All games are available at a cost via ESPN, but a selection of NBL games are accessible for free.
Finder has broken it down for you to see how each team fares in getting free-to-air coverage.
Which NBL games can I watch on free-to-air?
For the 2022/23 NBL season, games in the 2pm AEDT and 4pm AEDT time slots on Sundays are available on free-to-air.
But it varies as to which sides feature in this time slot, so some NBL teams get more free-to-air coverage than others.
NBL free-to-air breakdown
As you can see, the free-to-air schedule isn't spread evenly between NBL clubs.
The Sydney Kings get the most free-to-air coverage throughout the 2022/23 season, with 13 games available to watch at no cost.
Fans of South East Melbourne Phoenix and New Zealand Breakers should also be chuffed that they can catch 10 games for free during the season.
At the other end of the spectrum, the Cairns Taipans are the worst off, with only 4 games airing on free-to-air.
The Illawarra Hawks and Perth Wildcats are not much better, with only 5 games each airing for free.
All teams have the majority of their games available via subscription only, with the top side, Sydney Kings, only having 46% of their games on free-to-air.
Where can I watch every NBL game for my team?
If getting by on only a fraction of your team's games per season isn't acceptable to you, you can still view every game of the NBL season, but it will cost you.
