What streaming services carry FOX (Bally) Sports Florida?
AT&T TV is currently the only live TV streaming service that carries regional FOX Sports channels. FOX Sports Florida was renamed Bally Sports Florida on March 31, 2021. Subscribers can use an Amazon Fire TV, Roku and Google Chromecast with Google TV.
How to Stream FOX Sports Florida Live on Roku, Fire TV
FOX Sports Florida is now Bally Sports Florida, and it’s no longer on the majority of live TV streaming services like in years past.
AT&T TV is the one exception.
So there is still a way to cut the cord from a pricey cable TV subscription and watch the Miami Marlins play this season. But AT&T TV costs more than other streaming services that carry channels such as ESPN and SEC Network. You should weigh whether its pros outweigh its cons deciding whether to sign up.
The Choice plan has 90+ channels and costs $84.99 per month. Subscribers get a free year of HBO Max (usually $14.99 per month) and NBA League Pass Premium (usually $250).
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.
Subscribers throughout Florida, and parts of southern Alabama and Georgia get a wide variety of sports channels including ACC Network, Big Ten Network, ESPN, ESPN2, regional NBC Sports and SEC Network.
FOX Sports Florida covers teams based in Miami, Tampa and Orlando. It serves as a sister network to FOX Sports Sun.
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 works on Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Google Chromecast with Google TV and 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 Bally Sports Florida 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.
