    Default NBA League Pass Blackouts: Raptors Games

    For this season I'm thinking about cancelling my cable subscription in favour of League Pass... If I can somehow find a way to be able to view Raptors games live Because League Pass blocks games that are being locally televised in your area.

    Does anyone have any tricks? Proxies? Whatever it may be, I just want to watch Raps games live without having to buy a shit ton of other channels that I'll never watch!

    *Yes I'm asking you to tell me how to break the law. In the name of Raptors basketball.

    Ballstreams dude, ballstreams. Subscription for a year is about what I used to pay monthly for cable, and they have high quality live streams and full games posted after the fact.

    Get in before Sept 30th and you get last year's prices too, which are about $10 cheaper.

    New donation amounts will be:

    1 Week - $12.99
    1 Month - $17.99
    3 Months - $39.99

    You can also freeze your account, that means if you pay for 1 year subscription you can stop as soon as the raptors season is done which around 6 months and then comeback next season and continue

    That's the official summary from their website. Personally, I've never had an issue streaming, the quality is good, the price is decent, and I watched more non-Raptors NBA games than ever before just because you could jump onto any game, even tape-delayed, once the Raps game is over or on an off night. Plus you can usually pick home or away broadcast, which helps when Leo Rautins is spewing nonsense about 7 footers out there.

    The current set up cost is 89 for a year, not 99. The other time periods are between 5 and 10 dollars cheaper than the new prices.

    Do you have to get a subscription to get access to the full games posted after the fact?

    I have watched streamed games on some of the free sites and while it is good to see a game, the quality is not that great. Are these pay sites better, is it like watching the game on a regular tv feed (cable/satellite)?

    All season. And yes, you need a subscription to access any of their stuff, including live streams.

    Ballstreams is much better than the free sites. I'd put it about on par with League Pass online - probably a step below what you'd get on TV, but very good, and frankly for me it was better for the size of screen (tend to watch on my iPad leaving the TV free for the wife and tot). They have adjustable video quality as well for those with slower internet speeds.

    Ohhhh that's great! I think I'm going to get it for sure now. I'm going to miss a lot of games because of work and I rather not have to record it on tv so this is perfect. Is it a monthly fee you have to pay? Or is it just 89.99 for the year and that's it?

    Nice, I think I'm going to give Ballstreams a shot. I've been on League Pass Broadband for the past few seasons, and Raps blackouts didn't bother me too much since I tend to sit down to watch later in the evening anyway. It was the national (US) game blackouts that would get to me - some of those are on when I actually want to be watching live.

    It is a shame this Ball Streams membership is closed at the moment. Sounded like an ideal solution. I am on some waiting list so hopefully I will get in before the season starts. Otherwise I am going to have to upgrade my cable package.
