The Bally Sports app, which was supposed to replace Fox Sports GO, isn’t quite ready yet. While Fox Sports’ RSNs officially became Bally Sports yesterday, the new app that was due to launch in conjunction with the rebranding on March 31 was nowhere to be found.
We’ve heard that it’s almost done (i.e. weeks, not months), but not quite ready yet. In the meantime, streamers will be able to continue using the Fox Sports GO app until the Bally Sports app is available. Once published, Fox Sports GO customers will automatically see the update on various platforms.
Does the Bally Sports app offer a direct-to-consumer sales service?
At this time, as long as you have access to former Fox Sports RSNs, you don’t need to sign up for anything else. Bally’s and Sinclair have discussed the idea of a direct-to-consumer service that is slated to launch in 2022.
Although Hulu, YouTube TV, fuboTV, and Sling TV no longer offer RSN Fox Sports (now Bally Sports), you can still access it with an AT&T TV Choice plan subscription.
The Bally Sports app, which has been ongoing with Deltatre, will offer access to all live games available on RSN Bally Sports, including those on their Bally Sports Extra overflow channel. To access it, you will need to sign in with your TV Everywhere credentials for your cable, streaming, and satellite provider.
The company plans to expand the app to include free games, real-time stats, and highlights throughout the game.
At the 23rd Annual Needham Growth Conference, Sinclair Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Lucy A. Rutishauser described the app as “a world-class sports app, to replace the Fox Sports Go app. The” viewing experience will be much better, it will be improved, personalized, interactive, it will have new features, new capabilities, new content around sport, sports betting, super fan… free to play (betting), rewards, community , gamification, statistics.
What devices are supported by the Bally Sports app?
Once launched, the Bally Sports app will be available on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox, PlayStation, LG Smart TV, iOS, Android and your browser.
Which teams are available in the Bally Sports app?
