    Default FREE Live NBA games on the internet

    http://www.livesports.co.il

    There will be a game on almost every day.

    You have to register to be able to see.

    The servers are based in Israel, so no guarantees on quality, which is not the best to begin with... But it's better than nothing.

    Smile Re: FREE Live NBA games on the internet

    I don't normally post in here (hm, actually i never posted in PD before, only did so back in the indystar days.. i only go to PD chatrooms during live games [HEY WHERE ARE THE CHATROOMS NOW?! :<]), BUT i feel so strongly for these FREE LIVE NBA GAMES on this fantabulous webby.

    For me being a pacer and NBA fanatic coming from Singapore, I hardly get to watch any Pacers games during the course of the season. The only 2 sports channels here, ESPN and Starsports, are so soccer-biased. Hence, catching my favourite team playing live is quite difficult.

    All this changed when I stumbled upon this www.livesports.co.il. Being a chinese, i totally do not understand the hebrew in this israeli site, but the hunger of watching live nba games just forced me to go and meddle around with the site and i realized it's pretty simple to get started.

    Basically, register a unique username with a password and email address, and you are good to go. After you log-in with your new account, go to the forums and go to the +LS (LiveSports) Channels Link and check the schedule for the upcoming NBA Games.

    I'm telling you it's awesome. I was apprehensive about this as I knew there was going to be some lag as my cable isn't really stable. But after 10 seconds of initial lag, the PPLive TV program -- a program you are supposed to download after registering to watch the free live feeds -- made use of some peer to peer download thinger majig and made the live feed smooth.

    The only downside is that the commentary is in chinese as most of the channels they have in there are all from China. But what i do is synchronize the radio feed and the live tv feed so that it's virtually like the real thing. I cannot tell you how much i have benefited from this amazing webby...

    Anyone with any questions just feel free to let it fly..

    This is DEFINITELY not a hoax.

    I will continue this thread later tonight when game time approaches with exact details of how to watch the game (Pacers-Heat), for the benefit of non-Hebrew speakers...

    In any case, the schedule is in english (see link in previous post) and is updated every few days. The site itself also has a forum in english where you can ask questions and all.

    In general it's broadcasted using P2P (Peer To Peer) software which means that more users makes quality BETTER (kinda like BitTorrent).

    Thank you melvyn for giving it some credibility here.

    Where do you get the radio feed from, and how do you sync it with the video feed?

    I subscribe to NBA League Pass/ Inside Ticket (that was what it was called last year) on nba.com and it allows you to listen to all the games. So what i do is i pause radio and sync it with the video feed.

    Its really not that difficult.

    Tonights games are:
    Mavericks-Spurs 8:30 PM
    Jazz-Suns 9:00 PM

    Sorry, no Pacers tonight...

    It really doesnt take much to set it up - just install the p2p softwares, and wait for the links for the game. The links show up 5 minutes before the announced time.

    It works. Really!

    yea.. the pacers vs 76ers game is showing on Channel LSN1.. but it's kind of laggy because it doesn't make use of the P2P.

    But damn heck pacers are playing like !@#$

    I clicked on that channel, but I am just getting a white square with a partial orange border. Am I missing something to make this work?

    LSN 1 is showing the spurs mavs game now. I hope its just a temporary thing.. anyway you don't have to download any programs for the LSN channels but for the LS+ channels you have to dl the p2p software.

    The programs are all listed down under the LS+ schedules web page.

    I wish I could figure this out. I think I signed up, and then logged on. However, I don't know what to do next. I can't read this site. Any tips?

    it takes 24-48 hrs for your nick to get registered and for you to watch the videos.

    anyway, channel LSN1 isn't showing the game anymore.. Ever since halftime, they've been showing the spurs game..
