Fox Sports regional networks were recently acquired by the Sinclair Group of companies which in turn sold the naming rights to casino Giants ‘Bally’. This has now resulted in most Fox regional sports networks being rebranded as Bally Sports. If you have been worried about watching your favorite seasonal games then here is how this change is going to affect you. Let’s take a quick look at it!
Is Bally Sports on DirecTV?
Yes, Bally Sports is on DirecTV and will be replacing the Fox Sports networks’ regional channels like Fox Sports South, Fox Sports Midwest, Fox Sports Ohio, and more. This means that if you are subscribed to a Fox Sports network pack on your current plan then you will be able to watch all the Bally Sports replacements without the need for any additional charges. DirecTV has always strived to provide the best viewing experience to its users and thus it was quite unlikely for the company to miss out on Bally Sports after the recent acquisition.
What channel is Bally Sports on DirecTV?
You will find Bally Sports replacing all Fox Sports regional networks on your DirecTV subscription. These channels won’t get new positions but rather will replace existing listings for Fox Sports regional networks.
