Bally Sports+ streaming service announces launch date in September
Bally Sports announced the launch of a new streaming service for the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Coyotes and regional college sports coming Sept. 26.
Bally Sports+ will give consumers in 19 different regions, including Bally Sports Arizona, the opportunity to watch and listen to their favorite teams without paying for a cable subscription.
The price will come to subscribers at $19.99 per month or $189.99 per year. The company will also offer a seven-day free trial to those on the fence about buying.
“Launching a streaming service like Bally Sports+ across 19 different regions, all with unique content offerings, is an unprecedented undertaking,” Bally Sports+ COO and GM Michael Schneider said in a release.
“This full introduction marks a key moment in the evolution of regional sports networks, but it is also a great moment for local fans who now have another viewing option for their favorite teams.”
The service was originally launched in June in five different regions. After the test run, fans in the remaining Bally Sports regional sports networks will all have access starting on iOS, Android or BallySports.com at launch.
Bally Sports currently has the rights to stream only five different baseball teams on the service that does not include the Arizona Diamondbacks but is in discussions with the MLB about expanding the offerings to more markets.
