Monumental Sports Network becomes latest sports rights holder to make games available via streaming

by | Oct 10, 2023

Monumental Sports Network, owned by Ted Leonsis, launched a direct-to-consumer subscription service that will let fans who aren’t pay TV subscribers watch the games of D.C.’s basketball and hockey teams for $19.99 a month, reports Broadcasting+Cable.

According to B+C, viewers can also pay $199.99 a year “to watch the Capitals, Wizards and Mystics play via the Monumental Sports Network app, which is available on iOS, Android, Apple TV and Roku. Subscribers can also use the app on Amazon Fire TV, Monumental said.

“With pay TV and regional sports networks losing subscribers to cord-cutting, Monumental becomes the latest sports rights holder to make games available via streaming.”

“We are delighted to make our network more accessible to fans without a Pay TV subscription by launching direct-to-consumer memberships,” Zach Leonsis, president of Media & New Enterprises at Monumental Sports & Entertainment, said. “Distributing our programming in new and additional ways is critical to our strategy of building the best local media platform in sports.”
