Sling TV Loses Regional FOX Sports Stations

We reported earlier this week that the regional FOX Sports stations were on the verge of being taken off the service (along with the National Geographic Channel and FX) due to contract talks between DISH Network (Sling TV’s parent company) and Disney.

As of today, users of Sling TV can no longer access their local FOX Sports station because the channels have been taken off both Sling TV and DISH.

It comes at a hard time since the FOX Sports regional networks are stations that air MLB baseball games for the team in that area. On top of that, they also have been known to show select NFL preseason games, college football and NBA games as well.


These negotiations usually end up resolving themselves, but right now, there is no timeframe of when the stations will return to Sling TV or DISH. Once these negotiations go through, ownership of the stations will go to Sinclair Broadcasting.

When the FOX Sports regional stations return, they will be on the Sling Blue plan. The Sling Blue plan also has the regional NBC Sports stations, but does not have any of the ESPN Networks.

Sling TV is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac. Both the Sling Blue and Sling Orange plans cost $25 per month.
