23 June 2022: The wait is over now. Sinclair has launched Bally Sports Plus. For the first time, viewers will be able to watch the Bally Sports Regional Sports Network without Satellite, cable, or any streaming package. This is the soft launch and the service will fully roll out in the fall. Here’s everything you need to know about Bally Sports+ from compatible devices, to accessibility, pricing, and more.
Free Trial – First thing first, the Bally Sports+ comes with a seven-day free trial for new subscribers. So, hurry up, and sign up today.
Bally Sports+ is launched with both monthly and yearly plans. The monthly plan will cost $19.99 (excluding tax) and the yearly plan will cost $189.99. The annual plan will surely save you some bucks. If you don’t have the NBA and NHL teams on your local Bally Sports channel, just pay $80 for the next four months and watch the rest of the MLB season. If you have the teams, you will be able to stream sports throughout the year.
Sign-up on the official website – ballysports.com. The subscription option is also available inside the Bally Sports app (both iOS and Android versions).
Teams on Bally Sports+
Five MLB teams will be available for streaming in the soft launch – Milwaukee Brewers, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Miami Marlins, and Tampa Bay Rays. Approval for streaming the rest of the teams is yet to be taken. When the service will roll out fully, viewers will be able to stream local games from 12 NHL teams and 16 NBA teams.
What will Bally Sports+ offer?
Bally Sports+ will offer access to all live games available on Bally Sports RSNs and those on Bally Sports Extra. You will need a paid subscription to watch the games. You will also be able to follow real-time statistics and highlights of the game. With Bally Sports+, you can watch your local teams’ games without any TV subscription. For example, those living in Detroit can stream games of Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Pistons, and Detroit Tigers without local blackouts. However, for games airing on other channels such as TBS or ESPN, a live TV streaming service is required.
Bally Sports+ Application
There is no separate application for the Bally Sports+ service. It is a subscription service that can be accessed through the Bally Sports app.
The Bally Sports+ subscription can be accessed on two devices simultaneously. However, you can register up to five devices for accessing the service. Another feature of the service is that you can access the games for up to 30 days while traveling outside your local market. In case you can’t access games while traveling, you can purchase out-of-market package subscriptions.
Bally Sports+ can be streamed in HD on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, iOS, Android, and BallySports.com. For Roku devices, it will be launched in mid-July. For now, you can’t stream any game in 4K. Sign-up for Bally Sports+ now and enjoy watching your local teams in action.
