Watch Every Thunder Game This Season
- Oklahoma City Thunder TV Market: throughout Oklahoma
- Best Solution when inside their TV Market: Watch on Bally Sports Oklahoma through the DIRECTV STREAM streaming service (sign up online). A few games will be exclusive to TNT which DIRECTV STREAM carries.
- Best Solution when living Outside the Thunder TV Market: Watch nearly all Thunder games on NBA League Pass (sign up online). The Thunder have a few nationally televised games on ESPN, ABC, and TNT which won’t be on NBA League Pass. Read on to learn how to watch those nationally televised games.
What Channel Are The Thunder On
Where you can watch the Oklahoma City Thunder depends on whether or not you live inside the Oklahoma City Thunder TV market ( throughout Oklahoma). If you live inside that market, you can watch every Thunders game with a streaming service that carries Bally Sports Oklahoma and TNT. However, if you live outside that market, you will need a subscription to NBA League Pass, and a streaming service that carries ESPN, ABC, and TNT. Let’s take a look at your options based on where you live.
Watching Thunder Games In-Market
If you live in the Thunder TV market, you can watch most Thunder games on Bally Sports Oklahoma, the Thunder regional sports network, but you need TNT as well.
DIRECTV STREAM is a live streaming service that carries Bally Sports Oklahoma for those living in their broadcast region and TNT. However, you must subscribe to their “Choice” package for $108.99 per month. You can sign up online. They don’t force you into a contract, and you can cancel at any time. DIRECTV STREAM also carries ESPN, NBA TV, ABC, and TNT, which are all the networks that air nationally televised NBA games.
The service also includes a cloud DVR service and allows you to simultaneously stream to an unlimited number of devices in the home, and up to 3 outside the home. DIRECTV STREAM is supported on Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, iOS, Android, Roku, and more. See our review of DIRECTV STREAM for more details on this streaming service.
Bally Sports has a direct-to-customer streaming service called Bally Sports Plus. Bally Sports+ carries Oklahoma City Thunder games airing on Bally Sports.

You are most likely outside the intended TV market if you do not see Bally Sports+ available on BallySportsPlus.com or within the Bally Sports app. You won’t have access to all the channels you get with DIRECTV STREAM, but it’s a cheaper way to watch Bally Sports Oklahoma.
Watching Thunder Games Outside of Their TV Market
If you live outside the Thunder market, then most games will be available with a subscription to NBA League Pass. The exception is Thunder games nationally broadcast on ESPN and TNT. To watch those games, you need a streaming service that carries those channels; like DIRECTV STREAM, Hulu Live TV, or YouTube TV. I cover these services below.
NBA League Pass
To watch most Thunder games if you live outside the Oklahoma City market, you will need NBA League Pass. NBA League Pass will show every Thunder game except the one exclusively airing nationally on ESPN. NBA League Pass also provides access to NBA TV, so you are covered when they broadcast the occasional Thunder game.
NBA League Pass provides three ways to subscribe:
- Team Pass – Watch live, out-of-market games for the Oklahoma City Thunder for $13.99 per month or $89.99 per year.
- League Pass – Watch live, out-of-market games for the Oklahoma City Thunder and every other team for $14.99 per month or $99.99 per year.
- Premium League Pass – Watch live, out-of-market games for every team for $22.99 per month or $149.99 per year. (commercial-free)

- They are being broadcast on ESPN, ABC, or TNT. (NBA TV is included with a subscription to NBA League pass.
- They are being broadcast where you live on the regional sports network’s broadcast area that owns the rights to air NBA games in your area. You will need a streaming service that carries your regional sports network like DIRECTV STREAM (sign up), to watch those games.
The Thunder Game on TNT, ESPN, and ABC
DIRECTV STREAM, Hulu Live TV, or YouTube TV carry TNT, ABC, and ESPN so you can watch nationally broadcast Thunder games. Note that NBA TV is included with a subscription to NBA League Pass.
