Looking for a live stream of any NBA Vegas Summer League game? There are a handful of different options to watch, even if you don’t have a cable subscription.

The games from Vegas will be broadcast on either NBA TV, ESPN, ESPN 2, or ESPN U (you can click here for the complete schedule). If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a television, you can still watch every broadcast via an over-the-top streaming service, which allows you to stream a handful of channels live on your computer, phone or other device for a monthly fee.

And with the steady rise of these services, cable-cutters have plenty of different options to choose from: Sling TV is my personal recommendation due to its price point, but DirecTV Now and PlayStation Vue also offer some different pros and cons.

Here’s a rundown of what these live streaming services provide, and how to sign up to start watching the 2017 NBA Vegas Summer League:


Cheapest Option: Sling TV

If price is your No. 1 priority for a streaming service, there’s no doubt that Sling TV is the way to go. ESPN and ESPN 2 are available with the “Sling Orange” bundle at just $20 per month, while NBA TV and ESPN U are both a part of the “Sports Extra” add-on, which is only $5 extra.

Another pro for Sling TV is the ability for more customization. While other services offer more channels in their base bundles, Sling has a variety of different add-on bundles, such as the aforementioned “Sports Extra,” for just $5 or $10 extra per month.

With that in mind, here’s a rundown of “Sling Orange” plus “Sports Extra”:

Total Channels Included: 40-plus, depending on local channels available. You can find the complete channel list right here

Price: $25 per month

Extras: Watch on one device at once (If you do “Sling Blue” plus “Sports Extra,” which also includes NBA TV, you get three devices at once but its $35 per month); 50 hours of cloud DVR is $5 per month extra (restrictions with certain channels)

Free Trial: 7 days

Most Channels: DirecTV Now

DirecTV Now’s cheapest bundle that includes ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN U and NBA TV, “Go Big”, comes in at $60 per month, but if you’re more concerned with a larger channel lineup and are willing to pay a little extra, this is certainly the way to go.

Here’s a complete rundown of DirecTV Now’s “Go Big” bundle:

Most Streams At Once: PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue’s cheapest bundle with ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN U and NBA TV, “Core,” comes in at $45 per month and doesn’t have nearly as many channels as DirecTV Now’s equivalent package.

However, there are also some important advantages, such as included DVR and the ability for users to watch on five separate devices at once, which is more than any other service. Ultimately, it comes down to how much you’re willing to pay and what features you value more.

Here’s a look at the “Core” bundle:

Total Channels Included: 55-plus, depending on local channels available. You can find the complete channel list here

Price: $44.99 for select markets

4. Enter your payment information. The “Core” package is the cheapest of those three packages at $44.99 per month. If you cancel your subscription within five days of signing up, you will not be charged

5. Return to the PlayStation Vue website to start watching on your desktop. You can also watch via the PlayStation Vue app, which is available via a handful of different mobile or streaming devices. You can click here for the complete list of compatible devices
