Bally Sports just launched a direct-to-customer streaming service called Bally Sports+. Starting September 26th, Bally Sports+ will carry games airing on Ball Sports Ohio from NBA and NHL teams like the Cleveland Cavaliers and Columbus Blue Jackets. Not all MLB teams are available, but Bally Sports is aggressively negotiating with MLB to get the streaming rights to teams not yet on the service. Bally Sports+ is currently available on iOS and Android mobile smart devices, along with tvOS (Apple TV), Android TV, and Amazon Fire TV streaming devices and smart TVs. See our article, Is Bally Sports Worth the Price for more details.
You can subscribe to Bally Sports+ at BallySportsPlus.com for $189.99 annually or $19.99 each month and live stream games airing on Bally Sports Ohio through the Bally Sports app. To subscribe, you must live in the Bally Sports Ohio TV market. You are most likely outside the intended TV market if you do not see Bally Sports+ available on BallySportsPlus.com or within the Bally Sports app. You won’t have access to all the channels you get with DIRECTV STREAM, but it’s a cheaper way to watch Bally Sports Ohio.
