What streaming services carry Bally Sports Sun?
DIRECTV STREAM is currently the only live TV streaming service that has regional Bally Sports channels. FOX Sports Sun re-branded as Bally Sports Sun on March 31, 2021. Subscribers can use an Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku, Apple TV and Google Chromecast with Google TV to watch.
Stream Tampa Bay Lightning games live on Roku, Fire TV Stick
Bally Sports Sun used to be a lot easier to find on live TV streaming services.
Now, DIRECTV STREAM is the only option for watching Tampa Bay Rays games without a cable or satellite provider.
DIRECTV STREAM does cost more than competing services that live stream ESPN or SEC Network.
The Choice plan, which carries 90+ channels, is $89.99 per month. Bally Sports Sun is available throughout Florida, and serves as a sister network to Bally Sports Florida.
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.
You can sign up for a free 5-day trial without any obligations.
Subscribers can get three months of HBO Max, Cinemax, Showtime and EPIX for free before the regular rate kicks in.
The Choice bundle has a wide variety of sports channels for watching MLB games, including FS1, MLB Network and TBS. All of your local ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, Telemundo and Univision channels are included. And you get top cable TV channels such as HGTV, TNT, and CNN.
And you don’t need to pay for a cable box.
DIRECTV STREAM works with Roku, Amazon Fire TV, iPhones, web browsers, tablets and Samsung Smart TVs.
Why can’t I stream Bally Sports Sun on Hulu or YouTube TV?
There was a time when regional Bally Sports channels — under the FOX Sports brand — 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.
Sinclair has announced plans to launch its own direct-to-consumer Bally Sports streaming service in 2022. But it currently does not have streaming rights to all the teams it plans for the service.
