Diamond Sports Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the nation’s largest owner of local TV stations Sinclair Broadcasting Group, has acquired 21 regional sports networks in a deal with Disney that encompasses local rights to 42 pro teams and saw revenue of $3.8 billion in 2018 from 74 million subscribers. Sinclair was already was part of a group that last month acquired the YES Network, described as the crown jewel of the regional nets, owns the Tennis Channel and the Stadium digital network and recently announced a partnership with the Chicago Cubs on a new RSN launching in 2020. Disney made the deal as part of a settlement with the government regulators ahead of its $71.3 billion acquisition of most of Fox. Included are Fox Sports Arizona, Fox Sports Detroit, Fox Sports Florida, Fox Sports Sun, Fox Sports North, Fox Sports Wisconsin, Fox Sports Ohio, SportsTime Ohio, Fox Sports South, Fox Sports Carolina, Fox Sports Tennessee, Fox Sports Southeast, Fox Sports Southwest, Fox Sports Oklahoma, Fox Sports New Orleans, Fox Sports Midwest, Fox Sports Kansas City, Fox Sports Indiana, Fox Sports San Diego, Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket. Fox College Sports is also included. I can find no speculation that this will save sports fans any money.
