    I've recently got rid of my cable provider (At&t) and now stream on either my Roku tv, smart tv, or firesticks throughout the house. We have tried using Hulu TV, Directv Now, Sling TV sports (blue & orange), among others to try and get Fox Southwest for the Houston area but continue to get the Dallas area coverage.

    Do any of you guys know what avenue I can take to get our local area channel rather than sh***y Dallas area channels?

    Thanks in advance.

    Being outside of the Houston area, you are now eligible for NBA League Pass. Of course, they still black out all nationally televised games including those on ESPN, TNT, and NBA FREAKING TV. I did it for a year and got so frustrated at having half my games, and all the good ones, blacked out. On top of that their feed to any kind of quality TV went in the toilet; it was lagging and freezing all the time. MLB TV is miles better. Just stick it to Adam Silver like everyone else does and google "NBA reddit streams". Bootleg that crap until they decide to give Houston a championship again.

    That's the thing, I'd rather watch it on my TV over a tablet or laptop.

    I don't think I can search a link from the TVs I currently have. Right?

    Bummer

    That's exactly why I haven't tried NBA League Pass. I wouldn't want to pay all that money to get blacked out for half the games as it is.

    True dat. My son is also getting a PS4 for Christmas so I may be able to use that as a streaming option.

    Thanks guys for the guidance.

    Xbox, PS or just HDMI to your tv as others have alluded to.

    If there’s an acestream link to the game then it’s just as if you had a cable provider.

    I finally installed my Chromecast device.

    Any good recommendations on what to search on Reddit to find the streams for each game?

    This is what I use through Xbox/PlayStation. Of course today’s game is on ABC so cordcutters can watch it if you have an HDTV antenna.

    If you get a chrome cast you can cast it to your TV from the chrome browser on your laptop

    Edit: seems like you're already using it

    As many adblock extensions as you can reddit nba streams on google. Get a HDMI cable to put your laptop on bigscreen and enjoy. Havent had cable in years and yet I'm always able to watch the games and shows I want at my leisure.

    Yes! This seems to be the legit answer now! Do you like it? Is there lag? What’s the visual quality?
