There's NBA & NHL inventory right now. 

IDK, There seems to be a lot of NBA on the networks and the hockey market is pretty small - heck the NHL doesn't even rate the 1st menu tier on the ESPN homepage anymore. But either, way  the nice thing about most steaming services is that you are watching seconds after you sign up so you have until the line-up cards are already turned in for the 1st game to decide on one. Of course even as I say that I guess it isn't true of ATT as they  give you a custom control box that has to be brought your house,  though you can steam to other devices without it.

Oh, I'm talking RSNs, not the more mainstream markets.  To not have that as part of your package now?  With what we've gone through in the past year AND considering the season and more people are likely indoors watching TV?

That is probably why Sinclair wants a high price. >:(

Last November there was an announcement that Sinclair would be offering RSNs unbundled from 'cable' services. At the time I thought that meant direct to consumer marketing, but maybe that wasn't the only option. Maybe 'unbundled' from cable could still mean bundled with a stream billing, as opposed to direct marketed, in which case that would be how I'm getting it now - i.e. the RSN billing is an explicit add-on to my stream bill.  Has anyone seen FSD direct marketed to consumers yet?

It does mean direct to consumer marketing.  What I read said it was doubtful it would be ready by baseball season, possibly sometime during.  But even then it would only be a few of the networks.  I would imagine they will launch all of them the same time they rebrand from Fox Sports to Ballys.  Yeah, Sinclair signed a huge deal with Ballys to rename the networks and integrate sports betting into the channels.

LOL - how long before some 10 yr old figures out how to lose mom's house on a close game?

I have a feeling in the end individual services direct to consumer will fail. People want simple -especially when it comes to the TV  - everybody already has too many remotes, too many sign ins, too much time spent navigating. My guess is if there is anything the viewer is willing to pay for in the end it's going to be convenience. Now I suppose the bettor's market might be a special case, but if major sports turn their back on non-betting fans they will have consigned themselves to becoming Boxing V2.0.

I don’t know, it depends upon how these channels are offered.  The only channel that I’m missing is FSD.  If that were offered and available with a few remote clicks, it ain’t that hard.

if you roll out a WebOS app that runs on the garden variety TV I suppose it wouldn't be too terrible, but if that's all they were doing it doesn't seem to justify the time to market Del is talking about. A more specialized app? Or a dongle based service like a firestick or Roku?

I've been using AT&T Now for like 3 years. I got in when it was Directv Now and still have the introductory discount. I use Roku to stream it but I'm wondering how AT&T TV Now is different than AT&T TV? They seem like the same thing?

hard to say. So we had U-verse - which was considered a 'cable' service, even though it had been IP based for years. We cancelled it and used YTTV for a while. When I go back to ATT's site now, ATT-TV is pretty much all they sell. If you have UVerse they are not coming for you cable box, but you can't buy it as a new subscriber. OTOH, the ATT TV 'streaming' service comes with it's own control unit - just like a cable box! But no local disk drive for the DVR - that's in the cloud. Now when I had Uverse 'cable' I could stream to a mobile device, I could not stream to a computer. ATT TV I can stream to anything but I do get greater interface control when I'm watching the set with the box. So you tell me where the lines between various kinds of service are, I can't tell.     xD

YTTV with a few announcements.

They are going to start allowing unlimited streams from your house.  Currently only 3 are allowed.

They are going to allow you to download content.  They didn't say which content though.

And they are going to start streaming 4K content.  They called it an addon package so it will probably cost extra.

Sinclair is already setting up a streaming service for their Fox Sports stations. 

First few teams were supposed to be ready by the start of baseball season with the rest by the end of the year.

I remember hearing about this.  Getting itchy about pulling the trigger on Spectrum, sure would like to know what is going on with FSD's streaming future.
