Earlier this year, there was rumor that Peacock was considering offering a direct-to-consumer option for their Regional Sports Networks in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, and Washington. However, the report said it was too hard to price the service based on the subscriber’s location.
Unlike Bally Sports RSNs, which have been difficult to stream, those from NBC Sports are widely distributed across Hulu Live TV, fuboTV, AT&T TV, and YouTube TV. They are no longer available from Sling TV however, meaning that you will have to pay at least $64.99 a month to watch local telecasts.
