“We are thrilled to announce this deal with fuboTV and give fans even more options to watch the Houston Rockets and Houston Astros in their home market,” said Nina Kinch, Vice President of Affiliate Relations for AT&T Sports Networks. “Both teams have had enormous success in the last few years with the Rockets making it to the Western Conference finals and the Houston Astros winning the World Series. We have had a lot of demand to bring these teams to an OTT provider and we are happy that fuboTV will help us do just that.”
“fuboTV continues to offer more regional sports networks (RSNs) than any other vMVPD – and entering the Houston market has been a priority for us,” said Ben Grad, Head of Content Strategy and Acquisition for fuboTV. “It’s an exciting year for Houston fans with the Rockets season now heating up and the Astros getting ready to pursue another World Series title. We’re thrilled to partner with AT&T SportsNet and bring Houston Astros and Rockets fans another option to get all their favorite teams games.”
