- Bally Sports is a regional sports network that allows you to watch important home games on any device.
- To activate BallySports.com on any device, you’ll need the Bally Sports app or website, a compatible device, and login information if your cable provider offers Bally Sports.
- For standalone service, you can activate BallySports.com by installing the app on your device and using your controller to input your login credentials.

Every sports fan knows the dread of blacked-out games. It’s so frustrating because you don’t always get to watch important home games on your TV.
Fortunately, you can get an independent subscription to Bally Sports, a regional sports network that lets you watch important home games on any device!
But before you can really enjoy the service, you’ll need to activate your devices on BallySports.com. A lot of our readers may feel a bit overwhelmed by the thought of having to activate it on multiple devices. That’s why we’re here to make things easy.
It’s easy to set up and get working on your Roku, FireStick, tablets, and any other device you need. The steps are practically the same for all devices, so that makes this tutorial much simpler.
Of course, there are a few things you’ll need to get started. But once you have those, you’ll be ready to watch your favorite teams compete right from your home.
Activating BallySports.com on Any Device: Prerequisites
If you aren’t tech-savvy, or you’re in a hurry, don’t let a few prerequisites deter your dream of watching Bally Sports on all of your compatible devices. First, let’s take a look at which devices you can activate BallySports.com on:
If you have any of these devices, you’re already halfway there. Next, you’ll need the Bally Sports app or website on a browser. Open a browser and log into your Bally Sports account. If you don’t have one, you can sign up here (and there’s a 7-day free trial if you aren’t sure you’ll like it).
Lastly, if your cable provider provides Bally Sports as part of your current package, ensure you have the login information you use to sign into your cable account. The instructions for our readers with cable are different from those who purchase the standalone package. But we’ll cover both of those in the following sections.
How to Activate BallySports.com: Standalone Service
For our readers who signed up for Bally Sports as a standalone package, going through the activation process is quite simple. Unfortunately, for those of us who prefer to sign in using a keyboard on a computer, we don’t have that option with the standalone packages.
Instead, you must use your controller to input your login credentials. We’re using a Roku but, as stated above, the steps are the same for any of your devices. Here’s what to do:
Step 1: Install the App on Your Device
Go to your device’s app store and type in Bally Sports. Then, click Add Channel or Install (depending on the device).
Note: If you aren’t sure how to add apps on your specific device, check the manufacturer’s website for more help.
Step 2: Highlight and Click “Sign In”
After installing Bally Sports, open the app. Then, use the remote to highlight Sign In and click the Enter button to continue (this button varies depending on the controller you’re using).
Step 3: Log in to Bally Sports
Now, highlight each letter in your email address and input it into the box (including the @ and domain.com). Next, highlight each number, letter, and symbol of your password in the password box.
Finally, click Login at the bottom of the page. The app will refresh and activate your Bally Sports account on that device. Repeat these steps for all of your TVs, gaming consoles, and set-top boxes (Roku, Firestick, Apple TV, etc.).
Note: You can highlight the eye icon to the right of the password box to see your password as you’re typing.
How to Activate BallySports.com: Provider Login
Some of our readers are really lucky because Bally Sports is a part of their cable service. This setup means you don’t have to pay for a subscription and it’s a bit easier to activate BallySports.com on your devices.
Although the process does have an extra step compared to the one above, you’ll find it actually takes faster to log in with an activation code. Of course, be sure to have your provider login information handy. Then, follow these steps:
Step 1: Install the App on Your Device
Similarly to the steps above, install the Bally Sports app on your device (you can see a list of all eligible devices in the first section of this article).
Step 2: Highlight and Click on “Connect TV Provider”
Now, open the Bally Sports app and use your controller to highlight Connect TV Provider. Then, hit the Enter button to move forward. A code will appear on your television; you’ll need that code in Step 4 below.
Note: The code expires in about a minute. So, move quickly. If it does time out, click Request New Code.
Step 3: Go to BallySports.com/Activate
Open a web browser on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Then, visit the BallySports.com/activate site.
Note: If you’ve already signed into your cable provider on the same web browser, it will log you in automatically. This just makes things much easier and faster. Otherwise, you have to sign in to Bally Sports with your provider’s login information.
Step 4: Input the Code
Finally, input the code from Step 2 into the web browser. If you’re already signed into your provider’s website, it will log you in automatically. And if you aren’t signed into your account, do it now.
BallySports.com is now activated on your TV. Repeat these steps for each device you have.
BallySports.com is an excellent way to watch all of your favorite teams and sports in one place. Compared to many similar services we’ve seen in the past, it’s also much cheaper (of course, it’s even better if your service provider gives it to your for free).
Unlike other services, it’s super easy to activate and enjoy! But the steps do vary depending on whether it’s you or your provider paying for Bally Sports. Nonetheless, if you follow the steps above, you’ll get BallySports.com activated in no time.
