Where to stream NBA online in August 2019

See every slam dunk live, at home or on-the-go.

For a long time, Australian NBA fans only had one option for getting their basketball fix: Foxtel. Thankfully, that's no longer the case. Aussies now have a variety of ways to stay caught-up with the National Basketball Association, whether it be through streaming games to a mobile device or watching live from the comfort of your couch.

Option 1: Live streaming NBA in HD with Kayo

Kayo Sports offers coverage of select NBA games, similar to the Foxtel model. You can watch both live games and replays, on a variety of devices including PCs/Macs, smartphones and laptops, Chromecast, and Telstra TV.

Users have two subscription options. You can pay $25/month to stream on two screens at the same time, or $35/month for three simultaneous streams. Whichever way you go, you can test-drive the platform with a free 14-day trial available to new customers. Just click the link below to get started.

All you need to do is download it from Google Play or the App Store and enter your Foxtel ID. You’ll be online in no time. To watch with your laptop, go to the Foxtel website.

Alternatively, basketball fans can also follow the NBA with Foxtel Now. The streaming sibling to traditional Foxtel lets you watch Foxtel channels via the Internet, no contracts require. Like regular Foxtel, to get ESPN you will need the Sport Pack, priced at $29/month. There is a catch, however – the Sports pack is a Premium Pack, so you need to subscribe to the Essentials Pack as well to be able to get it. That costs $25/month and comes with a selection of Pop and Lifestyle channels. This brings your minimum monthly spend to $54/month.

Foxtel Now is available on PCs/Macs, mobile devices, Chromecast/Airplay, PS4, Telstra TV, and the Foxtel Now Box. A two-week trial is available for new customers.

Option 3: Streaming NBA via Fetch TV

ESPN is also accessible via Fetch TV. The channel is included in the Vibe Pack, which costs $6/month. However, the total price of your Fetch subscription will depend on whether you purchase a box via a broadband provider or buy one outright.

Option 4: Streaming NBA games with the NBA League Pass

NBA League Pass is a subscription streaming service dedicated to covering the world of American professional basketball. In addition to streaming every second of every match live across the Internet, NBA League Pass serves as a single destination for all the latest news, statistics, highlights and recaps from the current NBA season.
