FuboTV Inc. and Sinclair Broadcasting Group announced today that FuboTV subscribers in 19 markets will gain access to Bally Sports Regional Sports Networks, or RSNs.
Bally Sports, formerly known as Fox Sports, provides professional, college, and high school-level sports broadcasts including games from the MLB, NBA, and NHL. They are owned by Diamond Sports Group, a division of Sinclair.
In a number of markets, Bally Sports is the exclusive source to watch games from hometown sports teams. Previously, their networks were only available to stream via DirecTV Stream or their own streaming service, Bally Sports+.
The 19 networks included in this agreement include: Bally Sports Arizona, Bally Sports Detroit, Bally Sports Florida, Bally Sports Great Lakes, Bally Sports Indiana, Bally Sports Kansas City, Bally Sports Midwest, Bally Sports New Orleans, Bally Sports North, Bally Sports Ohio, Bally Sports Oklahoma, Bally Sports San Diego, Bally Sports SoCal, Bally Sports South, Bally Sports Southeast, Bally Sports Southwest, Bally Sports Sun, Bally Sports West and Bally Sports Wisconsin.
According to the company, all 19 of the Regional Sports Networks mentioned will be available to subscribers with the Base plan (known as the “Pro” plan) in their respective markets. These channels will be added “in the coming weeks.”
This is a big boost to the sports-first live TV streaming service. Just this week, the company announced the addition of networks owned by Scripps including ION, ION Mystery, ION Plus, Bounce, Grit, Newsy (which becomes Scripps News on January 1) and Court TV.
