I’m sorry to report there isn’t any excellent news for you right here, sports activities followers. Fox regional sports activities programming is disappearing from yet one more streaming service—this time, it’s Hulu.

Starting Friday, reside TV plans that beforehand supported Sinclair-owned regional sports activities networks will now not have entry to that programming. In a notice on its support page, Hulu stated that subscribers to its reside TV service “will nonetheless have entry to all kinds of nationwide and native networks relying in your location,” together with ESPN, TBS, TNT, FS1, FS2, Fox, CBS, NBC, and ABC, amongst others, however that it might be dropping over a dozen Fox regional sports activities networks. These embrace:

  • FS Arizona
  • FS Detroit
  • FS Florida
  • FS Midwest (together with FS Indiana and FS Kansas Metropolis)
  • FS North (together with FS Wisconsin)
  • FS Ohio
  • FS Prime Ticket
  • FS San Diego
  • FS South (together with FS Tennessee and FS Carolinas)
  • FS Southeast
  • FS Southwest (together with FS Oklahoma and FS New Orleans)
  • FS Solar
  • FS West
  • Marquee Sports activities Community
  • SportsTime Ohio
  • YES Community

Neither Sinclair nor Hulu instantly returned a request for remark.

Hulu is merely the most recent of a rising variety of companies which have misplaced regional sports activities channels owned by Sinclair after YouTube TV lost support final month. Barry Faber, Sinclair’s president of distribution and community relations, stated in an announcement on the time that it continued to be “in discussions in an effort to discover a mutually acceptable path to returning the RSNs to Youtube TV.” In the meantime, Fubo TV, a sports-leaning streaming service that helps reside TV, lost support for Fox regional sports activities earlier this 12 months—although it did later pick up ESPN programming.

In an announcement cited by Variety, Faber this week stated that Sinclair “provided Hulu a deal per phrases agreed to by different distributors, the streaming service refused to just accept these truthful and market-based phrases.”

As ever, dependable sports activities programming for cord-cutters stays an elusive unicorn. Good grief.
