Comcast cable subscribers can now stream in-market MLB, NBA and NHL games from Fox Sports Net on the Fox Sports Go app. Previously, Comcast subscribers could watch Fox and FS1 events on Fox Sports Go, but not the in-market FSN games. So if you’re in Detroit, you can watch the Tigers, Pistons and Red Wings or if you’re in Los Angeles, you can watch the Angels, Clippers, Ducks and Kings.
A Comcast spokesperson has told Phillip Swann’s TV Predictions website that Comcast will add Fox Sports Net in-market streaming sometime in February, but no specific date was given.
It’s been one of the major complaints from Comcast subscribers, the inability to stream the FSN in-market games while other providers such as Charter, DirecTV and Dish had given their customers access to stream.
And the complaints got even louder when Fox gained rights to stream in-market MLB games on Fox Sports Go last year.
But now that Comcast’s regional sports networks have an agreement to stream in-market MLB games on the NBC Sports app, it would appear hypocritical to continue preventing its subscribers from streaming in-market games through Fox Sports Go.
For Comcast customers to stream it on its app, they will need to add those channels in their video package. Once that is done, they’ll be able to stream their local Fox Sports Net affiliate.
