Bally Sports is currently experiencing a technical issue which appears to prevent subscribers from logging in to the app. The Diamond Sports Group-owned service is aware of the problem and currently working on a solution.
The issue appears to have surfaced around three hours ago and continues to affect users from accessing their local regional sports network. While it remains to be seen if every RSN operated by Bally Sports is affected, it is clear that the problem currently impacts a good number of them.
In a message posted on X, the Bally Sports Help account confirmed the issue. According to the social media post, the “widespread outage” is due to an issue with the service provider. The message also goes on to explain that the outage specifically impacts the ability to sign in to the Bally Sports app.
Here’s the message in full:
“Our service provider experienced a widespread outage that impacted multiple partners. As it comes back online, signing in to Bally Sports will be impacted. We are currently working with our service provider on resolving this issue. We apologize and thank you for your patience.”Bally Sports Help on X
As Bally Sports notes, it is currently working with the service provider to fix the issue. In some of the subsequent replies to posts by unhappy sports fans, the Bally Sports Help account recommends “trying to log in a few times as we figure out a solution.”
The suggestion here appears to be that subscribers may actually find that they can log in to the app after multiple attempts. For those that find the problem still persists after repeatedly trying to sign in, it doesn’t look like anything can be done, other than waiting for the problem to be resolved.
