How to Watch Bally Sports West Without Cable

Your choices for watching Bally Sports West are growing. In 2024, Amazon is expected to take a minority stake in Diamond Sports. The deal will result in Amazon adding Bally Regional Sports Networks (RSN) to Amazon Prime as an extra option.

You can currently stream Bally Sports West without cable on DIRECTV STREAM, or Fubo. Formerly known as FOX Sports West, BSW network shows live games for Los Angeles teams like the Angels and Kings. 

The Angels are expected to play in approximately 156 games this season with all of its home games on the BSW channel.

Fans and cord-cutters can get BSW network through live TV streaming services for MLB, NBA, and NHL action. You can sign up for these streaming services on a month-to-month basis with no long-term commitments. 

Streaming live sports has expanded since a few years ago. DIRECTV STREAM isn’t the only service now. 2023 marked the first year that Fubo began carrying Bally Sports RSNs. 

Assuming the Amazon-Diamond partnership gets the approval of a bankruptcy judge, Bally Sports should become easier to get for cord-cutting Angels and Kings fans. 

Devices like Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast with Google TV, and many Smart TVs support watching BSW without a cable plan. You can also stream on iOS and Android tablets and phones.
