In New York, the only option for watching the entire Nets season on streaming service is DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.”

DIRECTV STREAM – full local Nets coverage, Yankees, Jets, Giants

In order to gain access to the YES Network, DIRECTV STREAM requires an upgrade to its more expensive “Choice” package. Subscribing to DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” will allow fans in the NY area to watch the Nets and Yankees on YES, as well as the Knicks and Rangers on MSG, and the Mets on SportsNet NY.

DIRECTV STREAM also carries local FOX and CBS affiliates for watching the Jets and Giants.

Watch the Nets on national TV

Fubo – ABC and ESPN games

Fubo lacks YES Network and TNT, which means the service is not a great option for streaming Nets games.

Out-of-market, it is possible to watch the Nets on NBA League Pass as a premium add-on with a Fubo subscription.

YouTube TV – ABC, ESPN, and TNT

YouTube TV lacks YES Network, but carries the channels needed to watch the Nets on national TV, as well as the option to upgrade for NBA League Pass out-of-market.

Hulu + Live TV – ABC, ESPN, and TNT

Hulu + Live TV carries the necessary channels to watch the Nets on national TV – ABC, ESPN, and TNT.

Sling TV – ESPN, and TNT

Sling TV carries ESPN and TNT, but lacks ABC in most markets.


How to watch the Nets out-of-market

If you don’t live in the New York area and still want to follow the Nets, buying NBA League Pass gives you access to the Nets out-of-market. NBA League Pass can also be added to a DIRECTV STREAM, YouTube TV, Sling TV, or fuboTV subscription.
