How to Stream Fox (Bally) Sports Southwest Live?
AT&T TV is currently the only live TV streaming service that carries what was known as regional FOX Sports channels. FOX Sports Southwest is now Bally Sports Southwest as of March 31, 2021. Subscribers can use an Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Google Chromecast with Google TV.

Fox regional sports networks — now known as Bally Sports networks — used to be pretty common on live TV streaming services.
Now AT&T TV is the only game in town.
It costs more than competing services that live stream ESPN and NBCSN. The Choice plan, which carries Fox Sports Southwest and 90+ channels, is $84.99 per month.
But AT&T TV still has one advantage over paying for DIRECTV, DISH or Spectrum. AT&T TV now offers a no contract option so you can subscribe month to month and cancel whenever you want.
So if you’re looking tocut the cord, but still watch NHL hockey or MLB games, you should consider whether it’s pros outweigh its cons.
In short, a subscription gets you a free year of HBO Max (usually $14.99 per month), and a free year of NBA League Pass Premium (usually $250).
Subscribers in Texas get a wide variety of sports channels including ACC Network, Big Ten Network, ESPN, ESPN2, regional NBC Sports and SEC Network.
All of your local ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, Telemundo and Univision channels are included. And you get top cable TV channels such as ESPN, ESPN2, ACC Network, TNT, History, CNN and A&E.
And you don’t need to pay for a cable box.
AT&T TV launched with its own Android TV streaming device, but it now has apps for Roku, Amazon Fire TV, iPhones, web browsers, tablets and Samsung Smart TVs.
If you do sign up, you should know that you have to choose the “no contract” option during the account setup process. It’s not automatic.
If you opt for a two year contract, then the price drops to $69.99 per month for the Choice plan.
Why can’t I stream Fox (Bally) Sports Southwest on Hulu or YouTube TV?
There was a time when regional FOX Sports channels were available on a number of live TV streaming services.
That included Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, fuboTV and YouTube TV.
These streaming services have yet to strike a long-term agreement with Sinclair Broadcast Group since the company took ownership of 21 regional Fox Sports networks in 2019.
The Bally Sports app is set to debut for the 2021 MLB season, and replace the FOX Sports Go app. But it won’t be a standalone streaming service.
