sports fans cheering

Are you ready to watch your favorite Chicago sports teams free with an antenna again? Earlier this year it was announced that a new Chicago sports network would be launching. This new network will offer more than 300 live Bulls, Blackhawks, and Sox games every year. The best part is it will also offer them free with an antenna bringing these teams back to free local TV—along with streaming and cable TV.

“As we set out to design the network, we began and ended every discussion with the simple question: What is best for our fans?” said Jason Coyle, who has been named president of the network after serving in Chicago-based sports media leadership roles for more than 20 years, most recently as president of Stadium. “What is the best approach to distribution? How can we push the limits of both in-game and studio production? We plan to serve our fans on as many platforms and in as many markets as our rights allow.”

The network will be a joint venture between the three teams and Standard Media. It will be available in parts of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin according to its press release. The streaming partners for this new network have not yet been announced.

The new channel will launch in October 2024 and bring sports programming to Chicago fans.
