Good news for YouTube TV subscribers in Minnesota, Fox Sports North is staying on the streaming service.

After YouTube TV announced late last month it would no longer carry the channel after failing to come to an agreement with Sinclair TV, the owner of the Fox Regional Sports Network, it appears subsequent negotiations have been successful.

"YouTube TV subscribers: We’re pleased to reach a new agreement with YouTube TV," Fox Sports North announced Thursday.

"Most YouTube TV subscribers will continue to see Wild, Wolves, Twins & United games and all the comprehensive coverage on FOX Sports North."

The two companies had come to a temporary agreement last week to keep the channel on YouTube TV packages while negotiations continued, having originally said FSN would be removed this past Saturday, Feb. 29.

"We recently announced that FOX Regional Sports Networks would no longer be available on YouTube TV," YouTube TV said in an email to subscribers.

"We have since come to an agreement with Sinclair that will allow us to continue to carry FOX Regional Sports Networks in select areas."

FSN is the home of the majority of Twins, Wild, Wolves, Lynx and Minnesota United, carrying the games when they're not part of a national broadcasts.

The resolution is a welcome one for subscribers, particularly considering previous negotiations to keep FSN on streaming services including Sling and FuboTV were not successful, and the channel is still unavailable on both platforms.

If a deal hadn't been reached, the only streaming service left with FSN would have been Hulu Live, which is more expensive than YouTube TV and doesn't offer the same account sharing capabilites.
