Comcast May Drop Bally Sports RSNs Tomorrow If a New Deal is Not Reached

Bally Sports’ parent company, Diamond Sports Group, is in a tough fight for survival as it tries to exit bankruptcy. Now Diamond Sports Group has until the end of the day tomorrow to reach a deal with Comcast or its channels will go dark on Xfinity TV according to a report from Puck News.

It was reported that back in December, Comcast reached a short-term contract with Bally Sports. Now, though, as Bally Sports tries to exit bankruptcy, the two sides need to reach a new long-term contract. It is very possible that Bally Sports and Comcast will reach deal or extend its talk keeping Bally Sports on Comcast.

This all comes as DIRECTV has reportedly reached a rough deal with Bally Sports to keep its channels, according to Puck News. For months now DIRECTV has been trying to redo its contact with Bally Sports as it was upset to be paying for sports teams Bally Sports no longer offers.

The question now is what are the terms of this new deal? For now though DIRECTV customers can rest knowing they won’t lose their RSNs.

This comes as Bally Sports has already lost TV rights to the first major NBA team, the Suns, which cut ties with Bally Sports and is now going to make their games free over the air thanks to a partnership with Gray Television. Not only will the games be free over the air, but they will also be streamed to viewers in the market on the new Suns Live streaming service. With this deal starting this month, fans of the Phoenix Suns and the WNBA Phoenix Mercury will be able to watch the games for free over the air on KTVK and KPHE. With the expansion of KPHE, the Suns will now be free to watch over the air in all three of Arizona’s TV markets.

Bally Sports’ parent company, Diamond Sports Group, is still in bankruptcy as it awaits the final steps to exit and resume normal operations.

The question now is what if any deal with Bally Sports reach with Comcast the second largest provider of TV services in the Untied States.
