This season, Sling TV will be the best way for fans to watch the Phoenix Suns online.
Sling TV is great for new cord cutters, because it actually provides a lot of the same content as cable does. Sling TV is similar to a basic cable subscription, offering 40+ popular TV channels to subscribers (in the Sling Blue package). The difference? Price, and flexibility. At $25 per month, Sling TV is a small fraction of the price of even the most basic cable TV package. And since Sling TV is no contract, you can cancel at any time – so there’s no long-term commitment like there is with cable.

- Residents of the Arizona area can get FOX Sports Arizona as part of the Sling Blue package
- FOX Sports Arizona is home to EVERY Suns game of the regular season!

And of course, remember that Arizona residents (as well as residents of several surrounding states) can watch ALL Suns games via Sling, since FOX Sports Arizona is included with Sling Blue. SWEET!
In addition to providing a good way to watch the Phoenix Suns online, Sling TV also offers a ton of other great content. Remember, there are 40+ channels, so there are no shortage of things to watch besides Basketball.

Use PlayStation Vue to Access the Phoenix Suns Game Live Stream
PlayStation Vue is a new streaming service that will provide a decent way to watch Phoenix Suns games online this season.
Playstation Vue has plans starting from $29.99 per month. Depending on the plan you choose, you’ll get access to 50-100+ popular TV channels. The selection is pretty good, although it’s lacking on the live sports front. The only channel that Vue offers that includes live basketball is TNT and ESPN. Check the full PlayStation Vue channel list to see complete options.
Because TNT and ESPN broadcast games every week, you’ll be able to catch a few streams using Vue. Right now, Sling TV is a better option for live basketball. We’re sure that Sony has big plans for Vue, so we will keep you posted on any developments in this new service’s offerings.
Watch the Phoenix Suns Online with NBA League Pass
Recently, the NBA began offering its own online streaming service in an attempt to win back some of the customers that were moving away from cable TV. They released NBA League Pass, and so far, it’s a hit! Here’s the rundown:
- Use League Pass on your TV using a streaming player or gaming console, or on your computer or mobile device.
- Use League Pass to watch LIVE streams of all regular season games
- Miss a game? Catch a full replay on-demand, whenever you want
- Watch on-demand replays of playoff games
- Watch on-demand replays of classic NBA games from past years
- Gain one-step access via social media
One important thing to note is that local teams are BLACKED OUT from local viewers. What that means is that fans living in the Phoenix Suns’ broadcasting market will not be able to watch live Suns games, but can still watch their replays after the game airs.
NBA League Pass offers a ton of content, but it’s not the cheapest option out there. It will run you $199.99 per season, which will still save you money over a cable subscription.
If you just want to watch the Phoenix Suns online, and don’t have any interest in seeing other teams play, you can subscribe to NBA Team Pass, a single-team version of the same service. Team Pass is $80 cheaper at $119.99 per season.
Just want to catch a game or two throughout the season? Starting this year, the NBA is selling single game passes for $6.99. An NBA Single Game Pass gives you access to live streaming of one single game of your choice.
*local blackouts apply to all versions of this service*
Watch Live NBA Games FREE with Your Antenna
ABC Network is an over-the-air network that will broadcast many NBA games this season. Since it broadcasts over the air, you can pick ABC up for free, using an antenna. If you don’t have an antenna, you can get a great one for around pretty cheap. We recommend several high quality antennas in our guide.
You can also find broadcast time information on the ABC schedule. If you find that your personal schedule isn’t compatible with the broadcast schedule, you can always record the games you want to watch on a DVR, then view them at your convenience. If you take a look at our DVR comparison guide, you’ll learn more about various models and find the one that fits your needs and budget.
If you’re living outside of the United States, you qualify for NBA League Pass International. This service is almost the same as the domestic version – just better! Basically, the only difference is that, with the International version, there are no blackouts. You can use this service to watch Phoenix Suns live streams, plus keep up with all the other teams in the NBA, all season long – blackout free!
