According to the announcement of the carriage agreement between Fubo TV and Marquee Sports, Marquee will be available in these markets:

  • Chicago area and surrounding regions,
  • Indianapolis,
  • South Bend,
  • and Des Moines

This means that many Cubs fans who are out-of-state, and who don’t live in the Chicago area, will still be considered in-market for Cubs baseball. Although the territory for the Marquee Sports Network is large, fans in competing MLB markets, and fans on the east or west coast won’t have access to the channel.

In this post, I will walk you through the best options for streaming Cubs games on Marquee Sports.

The best options for watching Marquee Sports Network

As you can see from the table below, there are two live TV streaming providers that carry Marquee Sports – Fubo TV and DirecTV Stream.

Of the two options, Fubo TV is the best choice on price and Chicago sports coverage.

Watching Marquee Sports Network on Fubo TV

Fubo TV is the best streaming option for watching Marquee Sports because the platform includes Marquee Sports in its base package unlike DirecTV Stream which requires the more expensive Choice package for RSN coverage. By streaming Marquee on Fubo, Chicago fans can save almost $300 per year over DirecTV Stream.

When you consider that Fubo TV is our top pick for streaming the Chicago Bears, and that the platform offers 250 hours of DVR storage vs. only 20 hours of cloud DVR storage with the base DirecTV Stream option, Fubo wins here hands down.

As an added bonus, Fubo TV also carries NBC Sports Chicago, which gives Chicago sports fans Bulls, Blackhawks, and White Sox games.

Watching Marquee Sports Network on DirecTV Stream

DirecTV Stream Choice offers Marquee Sports, but at a significantly higher price than Fubo TV.

When is the Marquee Sports Network blacked out?

When the Cubs appear on a nationally televised broadcast, like Sunday Night baseball, ESPN will have exclusive rights and the game will be blacked out on Marquee Sports Network.
