Pacers Live Stream

Getty The Indiana Pacers finished 9th in the Eastern Conference last year.

The Indiana Pacers are looking to improve upon a 2020-21 season that saw them miss the playoffs after finishing with a 34-38 record.

In 2021-22, most Pacers games will be televised in local markets on Bally Sports Indiana, while some games will be nationally televised on NBA TV (may be out of market only, but those will also be on Bally Sports Indiana), TNT or ESPN.

But if you don’t have cable, here’s a guide on how you can watch a live stream of every Pacers game live online in 2021-22, including options for both in-market and out-of-market viewers:

If You’re in the Pacers Market

DirecTV Stream

This is the only streaming service that includes Bally Sports Indiana

DirecTV Stream has four different channel packages: “Entertainment,” “Choice,” “Ultimate” and “Premier.” ESPN and TNT are included in all of them, while Bally Sports Indiana (live in local markets) and NBA TV are included in “Choice” and up.

You can sign up right here:

Or you can watch on your computer via the DirecTV Stream website.

If you can’t watch live, DirecTV Stream also comes with 20 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to unlimited hours).


If You’re Out of the Pacers Market

Amazon Prime’s NBA League Pass Channel

Note: This is ultimately the same as regular NBA League Pass (more info on that below), but with this option you’ll be able to watch games on the Amazon app, which tends to be available on more devices than the NBA app

Amazon Prime subscribers (Prime comes with a 30-day free trial) can watch every out-of-market NBA game via Prime Channels. You can try both Amazon Prime and the NBA League Pass channel at no cost with a free trial:

NBA League Pass on Amazon Prime

You can also watch on your computer via the Amazon website.


NBA League Pass

Again, this is mostly the same as the Amazon Prime option above, with the big difference being you’ll watch on NBA’s platforms rather than Amazon’s:

NBA League Pass

Once signed up for NBA League Pass, out-of-market viewers can watch Pacers games live or on-demand on the NBA app, which is available on your Roku, Roku TV, Amazon Fire TV or Firestick, Apple TV, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or 5, iPhone, Android phone, iPad, Android tablet or other compatible device.

Pacers Season Preview 2021-22

The Pacers averaged 115.3 points a game last season, which was 6th in the NBA, but their defense left a lot to be desired. Indiana allowed an average of 115.3 points a game to opposing teams, which ranked 25th. The team won’t have an easy go of it out of the gate, either.

Indiana has 11 road games in its first 17 contests, and several players, including T.J. Warren, Caris LeVert, Malcolm Brogdon, Jeremy Lamb and Justin Holiday have all missed time this preseason due to various injuries.

“We’re going to be OK,” Carlisle said, via The Indy Star. “The start of the season is very difficult. We’re dealt a hand we’re dealt. When you coach in this league, you’ve got to have a strategy for adversity, and our strategy is, we’re going to focus on what we have and not what we don’t have.”

The Pacers have the core of the roster returning this year, led by big man Domantas Sabonis, who averaged 20.3 points, 12 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game last year.

“He’s a special talent,” LeVert said of Sabonis, via Forbes. “He finishes great around the basket, he has great hands. He’s a great passer. It’s going to be important for us to keep growing, it’s [chemistry] grown so much since I’ve gotten here, and I think you can see that just watching. Each and every game, each and every rep and possession I think it gets better.”

Here’s a look at the notable offseason moves, roster, and projected starting lineup for the Pacers for the 2021-22 NBA season:

Notable Additions: Chris Duarte (No. 13 pick in 2021 NBA Draft), Isaiah Jackson (No. 22 pick in 2021 NBA Draft), Torrey Craig (free agency), Keifer Sykes (free agency)

Notable Exits: Aaron Holiday (trade), JaKarr Sampson (free agency)

Pacers Roster: T.J. Warren, Domantas Sabonis, Caris LeVert, Myles Turner, Malcolm Brogdon, Brad Wanamaker, Kelan Martin, Goga Bitadze, Isaiah Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, Oshae Brissett, Torrey Craig, T.J. McConnell, Justin Holiday and Chris Duarte.
