Three Channels You Need for NBA All-Star Weekend and How to Stream Them

When it comes to All-Star games, the NBA is about as good as it gets. Not only is the actual game competitive (unlike the Pro-Bowl), but there’s a whole weekend of festivities leading up to the event. This makes for a fun three days of NBA.

If you’re looking to stream NBA All-Star Weekend (which kicks off at 10:30 ET this Friday), you’ll need three channels. Luckily, there are multiple ways to stream each.

NBA TV will host the following events: (all times ET)

Up until recently, NBA TV was only available through cable and satellite providers. However, those days are long gone. Now there are four ways to stream NBA TV: Sling TV, DIRECTV NOW, PlayStation Vue, and fuboTV. Each service offers various tiers of skinny bundles for a modest monthly price. Each has a free 7-day trial.

Which should you choose? Depends. Sling TV is the cheapest. Vue and fuboTV have DVRs. DIRECTV NOW offers a more cable-like experience. Whichever you opt for, they’re free for a week, so you can watch NBA TV all weekend without incurring any cost.
