Watching the Bulls FAQ

Can I watch the Bulls on ESPN+?

No, you can’t watch the Chicago Bulls on ESPN+. ESPN+ doesn’t have the rights to air any NFL or NBA games.

Can I watch the Bulls game on Peacock?

No, you can’t watch the Chicago Bulls game on Peacock. Many sports fans in Chicago are confused about whether they can watch the Bulls on Peacock because Peacock is owned by NBC Universal and broadcasts NBC Chicago News. However, Peacock does not carry NBC Sports Chicago, which is the channel Bulls fans in the Chicago area need to live stream games.

Can I watch the Bulls on NBA League Pass?

It depends where you live. If you live within the Bulls viewing territory, you can’t watch the Bulls on NBA League Pass. In the Chicago area, Bulls games on NBA League Pass will be blacked out in favor of NBC Sports Chicago. However, out-of-market Bulls fans can watch the team on NBA League Pass all season long. You can signup for NBA League Pass à la carte on Amazon Prime, or the package can be added to an existing YouTube TV, Sling TV, fuboTV, or DIRECTV STREAM account.

Can I watch the Bulls game on Sling TV?

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

Can I watch the Bulls on Marquee Sports Network?

No, the Marquee Sports Network broadcasts Cubs games, not Bulls games.
