Regular viewers of Fox Sports will know that there’s a new brand of sports channels appearing on their cable or satellite TVs. Yes, we’re talking about Bally Sports. Following an agreement with casino operator Bally’s Corporation, Sinclair Broadcast Group has rebranded all of Fox Sports regional networks to Bally Sports for the next few years.
With this rebranding, there are now 19 regional sports networks under Bally Sports, all offering local coverage of professional sports teams across different states in the US. In this post, we’ll explain to you all the details you may need to know about the Bally Sports app, the games you can watch in them, its release date, and devices you can use them on.
Is there a Bally Sports app?
Although not ready yet, there will eventually be a dedicated Bally Sports app that will allow users to watch all content that’s broadcasted across various regional networks under Bally Sports. Bally Sports was expected to release its official streaming app when all channels under the network got renamed to “Bally Sports” on March 31, 2021, but that never happened.
According to this official page, the app is in its “final stages of development” and we can expect it to be made available across all the platforms Fox Sports’ previous app – Fox Sports Go was available in.
In addition to being an app that lets you stream coverage of your favorite sports team in the US, the official Bally Sports app is also expected to offer users an easy way to place live bets during games to win real money and this option should be available as free-to-play. Other speculated features for the Bally Sports app include highlight reels, real-time stats, overseas access, and multiple streaming device support.
When will the Bally Sports app release?
