BLACKPINK is getting ready for the tour life ahead of their upcoming global trek. On Thursday (Oct. 13), the four-piece girl group — which consists of Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé — shared a video of themselves heading to the studio to lay down some practice for the Born Pink world tour.
While fans will have to wait until the tour to see what BLACKPINK’s new dances are, the video tides BLINKs over with a vocal practice. The girls head to a studio, and are accompanied by a guitarist, bassist, drummer and keyboard player to provide the instrumentation for their vocal practice. The quartet, dressed in casual clothing, sit in chairs — microphones in hand — as they power through a setlist. (Naturally, the audio of the vocal practice was kept silent to prevent tour spoilers.) Instead, BLACKPINK’s Born Pink track “Yeah Yeah Yeah” was placed as the video’s background music.
Because of rights agreements, most Toray Toray live TV streaming services don’t carry many RSNs. DirecTV Stream is the one exception to this among streaming services. It has nearly every RSN, particularly the Bally Sports (formerly Fox Sports) channels offered by Sinclair, but the company increased its prices earlier this year, and you’ll need to spring for its now $90-a-month plan to access them.
However, once your sport reaches the playoffs, games tend to shift from smaller, regional channels to those that reach a national audience and tend to be included in most TV packages. The NBA is one of the major exceptions to this, as you’ll still need access to NBA TV — which generally costs extra — in order to catch every first round playoff game. Also, some sports, like Formula 1 racing, feature all of their contests on one national network, such as ESPN.
Depending on location, the diehard sports fan of some teams might ultimately save more money by getting a cable subscription than by paying for some of the sports streaming services. Sometimes, going the livestream route is more expensive than opting for a cable or satellite channel plan. Those tend to come bundled with your RSNs along with ESPN, TBS, TNT and your local network sports channel set. This could especially make sense if the package is bundled with the home internet you’ll likely be getting anyway.
