I'm new to streaming I used to watch games on Sky but long story short i don't have it anymore. So I've turned to the internet to get my NBA fix. I know of NBA League pass but the playoff package has expired and I don't want to spend over $100 just to watch the Playoffs. (I'll probably get it next season.) And I know of Ballstreams too but that seems just as bad this late in the season. Are there any other ways? I don't mind paying but would prefer High Quality streams since i'll be projecting it on to my TV.. I've also tried sites such as VIPBOX but those streams are pixelated and laggy plus full of ads and Betting sites like TAB.co.nz the video is too small for anyone's liking. Any Help would be appreciated

Check out Sling.tv

Not sure if they have NBA specifically but they have ESPN which will probably cover games.

It's also a tech forum. There are many ways to get around geo-blocking.

Ballstreams is a paid alternative.

Acestream urls are against the FUG

I wasnt after specific links but more after different ways I could watch the NBA. So far the only ways are League Pass, Ballstreams or using a VPN to change your location

How does that work? "Buy into our league pass account" wouldn't that sign the other user out? Have you tried it and does it work?

Lol, I'd say half of Geekzone are using geo-unblockers to view overseas content.

You want to stream the NBA, it ain't gona happen 'legally' from NZ, so either adopt a workaround to view an official source offshore or make do with a dodgy stream.

Bro, Ballstreams was only $29USD for the whole post season. The HD stream is pretty flawless. Been watching all the games at work.

And what's also cool (for me) is that there's a Ballstreams Roku channel.

Why not? you can get nba pass in NZ or is it unstreamable?

slight side not: I swear last time i looked 6 months ago it was ~NZ$300 for the premium, but now its only $73.

I'm going to wait until next season before purchasing a subscription. Because its a bit too late now in the season. Ballstreams seems to be the way to go
