Hulu Will Drop Sinclair Owned Regional Sports Networks, Including Marquee and YES Network, Tomorrow

Hulu is the next streaming service to lose regional sports networks, according to emails being sent out to subscribers.

“Starting October 23, 2020, we will no longer have the rights to distribute a number of Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) that were previously included in our Live TV plans,” Hulu says in a Help Center post.

An email to subscribers adds, “While we were unable to reach an agreement with Sinclair Broadcast Group to continue offering channels like your Fox Sports RSNs, YES Network, and Marquee Network, the good news is that you will continue to have access to a wide variety of sports from other popular channels including ESPN, TNT, and TBS, as well as FS1 and FS2.”

The following regional sports networks will no longer be carried on Hulu.

  • FS Arizona
  • FS. Detroit
  • FS Florida
  • FS Midwest (including FS Indiana and FS Kansas City)
  • FS North (including FS Wisconsin) 
  • FS Ohio
  • FS Prime Ticket
  • FS San Diego
  • FS South (including FS Tennessee and FS Carolinas)
  • FS Southeast
  • FS Southwest (including FS Oklahoma and FS New Orleans)
  • FS Sun
  • FS West
  • Marquee Sports Network
  • SportsTime Ohio
  • YES Network

With fuboTV dropping the channels in January, YouTube TV dropping them in March, and Sling removing the channels last year, the only way to stream the RSNs is with the AT&T TV Now Max plan for $80/month.
