Overflow Channels

Some games that appear on overflow channels may require you to watch on Fox Sports Go or NBCSports App.

If you’re looking for your Fox Sports RSN, it was recently rebranded to Bally Sports. Channels like Fox Sports Florida are now Bally Sports Florida. Hornets games will be on Bally Sports Southeast, since they are no longer having a separate Fox Sports Carolinas channel.

Nationally Televised Broadcasts

Nationally televised games that don’t air on your team’s RSN may air on ESPN, TNT, or ABC. You can get these channels on the lowest tier of every live streaming service except for fuboTV.

Most of these games will air exclusively on these channels and won’t be available on your local RSN. You’ll also need these channels to get NBA Playoff games and the NBA Finals.

NBA TV broadcasts ~100 non-exclusive games per year.

For the general NBA fan, this is a good option to see teams that play outside of your home market.

You won’t be able to watch your local team though, as games of teams in your local market will be blacked out if the game is also being broadcast on your local RSN.

Out-of-Market Broadcasts

If you live away from your favorite team, you can still catch nearly every game. The NBA offers NBA League Pass online for $200 to watch every team or $120 to watch a single team’s games.

For $250, you can watch all the games with an in-arena stream during commercial breaks.
