NBA TV is Now Available to Stream As $7 a Month Standalone Subscription

With the NBA kicking off the season next week, the league is making a major change in how they distribute NBA TV. The channel, which offers original programming, highlights, and ~90 live regular season telecasts is now available without a cable or satellite subscription.

The NBA is now selling an online subscription to NBA TV for $59.99 a year (or $7 a month). The subscription includes a live feed of NBA TV across devices including Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, iOS, and Android — including all out-of-market NBA games televised on the network. Included in the package is video-on-demand access to every NBA Finals game from 2000-2019 and exclusive NBA TV shows.

Previously, you would need a Live TV Streaming Service like PlayStation Vue, fuboTV, Sling TV, or YouTube TV to access the channel. This follows the NFL, who launched a NFL RedZone standalone subscription last season, but only made it available on mobile and tablet devices.

For the 2019-2020 season, the NBA will offer four additional out-of-market packages of NBA League Pass in addition to the NBA TV plan. The prices remain unchanged from last season.

  • Team Pass: $119.99/year
  • League Pass: $199.99/year
  • League Pass Premium: $249.99/year
  • Premium + NBA TV: $309.99/year

Team Pass includes live and on-demand HD telecasts of a single team, while League Pass includes every team including those games in VR. If you upgrade to League Pass Premium, you’ll also get access to an in-arena stream during commercial breaks.

NBA TV games are blacked out on NBA League Pass, so you will need to either purchase the separate NBA TV or Premium + NBA TV subscription to get access to the games.

For those who want to stream games in their local market, you will still need a Live TV Streaming Service. While most teams are available to stream across services, Denver Nuggets (Altitude), [Los Angeles Lakes] (Spectrum), and Utah Jazz (AT&T SportsNet) aren’t available on any streaming service.
