August 23, 2019. The beginning of the end for easy, accessible sports content on many Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) through the provider of your choice. Sinclair Broadcast Group closed the purchase of 21 RSNs and Fox College Sports (including Fox Sports Kansas City — now rebranded to Bally Sports KC) from Disney. At the time of that deal, regional Fox Sports channels were available on numerous platforms, outside of your local cable or satellite provider. Now they are on just one — AT&T TV (former known as U-Verse) — unless you aren’t local.
First they were pulled from Dish Network and Sling TV in 2019.
