Sinclair and YouTube TV reach a deal to keep Thunder games streaming

Thunder games will remain on YouTube TV.

After YouTube TV and the Sinclair Broadcast Group agreed to a temporary extension, past the previous Feb. 29 deadline, Sinclair announced Thursday that the two parties had reached a deal. YouTube TV will continue to broadcast 19 of Sinclair's 21 Fox regional sports networks, including Fox Sports Oklahoma.

“We are pleased that YouTube TV was able to agree to terms on 19 of our RSNs and that they will continue to provide subscribers with access to some of the most in-demand sports networks in the nation,” David Gibber, senior VP and general counsel of Sinclair, said in a statement provided to multiple media outlets. “Millions of fans across the country tune into sports content daily and, at Sinclair, our goal is to make this as widely accessible as possible.”

YouTube TV plans to drop Fox Sports Prime Ticket and Fox Sports West. Gibber made clear that he is "deeply disappointed" in that decision.

Said YouTube TV in a statement: "Affected members who no longer have access to this content will receive a notification in the YouTube TV app soon. We don’t take this decision lightly, and will continue to do our best to make YouTube TV a best-in-class experience.”
