I really want to watch this year due to Lonzo ball.

So i'm not getting time warner so what are my alternatives?

NBA league pass? I live in LA. Do they still black home local teams?

i'm not sure what other options here. Anyone?

-International league pass + VPN
-reddit nba streams
-surprisingly youtube streams are pretty good if you can get one that flies under the radar. (The popular ones with thousands watching always get cut.)

Just had a pretty good thread on this a few weeks ago here. http://forums.lakersground.net/viewtopic.php?t=183041. I'm considering some of those options myself now.

What channel package are you on?

You have to be on at least the Choice channel package to get it.

The 2 lower packages select & entertainment won't have it.

It's channel 691 on Directv.

I don't need reddit, but I do go there for non-Laker games. You know to check out D'Lo and cry. It works surprisingly well. Just clean your PC every time you use it.

To watch Lakers games legally without cable -

If you have a family member or friend in LA that has Time Warner spectrum you can watch games, and television over the Internet using their account.

Often times people have cable TV, but never use the streaming service that comes with it. But they are paying for it.

Ask a friend, your mom whoever, if you can use your email address to set up the streaming service portion, that they are not using, but are paying for.

It may require some of their personal information like address, and account number, but thatís about it. Once you have set up your email address with the Time Warner spectrum account, you can login to Time Warner Sportsnet and watch all of their programming for free.

Also you can get other channels like ESPN and NBC, and many other cable TV channels. Thatís what Iím doing now for the past year and Iíve been able to watch just about anything I want absolutely free. Completely legal as I am part of the ďfamily packageĒ. Feels nice not receiving any cable bill at all

Spectrum Sportnet never loads for me, constant buffering, and has been overall been a pisspoor experience. Also doesn't help that you can't watch games that have already been played unless its currently airing on the channel. League pass is superior, and cheaper than any cable package since I have a VPN with unlimited subscription.

I do notice buffering during live game streaming. Usually plays back normally on game replays. I usually refresh during commercialsAnd that helps. Isnít that terrible of an issue for me.

The worst I get is the video quality will occasionally drop to SD levels. I''m streaming through wifi, though, through a lot of walls so it's hard to know if that would be resolved with a better router or a wifi extender. It usually clears up in a minute or two.

I have cable and can watch the Spectrum feed but I get tired of BillyMac and Stu so I usually watch the opponents feed.

PostPosted: Thu Oct 26, 2017 9:29 pm    Post subject: Access Sports Net Lakers

I've been a Lakers fan since the 80's and I recently switched from Directv to Xfinity and I no longer get Spectrum. I live in Pittsburgh and I've become quite used to watching Access Sportsnet Lakers and Xfinity doesn't carry the channel.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask and I can't make a new post but I was wonderingÖ

IS THERE ANY WAY FOR ME TO WATCH ACCESS SPORTSNET LAKERS?

YouTube? Kodi? I know there's the app but I'm pretty sure you have to log in with your cable password.

Appreciate any help I can get. I follow Lakers Nation for postgame and follow Lakers Film Room on twitter which is great for out of town people like me. Sorry if this isn't the right forum for the question but I figured I'd ask anyway. Go Lakers!
