How to stream NBA 2K League

Luckily, the NBA 2K League streams on both Twitch and YouTube Gaming, making it easily accessible for just about everyone. You can tune into the official Twitch channel and subscribe, or do the same for YouTube Gaming depending on your preference.

If you are having trouble accessing either Twitch or YouTube gaming where you are, a VPN may be a great choice for you. Signing up will allow you to connect to a server in a different location, allowing you to tune in and watch the action as it happens live.

We recommend ExpressVPN as our top pick, though there are tons of great VPN options that will also work well.
