Fans trying to watch on the Bally Sports+ app and online have been unable to do so for the past two games. And they're frustrated, understandably so. The network must do better.
The Bally problems could not come at a worse time for the Pacers. They already lost considerable fan engagement after Sinclair shamefully cut all ties w/ the top streaming services (Hulu Live, YouTube TV, etc.) in mid 2020. Also didn’t help that year one on cable only availability, the team went into a free-fall from the tumultuous Nate Bjorkgren season, and then followed by further sinking of the ship w/ the first half of year one of Carlisle’s return. Although they’re now in the right direction , the attendance is still bottom three in the league and won’t substantially increase until they make the playoffs again. I think only until the team lands a second star alongside Haliburton is when the exposure will truly make a leap to what it was close to a decade ago.
Bally is a joke at $189.99 for the year. I pay much less for League Pass. Fortunately I’m able to attend quite a few Pacers games because I also have YouTube TV. Dear God please let the league take over this absolute broadcasting disaster.
Subscribe to league pass and use VPN.
I subscribe to DIRECTV Stream so I can watch there. I’d rather not have to but it is what it is if I wanna watch the games. Streaming services are ruining sports.
