The Twins are set to return to Bally Sports North for another season, thanks to a decision made by a federal bankruptcy judge. This is great news for Diamond Sports Group, the parent company of 19 regional sports networks, as it paves the way for them to emerge from bankruptcy and stay in business.
The Twins will be featured on cable and satellite systems that carry Bally Sports North, but fans won’t be able to stream games independently of Bally. This was an option that the Twins prioritized this winter, but MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred says that the league will start offering such an option in 2025.
In addition to the Twins, Judge Christopher Lopez also approved new contracts between Diamond and the Cleveland Guardians and Texas Rangers, which will terminate their previous long-term contracts at the end of the season. The details of these contracts have been kept under seal at Andrew Goldman’s request, but it is believed that they represent a major reduction from the $54 million that the Twins collected from BSN last season.
