How to Watch Bally Sports RSNs Without Cable or Satellite Subscription
If you’re a fan of one of 40 MLB, NBA, or NHL teams that play on a Bally Sports Regional Sports Network (previously Fox Sports RSN), YES Network, or Marquee Sports Network, you used to have a number of options to stream your favorite team. But, over the past 24 months, YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV stopped carrying them on their Live TV Streaming Service.
Currently, the only way to stream Bally Sports RSNs and YES Network is with a subscription to DIRECTV Stream’s Choice Plan ($89.99), which is currently offering $10 Off your first three months, after a 5-Day Free Trial.
So what is a fan to do?
While Sinclair is expected to launch a direct-to-consumer service in the Bally Sports App in Summer 2022, it is only expected to include games from the Miami Marlins, Kansas City Royals, Tampa Rays, Detroit Tigers, and Milwaukee Brewers.
In the mean time, these are your options to stream Bally Sports RSNs on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, iOS, Android, and your computer.
1. DIRECTV STREAM
To get your local RSN, you will need to sign-up for their $89.99 DIRECTV STREAM Choice Plan, which offers a 5-Day Free Trial. In addition to your local Bally Sports RSN, you will get all Top 35 Cable channels, as well as MLB Network and NBA TV. If you upgrade to their $104.99 DIRECTV STREAM Premier Plan, you will also get NHL Network.
For a limited time, you will also get HBO Max and other premium channels are included for three months. You will get Unlimited simultaneous streams and they now included an Unlimited DVR at no extra charge.
2. TV Everywhere Credentials
When you (or someone in your household) subscribes a cable, satellite, or streaming bundle, you will get access to the the newly launched Bally Sports App, which will give you access to live games of your local Bally Sports RSN. This will work on your streaming player like Apple TV, Fire TV, and Roku – or your mobile device.
The app currently gives those with TV Everywhere Authentication the ability to watch games, with features like rewind and view replays, search for enhanced statistics and programming, access programming from the RSNs, and news coverage of the team.
Unfortunately, right now there is no way to sign-up for Bally Sports App without a cable, satellite, or streaming subscription, so you will have to hope someone in your family does. The company has plans to launch the ability to sign-up direct-to-consumer in 2022.
3. Out-Of-Market Package + VPN
With it being more difficult to get Bally Sports RSNs, some fans are going to resort to “alternative” ways to get games. While with out-of-market packages you can’t stream local games, during previous carriage disputes some fans have changed their location with a VPN like ExpressVPN, so they could stream local games.
Depending on the out-of-market package – MLB.TV, NBA League Pass, or NHL.TV – you’re mileage might vary. This is definitely against the terms of service, but with it being harder to get channels, this is a route that we’re hearing a lot of streamers are planning to try.
