  • YouTube TV losing Fox Sports North starting this weekend

The cable replacement service made the announcement Thursday, saying it hasn't been able to reach a deal with Sinclair Broadcast Group, the owner of the Fox-branded regional sports networks which include the television homes of Cleveland's National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball teams, in addition to the Cincinnati Reds and Columbus Blue Jackets.

Asked by the Observer about whether negotiations were ongoing between Google, which is YouTube TV's parent company, and Sinclair, the owner of Fox Sports' regional affiliates, Google sent us a word-for-word copy of the email they sent to subscribers. Sadly, as is normally the case in these conditions, which means clients are in for a really abrupt cutoff come Saturday.

How much will it cost to get Fox RSNs? .

A YouTube spokesperson told The Streamable that the company didn't "take this decision lightly".

Thank you for your membership as we strive to build the best possible streaming experience for you.

The change goes into effect beginning February 29 after YouTube TV announced on Twitter that it was unable to reach a distribution agreement with Sinclair, which purchased most of the Fox Regional Sports Networks from Disney for more than $10 billion a year ago. The first games are March 26, and baseball fans everywhere will have to find other options because Sinclair and YouTube TV can not reach an agreement.

YouTube TV said in its tweets, "We purchase rights from Sinclair to distribute content to you". That's lots of groups.

Dish Network also dropped Altitude Network in Colorado and NBC Sports Chicago.

The remaining streaming services carrying Fox RSNs and YES are Hulu Live TV and AT&T TV Now.

FBN's Charlie Gasparino reports that Sinclair Broadcast Group reached a "handshake agreement" to buy Fox's RSNs from Disney.

Sling TV and fuboTV also dropped the Sinclair-owned stations from their services in recent days, citing the high cost of live sports content.
