Despite Rocky Start, FloSports Adds FC Cincinnati to Streaming Lineup

In January, it was announced that Austin-based startup, FloSports, had acquired the local streaming rights to D.C. United matches. According to Washington Post, it got off to a “rough start.”

In a statement, FloSports shared: “At the start of the D.C. United match today some users were blocked in a region that shouldn’t have been. The issue was resolved but we apologize for any inconvenience.”

Despite the issues, FC Cincinnati, the latest team to join the MLS, announced that FloSports will be streaming their games regionally through 2020. Those in Cincinnati will continue to also be able to watch the games on their local MyNetworkTV affiliate WSTR.

FloSports coverage area extends to of Dayton, Lexington, and Louisville giving it more regional reach than the local telecast. Fans in other parts of the country can watch FC Cincinnati games through MLS LIVE which is included with ESPN+ ($50 per season).

You can subscribe to FloSports for $12.49 a month and stream the games on Roku, Apple TV, iOS, and your computer.

The Austin-based FloSports raised $21 million in venture funding in mid-2016. In addition to the two MLS clubs, they currently offer overseas and niche sports, as well as overflow Big Ten events not airing on Big Ten Network.
