How to watch the 2017-2018 NBA season live streaming

On October 18, the NBA season starts again and can be followed live streaming on SkyGo or by purchasing the NBA League Pass

Will it be Cleveland vs. Golden State again? The 2017-2018 NBA season is just around the corner (it will start on Wednesday, October 18) and compared to last year, little seems to have changed. The favorite teams are always the same, even if the summer market has brought big news.

Kyrie Irving, Cleveland's point guard and second most representative player of the team, has asked to be traded to become the star of a new franchise. The Ohio management has accepted the player's request and sent him to Boston, the main opponent in the East, in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, one of the protagonists of the green-and-white team's ride last year. Boston also reinforced itself with the third overall pick in the 2017 Draft and with Gordon Hayward, one of the most coveted free agents. The 2017-2018 NBA season in the East will be more interesting, but also in the West the teams have been reinforced.

We start with the defending champions Golden State who had the difficult task of renewing the contracts of three of the most representative players: Curry, Durant and Iguodala. The goal was accomplished also thanks to the "discount" applied by the three players compared to the maximum they could aspire to. The other franchises have not been idle and have done everything possible to build competitive rosters. Houston has convinced Chris Paul, one of the best point guards in the league, to move to Texas, while Oklahoma has set up two trades (the technical term used for exchanges between teams) to get the Thunder Paul George and Carmelo Anthony and automatically become one of the most fearsome teams in the west. And in all this we must never forget the San Antonio Spurs of the Leonard-Popovich duo. In short, it will be another NBA season full of fun and spectacle.

To see the 2017-2018 NBA season live streaming fans will have two different possibilities: SkyGo, satellite TV's online platform, or buy the NBA League Pass and follow the games directly on the streaming platform made available by the American League. Two different possibilities and that give access to a very different number of games: on SkyGo will be broadcast a total of about 140-150 games during the year, while with the NBA League Pass you can watch over 1400 games (all those played during the year).
