MLB Fans in the Dark: Comcast, Bally's Contract Dispute Leads to Channel Blackout
  • Comcast and Diamond Sports Group's contract disputes have resulted in the blackout of Bally Sports channels on Comcast's service.

  • Despite Diamond Sports Group securing contracts with Charter and DirecTV, negotiations with Comcast have stalled.

  • The impasse affects MLB fans, with certain regional games now inaccessible through Comcast's network.

  • MLB's existing blackout rules compound the issue by limiting alternative streaming options for the affected games.

  • A key point of contention is Comcast's preference to place Bally Sports channels on a pricier subscription tier.

  • Both parties remain open to further discussions, though no resolution has been reached at this time.
