Although Bally Sports Plus, Fubo, and DIRECTV STREAM all carry BallySports Southeast, the regional sports network that broadcasts Hornets games to local fans in North Carolina, DIRECTV STREAM is our top pick for watching the Hornets.

How to watch the Charlotte Hornets on DIRECTV STREAM

OFFERS COMPLETE IN-MARKET COVERAGE.

The DIRECTV STREAM library of regional sports networks, Bally Sports Southeast included, is available in the more expensive “Choice” package, but not in the base package.

In addition to Hornets broadcasts, Charlotte sports fans will be able to tune in to Atlanta Braves games on Bally Sports Southeast.

DIRECTV STREAM also carries Bally Sports Carolina for watching the Hurricanes and the channels you need to live stream ACC football, including UNC and NC State, and NFL games.

How to watch the Hornets on Fubo

Fubo carries the channels NBA fans in North Carolina need to watch the Hornets, except for TNT.

In the southeast, Fubo carries ACC Network in the base package, which means complete coverage of UNC basketball and Duke basketball all the way through March Madness.

Watching the Charlotte Hornets FAQ

Can I watch the Hornets game on Bally Sports Plus?

You can watch some Hornets games on Bally Sports Plus, but it isn’t a complete solution. If you live in Charlotte or Raleigh, you can watch the Hornets on Bally Sports Plus only when Bally Sports Southeast has the game. Out-of-market fans can’t watch the Hornets on Bally Sports Plus and Bally Sports Plus will be blacked out when the Hornets are on ABC, ESPN, or TNT. If you want access to every Hornets game, DIRECTV STREAM carries every game from one platform, or you can add a Bally Sports Plus subscription to fuboTV, Hulu, or YouTube TV for roughly the same price as DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.”

Can I watch the Hornets on Sling TV?

Only out-of-market and some national broadcasts. If you live in the Charlotte area, you can’t watch most Hornets games on Sling TV because the platform doesn’t carry Bally Sports Southeast or ABC. When the Hornets are on ESPN, or TNT, you can watch the game on Sling Orange. If you live out-of-market, you can watch the Hornets on Sling TV by adding NBA League Pass.

Can I watch the Hornets on YouTube TV?

Only out-of-market and some national broadcasts. If you live in the Charlotte area, you can’t watch most Hornets games on YouTube TV because the platform doesn’t carry Bally Sports Southeast. When the Hornets are on ABC, ESPN, or TNT, you can watch the game on YouTube TV. If you live out-of-market, you can watch the Hornets on YouTube TV by adding NBA League Pass.

How can I watch the Hornets out-of-market?

There are several good options. If you don’t live in Charlotte, you can watch the Hornets out-of-market with NBA League Pass. YouTube TV, Sling, fuboTV, and DIRECTV STREAM all offer add-ons for NBA League Pass, or you can buy a subscription à la carte on Amazon.
