Today, Spectrum SportsNet announced that it will be launching its first direct-to-consumer streaming service called SportsNet+. This service will stream all in-market Lakers games for fans in California, Hawaii, and southern Nevada.
Spectrum SportsNet+ will cost $19.99 per month or $179.99 per season. Current Spectrum, DIRECTV and Cox pay TV customers who have access to Spectrum SportsNet programming will be able to watch via the Spectrum SportsNet app at no additional cost, and with authenticated access to Spectrum SportsNet+.
This new service is an experience within the NBA App and on NBA.com. There you will find this new subscription service.
Cord Cutters News has reached out to Spectrum SportsNet+ to ask about DIRECTV STREAM customers to see if they also get access.
“With the start of the NBA regular season, the launch of Spectrum SportsNet+ will allow even more fans to enjoy live Lakers games and in-depth, unique coverage of their favorite team, with or without a pay TV subscription,” said Dan Finnerty, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Spectrum Sports. “By offering a variety of packages, we’re giving fans more choice and flexibility and taking another step towards evolving the Regional Sports Network model in this new era of sports viewing.”
“This new service gives Lakers fans another way to watch their favorite team in action on the court,” said Tim Harris, President of Business Operations, Los Angeles Lakers. “The launch of Spectrum SportsNet+ brings the premium, in-depth coverage, analysis and behind-the-scenes content to more fans across the region, allowing us to reach more people every day and grow the next generation of Lakers fans.”
This new app will work on Roku, Android TV, Fire TV, PlaysStation, Fire TV, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Android mobile devices.
