How to watch live NBA games from 2021-22 season in India

The landmark 75th season of the NBA is upon us.

The historic season also marks a return to normalcy when it comes to the NBA schedule with each team back to playing 82 regular-season games, the Raptors are playing home games in Toronto and the NBA Finals have returned to their rightful time in June.

The regular season, which began on Oct. 19, will conclude on April 10 with the Play-In Tournament (April 12-15) and NBA Playoffs (April 16) to follow.

So, how can NBA fans in India catch live games?

Prior to Dec. 2, the only means to watch live NBA games on demand was by getting your NBA League Pass subscription now at the link below.

However, just over a month into the 2021-22 NBA season, it was announced that live games will return to television sets and streaming platforms in India.

Who is NBA's new broadcast partner in India?

Following the NBA's new multiyear partnership with Viacom18, live NBA games return to the television screens in India.

Live NBA games can now be watched on television on channels - Vh1 and MTV - while it can be streamed on the digital platforms like VOOT and Jio TV.

Stay tuned for the release of the broadcast schedule of NBA games on MTV or Vh1.

How to watch NBA games on NBA League Pass?

There are two choices while picking up a subscription - annual and eight-game.

The annual package presents to you every game for every team live and on-demand for a yearly subscription fee of 1500/- rupees. On the other hand, the eight-game package allows the fan to choose any eight games to watch each month for 799/- rupees.

With the 2020 NBA Finals, the NBA's five-year broadcast deal with Sony Pictures Networks (SPN) expired and with no suitable offer on the horizon, NBA League Pass had become the one-stop-shop for NBA fans in India since the beginning of the 2020-21 season.

NBA games made a brief return to the television when Star Sports bagged the rights, however, this deal was only for the 2021 NBA playoffs and the 2021 NBA Finals.

Over the first month of the 2021-22 season, NBA League Pass was once again the only place fans in India could watch live games on-demand. Fortunately, following December, that will not be the case anymore.
