Basketball fans are preparing for another exciting stretch of Games as the 2017-18 NBA season begins! The latest campaign gets started on Tuesday night with a big doubleheader, while more teams' games will fully tip-off in the days following that. Luckily for die-hard fans, there's more than a few options when it comes to live streaming the hoops action online. Here's a look at the various ways to watch NBA teams and games on live stream via legitimate online feeds.

NBA League Pass

The top option for hoops enthusiasts to see the most games is easily the NBA League Pass service.

This particular option is available in different packages. One of those packages provides fans a way to watch any available games from around the league, although there are blackouts and restrictions for some.

The top-level choice is "All Teams plus More" for $39.99 a month, with an "All Teams" options starting at $28.99 a month. There's also an option to watch games from just one specific team. That runs $17.99 a month as of this report.

NBA League Pass offers fans the ability to watch games on a variety of devices including mobile phones, tablets, laptop computers, video game systems, and streaming media players such as Apple TV, Roku or Fire TV. See more details at the website.


With a week of games ahead, a free one-week trial to SlingTV, or even a monthly membership could make a lot of sense. The service offers one channel package known as Sling Orange which includes TNT as part of its channels. Customers can then add the "Sports Extra" add-on which includes ESPN among other sports channels.

With both ESPN and TNT, viewers can watch all of the games shown on these channels free for a week, or keep the subscription which runs about $24.99 a month plus tax and or fees. For more information about SlingTV, check out the Sling website.

Cable & satellite TV subscribers

Many viewers who currently have cable and satellite television service will have access to live streams.

For example, anyone who has ESPN in their service package should be able to log into the WatchESPN website or apps to see live feeds of the games and content shown on ESPN.

Customers who have TNT should be able to go to the TNT Drama website or WatchTNT apps to see live game feeds.

In addition, some games are shown on regional Fox Sports channels. If a customer lives in one of the viewing areas, then the Fox Sports Go website and apps should have those games available for streaming.

It's always best to check listings and one's cable or satellite service provider's policies for more information on how to live stream specific channels.

With all of these options, now NBA fans can watch to see if the Warriors and Cavaliers are again the teams to beat, or some new contenders step up this season!
