How to stream Bally Sports West on Roku, Smart TVs, Fire TV and Apple TV
If you’re aiming to cut the cord from cable TV, you can still watch Los Angeles Angels and Clippers games.
DIRECTV STREAM includes Bally Sports West in the Choice channel bundle.
The Choice plan, which carries 90+ channels, is $89.99 per month.
But you should consider whether the pros of signing up for DIRECTV STREAM versus cable or satellite outweigh its cons.
Compared to other live TV streaming services, DIRECTV STREAM is on the higher-priced side of the spectrum.
Subscriptions are billed month to month so you have no long term contract or commitment. There are no hidden regional sports fees.
Subscribers can get three months of HBO Max, Cinemax, Showtime and EPIX for free before the regular rate kicks in.
You can sign up for a free 5-day trial with DIRECTV STREAM, and cancel online before the trial ends if you don’t want to keep the service.
The Choice plan includes unlimited Cloud DVR to record live TV shows and sporting events. There are more than 40,000 on-demand movies and TV episodes.
You can watch live TV on up to 20 screens at once. And you don’t need to pay for a cable box.
Subscribers can use a Smart TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku, Apple TV and Google Chromecast with Google TV.
Can I watch games on the Bally Sports app?
To watch live games, you need to activate the Bally Sports app using a TV provider. You can use a DIRECTV STREAM subscription, or a local cable provider such as Xfinity.
You can watch game and programming highlights on the Bally Sports app without signing in to the Bally Sports app.
Why can’t I stream Bally Sports West 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.
