What streaming service they will be on is not confirmed right now. Likely though it will be AT&T’s own DIRECTV NOW service as AT&T owns a controlling interests in both Roots Sports and DIRECTV NOW. Though there have been reports that PlayStation Vue and maybe even Sling TV are also in talks with Roots Sports for streaming rights.
- Roots Sports Networks Include:
- Root Sports Northwest
- Root Sports Pittsburgh
- Root Sports Rocky Mountain
- Root Sports Southwest
- Root Sports Utah.
The Root Sports Network first launched back on April 1st 2011 and is headquartered in San Francisco, California. Formally Root Sports Networks was a Fox Sports Regional Networks affiliate. That all changed back on December when DIRECTV became part owner and changed the branding from FSN to Roots Sports.
For now we will have to wait and see what service picks up Roots Sports but according to reports it is a done deal.
