Cord cutters: best service to watch the Pelicans?
It’s that time of the year to have this conversation.

I have Cox, but I’m pretty much over their billing ($237). I noticed YouTubeTV doesn’t carry Bally’s, and is already $65. What service do you have? I don’t want to drop Cox just to have multiple services that add up to almost $237.

TLDR: I know Cox has you by the balls if you want Pels, so do you bite the bullet, or do you just do illegal stream?

Yeah it sucks not having the games on cable. I went on the illegal streams for a year and definitely watched less games. The quality is hit or miss and half the time you end up watching the other team’s broadcast crew which can be intolerable in combination.

My recommendation is just bone up and keep your cable if you want the best experience.

I live in Tampa so I never get the games. I just google reddit nba streams and usually find a decent site to watch.

I’ve been looking to do the exact same, I think me and you have the same Cox subscription because I pay the same. Haven’t been successful in finding anything besides illegal streaming

The only other option would be to use the fox sports app but you would need someone’s login information

I'm in the same boat.

Been traveling a good bit for work the last couple years and used to use League Pass plus a VPN, but moved to HeHe Streams, which was a godsend, perfect HD quality home and away streams, never any quality problems, with DVR and archives of all games going back years.....Then he shut it down a month ago.

Not really wanting to go back to all the trouble of League Pass + VPN, but most streams, including NBA Bite are unreliable, so I'm curious what others do as well.

ATT TV, now DirecTV again, is pretty good. I’ve been able to watch all the games I’ve wanted to.

i haven't been in that game for a while now, but have you looked at Sling and HuluTV. FUBOTV is probably the best streaming service out there for sports, but i'm not sure if they have Bally yet. Seems Bally are a bunch of shitheads trying to strong arm every cable provider in the country so they can just have their own streaming service you can subscribe to, but i dont know who the hell is paying $23/month to watch their local basketball or baseball team when you could just get NBA or MLB league pass and run a VPN. League pass for just the Pels is $10/month.

It's 2021. Everyone under 40 uses "illegal streams" because it's easy, free and there are no repercussions to worry about.

If you need a site or a stream, I have atleast 5 sites that I use regularly and I'll help you with a link.

My problem with the illegal streams is getting them to play on my tv.

I can do it on the phone but on the TV, half the time, I can't get rid of the popups or it doesn't play correctly.

Do you have a chromecast so that you can just cast the feed to your TV?

I’ve never had any issues finding a good stream for any game. And I don’t have the best fastest internet.
