YouTube TV drops Fox regional sports networks MLB, NBA, NHL coverage

YouTube is positioned to dump major regional sports channels from Sinclair Broadcasting on its YouTube TV cable streaming alternative service. 

The culprit: “the rising cost of sports,” per YouTube.

In an e-mail to subscribers, YouTube, which charges $49.95 monthly for the TV service,  said it has “been unable to reach an agreement with Sinclair to continue to carry the FOX Regional Sports Networks and YES Network,” which are owned by Sinclair.  

On a YES Network FAQ page, the company said it hopes to reach an agreement with YouTube TV. “However, based on the discussions we have had to date, we are not optimistic.”
