The 2020/21 NBA preseason games begin today, with some blockbuster encounters - like the LA Clippers vs. LA Lakers - set to take place. However, unlike the regular NBA season and playoff matches, fans might encounter some difficulty regarding the platforms on which they watch can watch these matches. We will address that concern in this article.

NBA TV will broadcast eight games during the 2020/21 NBA preseason, while ESPN will carry four matchups, with TNT showing two games. Some of those NBA games will be blacked out locally, and those will be carried on your local RSN or team’s website.

The league revealed its NBA preseason schedule last month, according to which each team will play a minimum of two and a maximum of four games. Each team is also required to play at least one home and away game each. The 2020/21 NBA preseason will consist of a total of 49 games. 

For those who want to stream games in their local market, you will still need a live TV streaming service. Which service you should choose really depends on what team you follow.

For teams carried on NBC Sports-owned RSNs like the Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors, and the Sacramento Kings, you have multiple options to stream like Hulu Live TV, fuboTV, YouTube TV, and Sling TV.

Games for the Houston Rockets, carried by AT&T SportsNet Southwest, and the New York Knicks, carried by MSG, can be streamed on fuboTV.

Since YouTube TV, Hulu, Sling TV, and fuboTV each dropped Fox Sports RSNs this year, you will need the AT&T TV NOW Max Plan ($80) to stream games of the remaining NBA teams.
