How to Watch the Dallas Mavericks on Fox Sports Southwest in 2021

The Great Loss started in early 2020. I’m, of course, referring to when many live streaming TV services began dropping Fox Sports Southwest due to failed contract negotiations. Lately, it’s gotten even worse.

As of the writing of this article, none of the popular streaming services carry regional Fox Sports channels. If you’re a cord-cutter that relies on Hulu, Sling, or YouTube TV for live tv, that’s bad news. What’s worse is that even many major cable TV providers have dropped the channels.

What are Mavs fans supposed to do? Where can you watch live Dallas Mavericks games in 2021?

Well, I did the research and have the answer for you. I went though every local TV provider and every known streaming service to see which ones carry Fox Sports Southwest.

Below you’ll find the name of each provider, the packages that offer regional Fox Sports channels, and the price. These providers allow to watch or stream Fox Sports Southwest live.

Disclaimer: This is all based on my own personal research. There may be other options that I didn’t find. Prices will probably change as time goes on. These prices are accurate as of the publishing of this article. For the most accurate price, contact each provider. Coverage and availability will vary. Each provider is listed in alphabetical order, so no preferential treatment was given. There are no affiliate links in this article.

[UPDATE]: This article was updated on March 4, 2021 to provide new information after AT&T closed AT&T TV Now to new subscribers. Current AT&T TV subscribers still have access to their account and all channels. But if you were going to sign up for AT&T TV Now to watch Fox Sports Southwest, this updated information will help you.

Fine Print: AT&T TV has changed dramatically with the almost shut down of AT&T TV Now. A 2-year contract is no longer required. Month-to-month billing is an option. You also do not need a cable box. You can stream AT&T TV through your Roku, Apple TV, or other streaming device. The Choice package also comes with NBA League Pass Premium for the 2021 NBA season. I can’t confirm whether or not this service will continue next season.

An AT&T representative confirmed that these two packages do include Fox Sports Southwest. However, I would suggest calling just to verify that your zip code is part of the select area.

Grande Communications Packages that Include Fox Sports Southwest

Fine Print: I couldn’t find pricing info for this package. Grande’s coverage is pretty limited and I couldn’t get an address that was in range to get pricing. But this package does carry Fox Sports Southwest.

FYI: Spectrum offers free internet to new subscribers that have a kindergarten through 12th grade, college student, and/or an educator in the household.

Shop Suddenlink Packages

  • Expanded
    • This one is a little weird. According to their channel lineup list, a package called Expanded exists and it includes Fox Sports Southwest. However, I couldn’t find pricing details and it wasn’t available when ordering new service. I wanted to include it in case you manage to find it.
  • Value TV – $58.00/month

Streaming Services that Carry Fox Sports Southwest

AT&T TV NOW

AT&T TV NOW Packages that Include Fox Sports Southwest

AT&T TV Now is effectively shut down. They no longer accept new customers. Current customers can still access their account and continue to watch TV. Nothing has changed in that regard. But you cannot sign up for new service. See packages for AT&T TV, which has changed to a no-contract, streaming format.

Update: March 4, 2021: The price of AT&T TV Now packages that included Fox Sports Southwest went up $10.

The first half of the Mavericks’ 2021 season schedule includes 16 nationally televised games. That’s over 43% of their games! So, even if you can’t switch to a TV provider or streaming services that carries Fox Sports Southwest, there will still be plenty of opportunities to watch Luka Doncic and the Mavs. But for die-hard MFFLS, the above options give you access to every game.

Finally, if I made a mistake in here, please let me know and I’ll correct it as soon as I can. I want to make sure this page is as helpful as possible to Mavs fans.

She has been a digital content creator for over 10 years, earned a Silver Creator Award, and is YouTube Certified. Then again, she also tried to fly as a child and broke her arm, so what does she know?
