Watching the Charlotte Hornets FAQ
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.”
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.
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.
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.
