Regional Sports Networks: What They Are & Where to Watch

Watch your favorite regional sports networks, teams, and all the local and international sporting events with Fubo. Don’t miss them.

Passionate sports fans may already know this but for those unaware, the way to watch the majority of your favorite sports teams is through regional sports networks, or RSNs, an essential part of the sports and television industries. Live sports play a huge part in people keeping their television cable and satellite plans but due to their popularity, regional sports networks are starting to find their way to other platforms despite carriage disputes because of the decreasing popularity of TV cable and satellite. Below, we’ll dive deeper into what regional sports networks are and how can you watch them in 2023 and beyond.

What is a regional sports network?

Basically, a regional sports network, or an RSN, is a sports television channel dedicated to local markets or specific geographical areas. For example, NBC Sports Philadelphia is the regional sports network for the Philadelphia area and serves as the home of the Philadelphia 76ers and Philadelphia Phillies. Meanwhile, Bally Sports Sun serves the Florida market and broadcasts the Miami Heat and the Tampa Bay Rays. Bally Sports Florida, meanwhile, carries the Orlando Magic and Miami Marlins. And so on and so forth. Regional sports networks don’t just carry the region’s professional teams, though; they try to cover almost all sporting events from high school to college to the major leagues.

The first RSN ever is considered to be the Madison Square Garden, the network that was the first to broadcast the New York sports teams, like the New York Knicks and New York Rangers. The popularity of regional sports networks started to really blow up after the creation of Madison Square Garden.
