You can still watch Bally Sports Indiana without the long-term commitment of cable TV. 

But streaming Indiana Pacers games isn’t as easy as it used to be when there were regional Fox Sports networks.

Now, DIRECTV STREAM is the only option for watching Pacers games without a cable or satellite provider. 

DIRECTV STREAM does cost more than competing services that live stream ESPN, or local channels such as NBC.

The Choice plan, which carries 90+ channels, is $89.99 per month.  

So if you’re looking to cut the cord, but still watch the Pacers or the Cincinnati Reds, you should consider whether the pros of watching Bally Sports Indiana without cable outweigh its cons.

DIRECTV STREAM still has one advantage over paying for DISH or Spectrum. You can subscribe month to month and 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 including ESPN, ESPN2 and Bally regional sports channels.

All of your local ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, Telemundo and Univision channels are included. And you get top cable TV channels such as HGTV, ACC Network, TNT, History, CNN and A&E.

What games are on Bally Sports Indiana?

Bally Sports Indiana is only available throughout Central Indiana. The network carries regular season games of the Indiana Pacers.

The channel also televises select sporting events from its sister Bally Sports networks. 

Those games include Cincinnati Reds games that air on Bally Sports Ohio; St. Louis Cardinals games televised by Bally Sports Midwest and Detroit Tigers games from Bally Sports Detroit

These games are only available in areas that are within the home television territory of each team. 

On Feb. 28, the regional overflow channel, Bally Sports Indiana Plus, was renamed Bally Sports Indiana Extra.

DIRECTV STREAM works on Roku, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV devices, Apple TV, Samsung Smart TVs, smartphones and tablets. 

Subscriptions run month to month so you can cancel whenever you want. 

You can look over the different channel lineups before deciding whether to sign up. 

Why can’t I stream Bally Sports Indiana on Hulu or YouTube TV?

There was a time when regional Bally 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.
