Two live TV streaming services, DIRECTV STREAM and Bally Sports Plus, carry Bally Sports Southeast, which is the regional sports network that broadcasts Grizzlies games to local fans in Nashville, and across parts of the southeast. Our top pick for live streaming Grizzlies basketball is DIRECTV STREAM “Choice.”
Table of Contents
With DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” Grizzlies fans can watch regional NBA, MLB, and NHL broadcasts on Bally Sports Tennessee & Southeast, as well as popular national games, such as the NBA on TNT series with Charles Barkley, Shaq, and Kenny “the Jet” Smith. Bally Sports Plus only broadcasts a single channel to each of its regions, and lacks ABC, ESPN, and TNT, which leaves a significant hole in its NBA coverage. DIRECTV STREAM supports more streaming devices than Bally Sports Plus, including Roku and Amazon devices.
The most important channels for Grizzlies fans
