What streaming services carries Bally Sports Midwest?
DIRECTV STREAM is currently the only live TV streaming service that carries regional Bally Sports channels, including Bally Sports Midwest. FOX Sports Midwest re-branded to Bally Sports Midwest on March 31, 2021. Subscribers can use an Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Google Chromecast with Google TV.
Live Stream St. Louis Blues Games on Roku, Fire TV
Bally Sports Midwest (formerly FOX Sports Midwest) used to be pretty common among live TV streaming services.
But now, DIRECTV STREAM is your only choice for watching live St. Louis Blues or St. Louis Cardinals games without cable.
It costs more than competing services that live stream ESPN and NBCSN.
The Choice plan, which carries 90+ channels, is $84.99 per month. Bally Sports Midwest is only available in Missouri, Illinois, Southern Indiana, Iowa, and Nebraska.
DIRECTV STREAM still has one advantage over paying for DIRECTV, DISH or Spectrum. Your subscription is month to month so you can cancel whenever you want.
So if you’re looking to cut the cord, but still watch NHL hockey or MLB games, you should consider whether its pros outweigh its cons.
Subscribers get three months of HBO Max free (a $45 value) before the $14.99-per-month rate kicks in.
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 Fox (Bally) Sports Midwest 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 FOX Sports channels re-branded to Bally Sports channels on March 31, 2021.
