Ways to watch the Boston Celtics on a TV or Device

Post by gyso on Tue Oct 17, 2017 8:04 am

For those of us who do not live in the New England area, or for those of us who have cut the cable, there are still ways to watch the Celtics on TV.

The first line of defense is NBA League pass.  That will get you most of the games, except the nationally broadcast games on ESPN, TNT and NBA TV.  You will also not get to watch the broadcasts of which ever team is in your home's local viewing area (home or away).  I live in Charlotte, so I cannot watch any Hornets' games on NBA LP.  For our members that live in the San Fran/Oakland area, the Central FLA area or around Atlanta, you cannot watch GS Warriors, Magic or the Hawk games (resp).

NBA League Pass:

http://www.nba.com/leaguepass/

Once there, you will see something like this:



For some who want to watch many different teams, the cost is $200 or $250.  The cost for the third option (one team only) isn't shown, but it cost me just under $120.

There are many devices that you can watch the games on.  Here is a listing:



So there's option 1.  In the next post I will describe a sort of co-insurance for the "I cannot watch the Celtics blues" due to them being on so many nationally broadcast games.

The second line of defense is SlingTV:

https://www.sling.com/

SlingTV's claim to fame is being "A LA CARTE TV™️".  It has different levels of service, with more channels made available as the price increases.  You can also add individual channels for a low fee of USD $5/month.

The left is a graphic of a traditional cable or dish package and on the right is a graphic of how SlingTV works.



I have the lowest cost Orange Package with no additional channels added on.  My monthly cost after the fees are added into the mix is under USD $22/month.

This options allows me to watch the Celtics games that are broadcast on ESPN and TNT.  I do not believe that it includes NBA TV, so those games still may be even harder to get access to a broadcast to watch.

This option also streams across many devices:



And of course, you have to get the app!!



So there's option 2.  In the next post I will describe another way to watch those pesky few games that are blacked out on NBA League Pass and aren't on either of the two SlingTV channels, ESPN and TNT.

The third line of defense is getting a digital antenna and connecting it to a TV. This will allow you to watch any local channels that may carry your local team's games.

For as little as USD $10, you can get a inexpensive antenna. I actually found a bargain on Amazon for 2 used ones for USD $11.

With the small antenna, you have to have a length of co-axial cable long enough to reach a window to get the best results. Height of antenna is also a factor in the quality of reception with these smaller antennas.

Here is the one I bought:



Here is the one I want:



The ClearStream can be mounted inside, in the attic or some other place high in your home. That keeps it out of the weather. I plan to run a co-axial cable down the side of my house from the attic to the old cable TV junction box at the back of my house. There, I can split the signal and use the existing wiring to view local channels for free in all my rooms that were wired for cable. My son-in-law does this with the single ClearStream antenna (I want the double, well, just because . . .) and it works great for him.

Using an antenna to watch local channels is also how I have been able to watch a couple Patriots games. I'm in Panther territory, and they don't broadcast Patriots games as traditional Sunday fare. Unless it is a special broadcast; Thursday Night football, the late Sunday night game or Monday Night football, forget about it.

So there's option 3.  In the next post I will describe the last line of defense.

The last line of defense is live streaming on the internet.  We have some members who use this method to great success.  I will try to collect some of the links that people have provided in the Game On! threads.

Here are some that I found:

swedeinestonia wrote:http://www.besasport.top/mm1.php?extid=0011700048&view=home&cam=0

good stream if somebody needs

I hope you guys all have adblockers installed, I suggest ublock origin.

if you use firefox install from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/
if you use chrome install from here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ublock-origin/cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm?hl=en

makes it so you dont have to deal with ads, banners etc as much

You're a life-saver, again, Swede!!

How the hell do you find these?

https://www.reddit.com/r/nbastreams/ has been my goto place for streams lately


Now my goto place.

Hope you can figure out how it works, with that link you get to the mainpage where they will list upcoming streams and then in each sub thread you will find the stream links. Seem to be mostly good quality and they define home/away feed and some other things but I guess sometimes you might have to go through a few to find one that you like.

So it looks like Swede is the hero when it comes to finding live streaming links.  Keep them coming!!

So that about does it. If I've missed something or someone wants to provide any more live streaming links or tips, feel free to share your knowledge on this thread.

I'm going to post this as a sticky in the main forum for a week or two. After that, I will move it over to the Game On! forum.

Enjoy!!

A quick commentary here; Awesome Baby! (with props to Dick Vitale)

gyso is one of the great things about Sam's.

This is one of the forum's founding members, who, in addition to working at his own career every day, somehow makes the time to keep this forum running. Every day.  Believe me when I tell you there is a lot of unseen effort that goes into operating Sam's, and gyso is always right in the middle of it.  Always.  And then he adds supplemental information like the above, that we just haven't seen on other forums.  And yes, we look and compare.  If you look through the posts and instructions he's left, there is virtually no way you need to miss a game; no matter where you live!  And he does the Game On! thread too.

I'm sure I can speak for Pete as well as our moderators; gyso deserves a banner raised in his honor!

Also, if you live outside of Boston and you have Directv you can also subscribe to the sports package that includes CSNNE (about 15 bucks per month). I subscribe to both so that I can get all of the Home games with Mike and Tommy (except nationally televised games) and watch the pregame and postgame show along with other Boston sports shows throughout the week.

These may not actually connect you to a live stream for this game, but they may get you to the website. The rest is up to you.

I moved this thread here, as I always intended for it to be located with the Game On threads.

One note: Swede often posts links to live game streams at the beginning of each Game On thread. For that, we thank you. Many here depend on those links, so please keep up the great work!!!

The game tonight is on NBATV. I just went online to see if it could be added to my current package of SlingTV. It can, by adding the Sports Extra package for just $5.00 (plus tax) per month. Here are the channels that come with the package:



So now I pay $20.00 + $5.00 + $1.75 (tax) = $26.75 / month

Now I can watch the Spurs game tonight!!!

Go Celtics!!!
