AT&T Reaches Deal with ROOT Sports Northwest to Bring Mariners to Streaming For First Time
After adding five new RSNs yesterday (AT&T Sportsnet, MASN, & NESN), AT&T is adding one more to their streaming services: ROOT Sports Northwest. AT&T has told The Streamable that they will be adding the channel to AT&T TV and AT&T TV NOW starting tomorrow. This is great news for Seattle Mariners fans, who prior to now had no way to stream games locally.
Local Teams on Newly Added RSNs to AT&T TV NOW
- ROOT Sports Northwest: Seattle Mariners
- AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh: Pittsburgh Penguins & Pittsburgh Pirates
- AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain: Vegas Golden Knights, Utah Jazz, & Colorado Rockies
- AT&T SportsNet Southwest: Houston Astros & Houston Rockets
- MASN: Washington Nationals & Baltimore Orioles
- NESN: Boston Red Sox & Boston Bruins
To access the channels you will either need AT&T TV NOW Max ($80) or AT&T TV Choice ($65 + Fees). Those on the legacy “Go Big” and “Gotta Have It” plans will also get the channels.
But, for sports fans, who don’t want TV with a contract or extra RSN fee, with AT&T TV NOW there is at least now an option to watch games locally on AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh, AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain, and MASN.

With the newly added channels, this means Altitude are the only Regional Sports Networks not available to stream on any service.
In April, AT&T added Spectrum Sportsnet and Spectrum Sportsnet LA to bring Lakers and Dodgers games to local streaming for the first time.
While other Live TV Streaming Services are dropping Regional Sports Networks, AT&T continues to add them, making them an interesting option (albeit expensive) for sports fans. But after over a year of subscriber losses, with sports being the main driver to keep your cable bundle, at least AT&T TV NOW is starting to understand who is the right customer for their service.
