Sinclair Aiming for $23/Month Streaming Plan for Bally Sports in 2022

Since Sinclair and Bally’s announced an agreement that would result in the branding of Sinclair’s regional sports networks to Bally Sports channels, there has been talk of bringing those channels direct to consumer. This has always been the plan for Sinclair and now we have some more details about when that new service might be available and how much it will cost viewers.

Sinclair has been raising money for a new service, according to a report from the New York Post. Sources say Sinclair has been telling potential investors that “it aims to charge $23 a month to fans who want to stream games in markets where it owns sports broadcasting rights.”

As far as timing, Sinclair reportedly wants the service to launch before the 2022 baseball season. That aligns with Sinclair CEO Chris Ripley’s comments during a conference call last month when he said they “are in discussions with the leagues and the teams about enhancing some of those rights to make the product even better.” He continued to say, “that’s what’s going on right now and I don’t see that being a threat to timing. The plan is to launch in the first half of 2022.”

For now, the only streaming option that currently offers Bally Sports RSNs is AT&T TV. Other popular streaming providers such as YouTube TVSling TV, and Hulu with Live TV have stopped carrying the Bally Sports RSNs at various times over the last three years due to not being able to reach an agreement with Sinclair over carriage fees. The company also launched the Bally Sports app this spring, allowing users to sign in with their cable or streaming credentials.
