national MLS broadcasts. However, games not airing nationally will be available on ESPN+ as long as you don’t live in the local market of either team playing. Hulu Live TV carries all the channels you need except for TUDN, but those matches are simulcast free on Twitter. Furthermore, Hulu Live TV is the only streaming service that lets you add ESPN+ to your subscription.
Hulu Live TV and ESPN+
Hulu Live TV includes access to Fox, FS1, ESPN, ABC, and ESPN2 and includes ESPN+ for a price of costs $69.99 per month. This will allow you to watch every Seattle Sounders FC match this season as long as you are living outside the TV market for that week’s match.

Other Ways To Watch Nationally Televised Matches
While ESPN+ covers a big portion of your out-of-market Seattle Sounders FC games, you will still need a way to watch National Games. The streaming service in the list below should suffice.
FuboTV – fuboTV is a live streaming service that carries Fox 13 for those living in their broadcast region, along with Fox, FS1, ESPN, ABC, ESPN2, and TUDN. They offer a 1-week free trial, which you can cancel within the trial period and not be charged. It’s also cheaper than DIRECTV STREAM at $69.99. You can cancel at any time.

DIRECTV STREAM – DIRECTV STREAM is a live streaming service that carries Fox, FS1, ESPN, ABC, and ESPN2 in their “Entertainment” package for $69.99 per month after a 5-Day Free Trial. TUDN is available on their more expensive “Ultimate” package for $104.99 per month. However, any games on TUDN will also be streamed on Twitter, so you can airplay or cast any of those games from your mobile device to your TV for free, so I don’t recommend upgrading to Ultimate unless you have to.
