Marquee Sports Network will now broadcast live on AT&T TV NOW. It is also confirmed that Marquee will also be aired on Hulu. This comes as welcome news for Chicago Cubs fans since Comcast stopped offering the channel on February 18th.
Marquee Sports Network is the exclusive television home of the Chicago Cubs and the only regional sports network that airs Cubs games. The network is the combined efforts of the Sinclair Broadcast Group and the Cubs. Currently, the network does have deals with AT&T, DirectTV, RCN, and Hulu cable networks. The network is in talks with other services to offer more choices for viewing the channel before the network launches on February 22.
The network aims to reach a widespread audience by working with both traditional cable providers and streaming services. Working with Hulu and AT&T TV NOW will give streamers access to Cubs Spring Training games, regular season games, original sports programming, and exclusive Cubs content.
AT&T TV NOW is the second most-popular live streaming service. Viewers do not get locked in to a cable or satellite TV subscription. Instead, all that is needed is an Internet connection and monthly subscription (no contract or commitment). Marquee Sports Network joins other popular channels offered through the service including ESPN, FOX, HBO, CBS, NBC, and ABC.
Cord cutters get the largest selection of channels with AT&T TV NOW (if you’re willing to pay for it), including both local channels and local sports. Packages start at $64.99/month, with cloud DVR included at no additional cost. The service works with most devices, including Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, iOS devices, Android devices, and Chrome and Safari web browsers.
If you’re a Chicago Cubs fan that has taken the leap and cut the cord, as of now your options for streaming Cubs games are Hulu and AT&T TV NOW.
