For a long time, Australian NBA fans only had one option for getting their basketball fix: Foxtel. Thankfully, that's no longer the case.

Live stream NBA on Kayo: start your 14-day FREE trial now
The most common NBA games shown in Australia are shown on ESPN. If you really love the NBA the only thing better than watching a game live is attending one. Check out Finder's specially designed NBA travel guide.
Kayo Sports offers coverage of roughly seven NBA games per week, similar to the Foxtel model. You can watch both live games and replays in HD, on a variety of devices including PCs/Macs, smartphones and laptops, Chromecast, Apple TV, Android TV and Telstra TV. Kayo and Foxtel have access to games shown on ESPN.
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 14-day free trial available to new customers.
Kayo differentiates itself with the extreme amount of content that it has and special viewing tools. There's over 50 sports but also heaps of basketball programming. This includes NBL matches, NBA Draft, 2020 All-Star weekend, FIBA World Cup, NBA Playoffs, Christmas Day games, plus shows like The Jump and basketball experts Woj & Lowe's TV show.
Special viewing tools Kayo has incorporated into the platform includes SplitView, Key Moments Timeline, Interactive Stats, alternate camera angles, and Kayo Minis. SplitView is the most interesting as it allows user to watch four different sports or programs at once. Considering the NBA has games seven days a week this could ensure you don't miss out on your other favourite sports.
Kayo Minis and the Key Moments Timeline are awesome for when you're trying to catch up on the action. Minis are special condensed versions of games. While the Key Moments are handpicked highlights so you can skip to all the best bits. Right now check out ESPN's special sports streaming week.
Foxtel offers a limited selection of basketball games broadcast on ESPN. To get ESPN, you need to subscribe to the Sports Package $25/month and the base Foxtel Plus pack $49/month. Once that’s done, you can stream NBA games on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop with the Foxtel GO app. The app is free with your Foxtel subscription.
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, Android TV and the Foxtel Now Box. A 10-day free trial is available for new customers.
SBS has been able to strike a deal to broadcast two NBA games live each week for the next two seasons, plus a weekly WNBA matchup. In what's turned out to be a perfect scenario for basketball fans, the two live games SBS will air each week is set to differ from ESPN. Matches will be shown in HD on SBS Viceland and streamed live via the SBS On Demand app.
To check out SBS's games schedule see our ESPN and SBS NBA schedule. It's also important to note that SBS won't have any NBA Playoff series, All-Star weekend or the draft.
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.
