FAQs

Why can I no longer watch D-backs baseball on Bally Sports Arizona?

Major League Baseball will take over production and distribution of all Arizona D-backs games starting on July 18, due to Bally Sports Arizona failing to perform under its contract with the D-backs.

In-market fans can watch on Cox, DIRECTV, DIRECTV STREAM, Fubo, Mediacom, Orbitel, Optimum/Suddenlink, Spectrum/Charter, TDS, Xfinity/Comcast and MLB.TV. YouTube TV, Hulu, and Sling do not offer D-backs games at this time but we continue working on expanding access.

What will the programming look like on these new channels?

Due to certain Major League Baseball national exclusivities, select regular season, special event, and Postseason games are unavailable on MLB.TV domestically and internationally. Live audio of the games that are unavailable is available to customers within “At Bat,” which is included with all MLB.TV subscriptions.
