FuboTV & Sinclair Ink New Carriage Agreement


FuboTV and Sinclair Broadcast Group have signed a carriage agreement to bring Bally Sports’ 19 regional sports networks (RSNs) to Fubo in the coming weeks.

The Bally Sports RSNs are owned and operated by Diamond Sports Group, a subsidiary of Sinclair.

The agreement expands the existing partnership, which already includes the carriage of Sinclair’s owned local broadcast stations, Tennis Channel and Marquee Sports Network, on Fubo TV.

FuboTV will offer fans a new streaming option for Bally Sports RSNs as well as a leading choice for RSN coverage with a total of over 35 networks in its portfolio, most available in its base channel package (Pro).

“RSNs are integral to FuboTV’s sports-first content strategy and our mission to super-serve local passionate sports fans,” said Henry Ahn, chief business officer of FuboTV. “We are very pleased to bring Fubo subscribers significant local sports coverage through our new partnership with Bally Sports, the nation’s leader in local sports rights. Sinclair has been a great partner, and we’re pleased that we were able to work together well to get a deal done that is meaningful and beneficial for both sides. We’re looking forward to bringing the Bally Sports RSNs to Fubo subscribers in the coming weeks.”

“FuboTV has long been associated with connecting sports fans to their favorite teams, and we are thrilled to be expanding our partnership to include the Bally Sports regional sports networks across their platform, providing Fubo’s subscribers with streaming access to their favorite hometown Bally Sports teams,” said Will Bell, senior VP, head of distribution and network relations at Sinclair. “Fubo has been a great partner, and we are excited to continue to grow our relationship to serve our collective viewers.”
