    "Direct TV's online streaming functions, including those that you'd use to stream the NBA and other sports leagues, still need some work. You'll run into less ads and pop-ups than you would with free streams, but these paid streams are still not sufficiently reliable or flexible - some devices and players that you'd expect to work are not fully supported. The company needs to work on this if they want to compete against free resources - why pay for something that's barely better than what you can get for free?"

    "TNT is definitely not the BEST for watching NBA games online. Reason being you have to pay a good amount to be able to watch it. Also TNT is not strictly NBA it has a bunch of other shows and movies, you should consider the actual NBA season pass, or some of the free sites online."
