The Orlando Magic’s lone non-NBA TV nationally-televised game will now air on Bally Sports Florida.
The NBA announced Wednesday afternoon that the Magic’s road game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Nov. 1 has been added to Bally Sports’ schedule after previously being selected as a national exclusive to TNT.
Magic-Thunder was supposed to feature the top picks in June’s NBA draft in Orlando’s Paolo Banchero and OKC’s Chet Holmgren but Holmgren has been ruled out for the season after suffering a Lisfranc injury to his right foot during the summer.
Chicago Bulls at Brooklyn Nets replaced Magic-Thunder on TNT’s lineup. Magic-Thunder will start at 8 p.m. after originally being scheduled for a 7:30 tipoff.
Bally Sports Florida, the network home of the Magic, is now scheduled to broadcast all 82 of Orlando’s regular-season games during the 2022-23 season.
Bally Sports and Bally Sports Florida launched Bally Sports+, a direct-to-consumer streaming service that’ll give in-market fans a chance to watch the Magic via Bally Sports Florida without a cable subscription.
Bally Sports+ subscriptions can be purchased as a monthly subscription for $19.99 or an annual subscription for $189.99 ($15.83/month), both of which include a seven-day free trial.
Fans who have access to Bally Sports Florida and Bally Sports Sun regional networks based on their billing ZIP code have the option to bundle network packages at a rate of $29.99/month.
In-market customers who travel out of the market will still have access to the Bally Sports regional network they purchased through Bally Sports+ for up to 30 days at a time. Those who aren’t in-market won’t be able to subscribe to Bally Sports Florida via Bally Sports+.
Bally Sports Florida was formerly known as FOX Sports Florida. The regional sports network is widely available on several cable, satellite and streaming providers in Central Florida and North Florida.
The introduction of Bally Sports+ won’t impact customers who have Bally Sports Florida/Sun as part of their cable package. It’s a supplemental product for those who don’t already have Bally.
Customers who receive Magic telecasts on Bally Sports Florida as part of their TV subscription will continue to have the ability to stream the games on the Bally Sports app and BallySports.com by signing in to the app with their pay-TV provider user ID and password.
