How to watch Philadelphia 76ers games in 2019 without cable

Cord-cutting NBA fans have a number of options for streaming Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and the 76ers this season.

Does the next step in The Process take the team to the NBA Finals? 

The Philadelphia 76ers came tantalizingly close to making it to the NBA Finals last season. With Kawhi Leonard having returned to the Western Conference, the Sixers are favorites in the East this year along with the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics. Led by Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, the team also signed Al Horford away from the Celtics to bolster their front court. If Embiid can stay healthy and the team takes care of the ball, the 76ers could be looking at their first NBA Finals appearance since the Allen Iverson-led squad from 2001.

Sixers fans have a number of ways to watch the team's games live this season without a cable or satellite TV subscription. Most live TV streaming services carry the regional sports network that broadcasts the team's games in the Philly market. Out-of-market fans can subscribe to NBA League Pass to watch the team's games live. Plus, the 76ers will make regular appearances on national NBA broadcasts, which are shown on ABC, ESPN, TNT and NBA TV.

Stream 76ers games live in Philadelphia

In 2019, 76ers games will be shown on NBC Sports Philadelphia, an RSN available only in Philly markets. Of the major live TV streaming services, AT&T TV Now and Sling TV are the only two that do not carry NBC Sports Philadelphia. Check out your cord-cutting options below for the packages that carry NBC Sports Philadelphia. I've also included information for ABC, ESPN, TNT and NBA TV for live national broadcasts. Not every service carries every local network, however, so check each one using the links below to make sure it carries ABC and NBC Sports Philadelphia in your area.

Out-of-market live streaming of 76ers games

If you outside the Philly market, then you can't get NBC Sports Philadelphia. You can, however, stream 76ers games live with an NBA League Pass subscription. Or resign yourself to watching the team only when it's featured on a national NBA broadcast.

With NBA League Pass, your local team's games are blacked out along with nationally televised games. You can watch all out-of-market games (unless they're on ESPN, TNT or another national broadcast) for $250 for the season (or $40 a month) with no commercials, or $200 for the season (or $29 a month) with commercial breaks. You can sign up to watch only your favorite out-of-market team's games for $120 for the season (or $18 a month). Or you can get just NBA TV for the channel's coverage of the league and the live games it shows for $60 a year or $7 a month. NBA League Pass is supported on a number of devices.
