Diamond Sports Group LLC is an American media and entertainment company operating as a subsidiary of Sinclair Broadcast Group, and partnered with Entertainment Studios. The company operates Bally Sports, a group of regional sports channels which was formerly known as the Fox Sports Networks.


Sinclair Broadcast Group formed the company with Byron Allen's Entertainment Studios to acquire 22 regional Fox Sports Networks affiliates and Fox College Sports from The Walt Disney Company, which was required to divest of these networks to secure government antitrust approval.[1] The transaction, initially valued at $10.6 billion, is managed through a joint venture called Diamond Holdings Group,[2] and formally closed the transfer in August 2019 for $9.6 billion.[3] The company's regional sports networks have exclusive broadcasting rights to 42 professional teams (including 16 National Basketball Association teams, 14 Major League Baseball teams, and 12 National Hockey League teams),[4] and the channels collectively generated $3.8 billion in 2018, across nearly 75 million subscribers.[2]

Partnership with Bally's

On November 18, 2020, Sinclair announced that it had entered into an agreement with casino operator Bally's Corporation to acquire the naming rights under a 10-year deal.[5]

Sinclair announced in December 2020 that it plans to launch its own direct-to-consumer Bally's-branded streaming service, including live streaming of its linear sports networks, in 2021.[6]

On January 27, 2021, Sinclair announced that the networks would be rebranded as Bally Sports on March 31.[7][8][9] More recently, the company had received an extension agreement with the National Hockey League.[10]
