The Best Way to Watch Live NBA Basketball Games Without Cable in 2018-2019

Best Way to Watch Every NBA Team without Cable

We picked the best live TV streaming services for each NBA team so you won’t miss a single game. Don’t subscribe to one until you check your favorite team’s schedule.

Local Market Broadcasts

Most National Basketball Association (NBA) telecasts will air on your Regional Sports Network (RSN). If you follow your hometown team, more than 80% of their games will air on your local RSN.

To watch your RSN online without cable, you will need a subscription to one of the major Live TV Streaming Services.

Once you subscribe, you will be able to stream your local NBA games on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon, Fire TV, Chromecast, iOS, and Android.

You can stream 25 of 30 NBA teams locally on Live TV Streaming Services.

You won't be able to stream Denver Nuggets, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, or Utah Jazz games in your local market.

In Canada, we suggest checking out Sportsnet NOW for 100+ NBA games including 42 Toronto Raptors games this season.

Overflow Channels

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

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.
