Watching the Cavs FAQ

Can I watch the Cavs on ESPN+?

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

Can I watch the Cavs on NBA League Pass?

It depends where you live. If you live within the Cavs viewing territory, you can’t watch the Cavs on NBA League Pass. In the Cleveland area, Cavs games on NBA League Pass will be blacked out in favor of Bally Sports Ohio. However, out-of-market Cavs 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 Cavs game on Sling TV?

If you live in the Cleveland area, you can’t watch most Cavs games on Sling TV because the platform doesn’t carry Bally Sports Ohio. When the Cavs are on ESPN, or TNT, you can watch the game on Sling TV Orange. If you live out-of-market, you can watch the Cavs on Sling TV by adding NBA League Pass.
