2023 NBA All-Star: How to Watch the Game, Halftime Show & Other Events Online
No cable? Streaming plans tend to be cheaper than cable, plus you don’t have to worry about renting (and returning) a cable box. The 2023 NBA All-Star Game will be streaming on platforms like SlingTV, and Fubo (Vidgo offers ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes but not TNT).
Philo is certainly a more affordable streaming option at $25 a month, but the streamer does not carry TNT. However, Sling TV has TNT and other sports, news and entertainment channels for just $20 for the first month (regular $40/month).
DirectTV Stream is another decent option for live television — it’s not very expensive and you can get perks like free HBO Max with select plans and a free trial for five days. The streaming start at $74.99/month for 75+ channels. Hulu + Live TV is around the same price for 85+ channels and access to Disney+ and ESPN+.
Sport lovers who want to stream the NBA All-Star Game internationally can do so with ExpressVPN or NordVPN. Additionally certain All-Star Weekend events can be streamed on the NBA app, including Saturday’s NBA All-Star Media Day Presented by AT&T (1 p.m. ET),
Adam Silver’s news conference on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET will air on NBA TV and stream on the NBA app. The same goes for the NBA Legends Awards on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
