In the playoffs, watching the Washington Nationals is different. Here are the places you can catch the NLDS online, TV and Radio.
There are many ways to catch the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Divisional Series.
If you are lucky enough to have tickets for Games 1 and 2, remember Metro will not extend hours on their lines regardless of what time the games get over. Watch the service advisories and the schedules to find out what time the last train passes your stop. With late afternoon games this weekend, there should be no disruption in service once the game is over. With Game 5 uncertain, check accordingly, especially if it is an eight o’clock start.
No local television for the playoffs. MASN will run pre- and post-games with Johnny Holliday and Ray Knight before and after the game broadcast widow. Bob Carpenter and F.P. Santangelo will not be on the call. No simulcasts on Channel 9 WUSA either.

Fox Sports 1 will carry the first two games of the NLDS and Games 4 and 5 if needed. Kenny Albert, Tom Verducci and Harold Reynolds will be in the booth and J.P. Morosi will be on the field. Their broadcasts start at 5:30 Friday and 1 on Sunday. As the first game of a daily doubleheader, there will be no overlap channel at the start. FS1 will also have a national pre-game and post-game before and after their game coverage.
MLB Network carries one game per NLDS this year. Game 3 on Monday in Los Angeles will be their game. Bob Costas and Jim Kaat will call the game at 4:00 ET. If your cable/satellite provider does not normally carry MLB Network, many providers are doing a free preview this week for their NLDS coverage.
If you are looking for a local slant, Charlie Slowes and Dave Jaegler will have every game on 106.7 The Fan and the Washington Nationals Radio Network. Their call will also be available on the MLB At-Bat app, an option on MLB.tv’s coverage and on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio. The TuneIn app should provide them on a stream too, but that is likely not free.
ESPN Radio has the entire MLB Postseason. Dave O’Brien and Jim Bowden will do the series. A reminder, depending on the part of the country you are in, it is up to your local ESPN station when these games air. With Game 2 of the Boston Red Sox-Cleveland Indians ALDS starting at 4:30 Friday, and a full state of college football Saturday, games may not be available in your area. ESPN streams their live game feeds online and satellite radio.
The good news is all games can be legally streamed, but you are going to need a cable/satellite authentication to watch. MLB.tv and FoxSportsGo will be where you want to check. MLB.tv will have local radio feed. For those of you overseas, the streams are part of your regular subscription. No additional authorization required.
