The NBA is back and you have a few options in Canada to catch all the high-flying action your way.
Before the coronavirus pandemic changed our way of life, you may recall the small matter of the Toronto Raptors winning the 2019/20 NBA Championship. It feels a long time ago now, but the Canadian team of course produced that stunning run that culminated in a dethroning of the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
It means the NBA has never been more popular than it is right now in the Great White North as the Raptors prepare to try to defend their title in the league’s Disney World bubble. In a nice collaborative move during the COVID-19 lockdown, TSN and Sportsnet showed replays of Toronto’s entire run through last year’s playoffs.
As most Canadian sports fans would be well aware, watching your favourite team or league live during the season is not always easy. With the NBA resuming on July 31, we break down the viewing options for you here.
Like many parts of the world, sports fans are watching significantly less traditional television in Canada. You can still watch the NBA via cable TV, with a subscription to TSN or Sportsnet. But these days you also have a range of streaming options. Read on for more information.
Sportsnet has established its own streaming service, SN NOW. The app is available via the iOS App Store and Google Play, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Amazon Fire TV and PlayStation 4. Your options start from $9.99 for a 7-day pass or $19.99 for a monthly subscription. In a normal year it has access to 41 regular season Raptors games, plus loads of other live sports content. It also boasts a range of special features, like Split-screen View and Video on-Demand.
A day pass costs $4.99 or a monthly pass is $19.99, plus applicable taxes. TSN Direct gives you access to all 5 TSN feeds. You can also sign up for 6 months for $99.95, giving you a 1-month discount. The same terms apply to the French-language streaming service, RDS Direct. You can cancel at any time. Available to watch on up to 2 devices, it is compatible with desktops, Apple TV, Samsung SmartTV, Xbox One and the iOS App Store and on Google Play.
If you are new to NBA League Pass, there’s a free 7-day trial. League Pass was free to preview during the coronavirus pandemic, but is now available for $28.99/month or a heavily discounted $32.99 for the season. Take note, $139.99 is the standard annual subscription price (subject to change) and will be the renewable price next season unless you cancel. It excludes Raptors games as well as games available on national broadcasts.
