Getting rid of cable doesn’t mean you have to miss out on watching the Boston Celtics during the 2017-18 NBA season. You can still watch a legal live stream, whether it’s on your computer, phone, tablet or other streaming device.

Celtics games this season (complete schedule can be found here) will be broadcast on either NBC Sports Boston (local), ESPN (national), TNT (national), NBA TV (national) or ABC (national). Fortunately for cable-cutters, all of these channels can be watched online via a cable-free, live-streaming service.

There are several different options, and which one you choose will depend on where you live.

For games that are nationally televised:

DirecTV Now’s “Live a Little” package includes ESPN (and ESPN3 for ABC games) and TNT, while the “Go Big” package adds NBA TV.

Sling TV’s “Sling Orange” package includes ESPN (and ESPN3 for ABC games) and TNT, while the “Sports Extra” add-on has NBA TV.

For games that are locally televised (if you’re in the Celtics market):

Fubo TV’s “Fubo Premier” package includes NBC Sports Boston and NBA TV.

For games that are locally televised (if you aren’t in the Celtics market):

NBA League Pass will allow you to watch all non-nationally televised, out-of-market games.

You can sign up for any of these services via the above links, and all with the exception of NBA League Pass offer a free seven-day trial, so you can try them out at no risk.
