Atlanta United announced their first ever TV deal on Tuesday that includes a partnership with the Fox Sports Regional Networks. Every match will be available either on TV or through their streaming app. Read more about the specifics of the deal here.
One worry I’ve seen from United supporters so far is that of people who are cord-cutters (people who have gotten rid of cable and rely solely on streaming services). Fret not, if you do not have a cable subscription there is still hope and options for you to see Atlanta United matches this season.
So, what are the options for those of you without cable? Let’s walk through them.
Without a doubt, the best option to see the most amount of Atlanta United matches this season is fuboTV. As far as I know, with their new selection of channels provides Fox Sports South and Fox Sports Southeast available to stream for anyone in the local area without blackouts. There is no way of checking if you’re in the FSS/FSSE viewing area, but if you sign up for a free trial and check the guide you’ll know.
In addition to FSS and FSSE, fuboTV also provides UniMas and Univision to allow you to watch the four matches divided between those two channels.
The one issue with fuboTV is their lack of ESPN and ESPN2. The six matches aired on those two channels would not be streamed on this platform. But, the good news is there are additional options for ESPN.
Sling TV’s lowest cost package of $20 a month offers both ESPN and ESPN2. If you combine both, you could conservatively watch every Atlanta United match for around $60 a month, about half the cost of a cable subscription. If you can live without the ESPN games or have an alternative way to watch those matches, you’re set with just fuboTV. Sling TV also offers the local FOX RSN’s in one of their packages.
If you live outside of the FOX Sports South viewing area then the easiest option for you is MLS Live. They’ll offer every non-nationally televised match to you as long as you live outside of the blackout area.
