Sinclair Broadcast Group CEO Chris Ripley said Tuesday that additional streaming rights deals for its upcoming direct-to-consumer RSN service could be coming soon, adding that he believes the company has enough content in hand now to launch the product successfully. Ripley said Sinclair is in “active and ongoing negotiations,” with the NHL and the NBA for streaming rights, and that although it has rights from only four MLB teams, that could change.
