The wait is over and the NBA is finally back. The Toronto Raptors are the defending champions and the 2019/20 season is sure to be an exciting one. Thankfully, TechRadar is here to help you get an NBA live stream for every one of the 1,230 games that will be played.

Last season, the Raptors managed to dethrone the Golden State Warriors who were the NBA champions in 2015, 2017 and 2018. The two teams played six games in a best of seven series that saw its conclusion when the Raptors beat the Warriors 114-110 in game 6. Last season was also the first time in Raptors franchise history that the team won the NBA championship.

This season the Los Angeles Clippers are the favorites to win the 2020 title after signing former-Raptor Kawhi Leonard and trading for Paul George. The LA Lakers currently hold the second top spot for the tipsters ahead of the Milwaukee Bucks, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Houston Rockets.

Lucky for you, you won’t have to miss any of the 1,230 regular season games with our guide to live stream the NBA from anywhere in the world (even during blackouts). Keep reading and we’ll show you exactly how to watch every game on your TV, favorite streaming devices and even on mobile.

How to stream the NBA live online
Although there are now a number of options for streaming the NBA online (which will go into further detail about below), avid basketball fans need to look no further than NBA League Pass.

If you want to follow your favorite team all season long or even if you want to keep up with every team in the league, the NBA’s own streaming service is our first choice for streaming basketball online.

With NBA Team Pass, you get access to every live game for one team with full replays and audio broadcasting available as well for $119.99/£99.99 a year. NBA League Pass gives you the same coverage but instead of having access to just one team’s games, you can watch live games for every team in the NBA for $199.99/£184.99. Basketball fans who want the complete package though will have to sign up for NBA League Pass Premium which gives you access to all teams and in-arena streams for $249.99/£214.99 a year.

NBA League Pass offers the most content by far but there is a catch, NBA blackouts still apply so you won’t be able to view local games live. Don’t worry though as we’ll show you exactly how to get around these restrictions below.

Live stream NBA during blackout games (and from anywhere)
If there is no official broadcast option in your country, a game is not playing locally due to an NBA blackout or you’re looking to make the most of that NBA League Pass subscription, then you’ll need to use a VPN service to dial in to a location in the US (or outside of the US if your streaming basketball via the international version of NBA League Pass) that does have coverage.

A VPN is perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location.
