Can I watch NBA All-Star 2021 live on NBA League Pass?

The answer to this question is that it depends on where you’re watching from.

US and Canada-based subscribers to League Pass, the NBA’s online platform which allows viewers to stream games live and on-demand, won't be able to use the service to watch All-Star 2021 as it happens.

However, international subscribers will be able to tune in live using League Pass.

Blackout restrictions in the US and Canada

Viewers in the US and Canada cannot use League Pass to watch All-Star 2021 live because of blackout restrictions, which occur when local or national networks in the countries have "certain exclusive rights to televise live games and content", the NBA says.

Subscribers can use their League Pass to listen live to the audio of blacked-out matches, which the NBA says "will be available for viewing after the game has concluded".

More information on blackout restrictions is available here.

Which channels are broadcasting All-Star 2021 in the US and Canada?

In the US, All-Star 2021 will be broadcast live on TNT and TBS. In Canada, the event will be on SNE, SNO, SNP and TSN.
