How to Watch NBA All-Star Game Online: Live Stream, Free Streaming
Luckily, you don’t need cable to watch the NBA All-Star Game this year. Below are a couple of services that let you watch the NBA All-Star Game online.
1. Watch NBA All-Star Game on SlingTV
SlingTV gets you online access to dozens of live TV channels, including TNT. With SlingTV’s cheapest tier, Sling Orange, you’ll be able to live stream the NBA All-Star Game online, through smart TVs using the Sling App, or through connected devices like Roku.
Better still, SlingTV has a three-day free trial right now, meaning new users can watch the NBA All-Star Game for free online. After your free trial has ended, a SlingTV subscription costs $35 a month (unless you cancel before three days, of course).
2. Hulu + Live TV
Hulu + Live TV is another live TV streaming service, but it also includes everything you get with a regular Hulu subscription, as well as access to ESPN+ and Disney+ for free. You’ll be able to live stream the NBA All-Star Game online, and then you can catch up on exclusive series like Killing Eve and The Book of Boba Fett.
Hulu + Live TV costs $69.99 a month, which is a fair price considering that you get live TV streaming and content from three popular streaming services. Sadly, however, Hulu + Live TV does not offer a free trial.
