Bally Sports Plus is preparing to launch in all markets on September 26. This comes following a soft-launch that was available in a handful of markets. And ahead of the NHL and NBA pre-seasons kicking off.
The soft-launch, which started in June, was available for Bally Sports Detroit, Bally Sports Florida, Bally Sports Sun, Bally Sports Kansas City, and Bally Sports Wisconsin. Now, Bally Sports Plus will add these RSN’s to their streaming service: Bally Sports Arizona, Bally Sports Great Lakes, Bally Sports Indiana, Bally Sports Midwest, Bally Sports New Orleans, Bally Sports North, Bally Sports Ohio, Bally Sports Oklahoma, Bally Sports San Diego, Bally Sports SoCal, Bally Sports South, Bally Sports Southeast, Bally Sports Southwest, and Bally Sports West.
Bally Sports Plus will cost you $19.99 per month or $189.99 per year. As always, the annual plan is much cheaper, working out to about $15.75/year.
Should I subscribe to Bally Sports Plus?
Since the soft-launch in June, I’ve actually been subscribed to Bally Sports Plus and have been watching the Tigers. The service is actually pretty good, as far as broadcasting games. There hasn’t been any issues with it lagging, or buffering like some streaming services. But the big issue here is that you’re only getting your local teams. And in some markets, that’s a lot less than a market like Detroit, Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York where all four major sports teams have one or more teams available.
The other downside here is that they do not support Roku just yet. We expect that to change in the coming weeks and even ahead of the September 26 launch date. But we shall see. Currently, it is available on Apple TV, Fire TV, Android TV, iOS and Android.
We have everything you need to know about Bally Sports Plus here, to help you decide whether you should sign up for the service or not.
