    Default Living in the USA, watching the Raptors

    Any other Raptors fans living in the US? I just moved south and am wondering how I'm going to watch Raptors games this year. If I subscribe to NBA TV I'd get the local version, I imagine. I do have a VPN so I can rout my internet through Canada - could I get games that way?

    Anyone else who's figured this out, any help would be appreciated.

    cheers

    I think you're shit out of luck for nba tv canada and you're going to need to start wearing the gold and purple lol

    no nba feeds are available and nba tv canada's rights are either under rogers or bell

    unfortunately no 'alternative' online nba tv canada feed is available.

    Just buy League pass, sir.

    Link: http://www.nba.com/leaguepass/broadband/

    It's only $129.99 for full season ( or 5 payments of $28.99 ) to watch your 5 fav teams!

    Fuck NBA TV Canada, they sucks anyway. no offence just my 2 cents.

    You can catch all of the after game commentary on raptors.com/live.
    A lot of 'alternatives' use the canadian feed so on the occasion you'll hear the canadian broadcasting team.

    As much as nba tv canada sucks, you get used to devlin, hamilton, leo and armstrong.

    League Pass is great. Been using it for the past few seasons.

    League pass is really the only option if you're serious about following the Raptors throughout the year.

    First row sports is a much more cost effective option (free) but it's low quality, and the ads will drive you nuts.

    If some of you guys r going to use First row sports to watch Raps games then just install AdBlock on Chrome browser. Works perfect by blocking all ads :-)

    hold up on league pass
    iirc they wont show some games if blackout rules apply
    google and read about it to make sure

    otherwise you can stream it for free at various sites (in much lower quality ofc)

    Does anyone know if I live in Toronto and buy League Pass, would I be able to watch Raptors games with the use of VPN (IP scrambler program)? Or would the games still be blacked out?

    I don't have cable and have wanted to do this for a long time, but I don't want to spend $130 just to have Raptors games blacked out because of the evil corporations.

    I did that a couple seasons ago and it worked.

    Last year I watched a lot of Raps games on LP right after the live stream. You can skip commercial breaks, half-time, etc. and watch a full game in a heck of a lot less time. Also my kids are in bed by then and nobody's asking me to play trains

    He's out of market (US). He won't have any Raptors blackouts unless they play a national TV game. Hahahahahaha! Like that's gonna happen...

    Yeah it works 100%. Not that I did it last year but my evil twin did. Best part was getting opponents feeds on about a third of the games. Makes Leo seem non existent.

    I use Hola to unblock my Netflix, wonder if it'll work for LP?
    LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!

    I have League Pass on my ipad and it works great. The blackouts are awful but I use an app that changes my VPN called Tunnel Bear. It's cheap, easy and works really well. I'm not a techie guy- the Tunnel Bear app makes changing the VPN a one click process (It's $1.99 a month or $7.99 for three months). It works for League Pass and Netflix.

    Sounds great. I always PVR'd games in Ontario and started them at about half-time so I could zip through commercials, time-outs and free throws. Got through most games in about 60 minutes, which is the only way I can fit watching sports into my life. Sounds like league pass, +/- my VPN (which I already use anyways) should do the trick.

    Put me in the PVR camp. I don't have 7.5 hours a week or more to watch games, check the raps news and then spend anytime here.
