Watch Bally Sports South Live Stream
Bally Sports South used to be pretty easy to find on live TV streaming services when it was called FOX Sports South.
Now DIRECTV STREAM is the only option for watching Atlanta Braves or Atlanta Hawks games.
It costs more than competing services that live stream ESPN and other regional sports channels. The Choice plan, which carries 90+ channels, is $84.99 per month.
If you live in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina or Tennessee, then you’ll want to look over this guide to consider whether it’s worth it.
The service includes HBO Max free for three months (a $45 value) before the subscription rate of $14.99 per month kicks in. Your subscription is month to month so you can cancel whenever you want.
ESPN, ESPN2, ACC Network, Big Ten Network, entertainment and news networks are included in the channel lineup. There’s 20 hours of Cloud DVR for recordings. You’re also getting an on-demand library of 45,000 titles.
Finding the right live streaming service for watching sports will depend on where you live and what you’d like to have for other channels. There are a number of ways to get popular channels such as ESPN and regional NBCSN sports networks.
What do I need to live stream Bally Sports South?
You may already have all the equipment you need to start live streaming Bally Sports South and all your other favorite channels.
If you own a Roku, Fire Stick, Smart TV, game console or Apple TV, you’re pretty much ready to start trying out different services for free.
Even if you only have a PC or a smartphone, most live streaming services let you use a web browser to get your live sports fix.
A decent Internet connection is also required. By the way, you don’t have to pay a lot to get Internet without cable. I’m paying about $30 per month right now and have all the Internet bandwidth that I need for streaming live TV.
No contract required
DIRECTV STREAM has one key advantage over paying for DISH or Spectrum.
Your subscription is on a month-to-month basis, so you can cancel online whenever you like. There are no contracts.
Subscribers 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.
Why can’t I stream Bally Sports South 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.
FOX Sports networks re-branded as Bally Sports networks on March 31, 2021.
