Youtube Tv Fox Sports Agreement

By , 22/12/2020

Sinclair bought Disney`s 21 regional fox sports networks, which had to sell the RSN to get justice department approval for 21st Century Fox`s movie and television stores. As part of a separate pact with Disney, Sinclair acquired an interest in YES, which carries games for the New York Yankees and The Brooklyn Nets. A similar situation unfolded only in February to see youTube TV and Sinclair Broadcasting secure two days later an agreement that held FOX Sports North on the Minnesota subscriber lineup. Last August, Sinclair bought 21 local fox sports channels from Disney for $9.6 billion. These RSNs have the rights to cover 42 professional sports teams in the NBA, NHL and MLB. YouTube TV will also not offer the YES Network, which broadcasts New York Yankees and Brooklyn Nets games on television, with Sinclair holding a 20% stake in the channel. Of MLB`s 30 teams, 15 broadcast their games on Sinclair`s Fox networks. The dispute arrived at this stage just one month after mlb`s opening date, March 26. A number of Fox Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) will no longer be available to YouTube TV subscribers from October 1, the company said. As part of the new agreement with Sinclair, YouTube TV appears to have limited some or all of the 19 Fox RSNs available. YouTube says customers can check which channels are available in their zip code on their website at tv.youtube.com. Sinclair and YouTube are likely to want Fox`s regional sports networks on YouTube TV — it justifies the $65 monthly fee for YouTube subscribers. It`s just a matter of forcing your hand.

YouTube confirmed the agreement with Sinclair and said in a statement that YouTube TV “will continue to carry the Fox RSNs only in certain areas. Affected members who no longer have access to this content will soon receive a notification in the YouTube TV app. We are not taking this decision lightly and will continue to do our best to make YouTube TV a first class experience. UPDATE: YouTube TV customers have lost 19 Fox regional sports networks owned by Sinclair Broadcast since Thursday, after Google and the channel failed to secure extension conditions. Sinclair confirmed the news with Variety on Wednesday, where they also raised hopes of a new deal to return regional sports networks to fox on YouTube TV. YouTube TV said it would drop Fox`s regional sports networks, which are owned by Sinclair, after negotiations earlier this year for an extension of the channels. “[YouTube TV] all they have about live sports, but they picked up your bill and left FOX Sports North.
