It’s been a long few months but the wait is finally over and Warriors fans will soon be able to watch their favorite team play basketball as the NBA has released its game schedule for the 2020-21 season. Keep reading as we have all the details on how you can watch a Golden State Warriors live stream and catch every second of the action on TV or online.
Just like the rest of the teams in the league, the Warriors will play 72 games this season and while the schedule for the first half of the 2020-21 regular season has been released, the schedule for the second half will be released in early 2021.
Everything you need to know to watch the Golden State Warriors online for every game of the 2020/21 NBA season is below, from TV channel details to live streaming options - and you can take your preferred Warriors’ coverage with you wherever you are by drafting a rock-solid VPN (opens in new tab).
Last year the Golden State Warriors finished at the bottom of the Western Conference in 15th place. The team won a total of 15 games during the regular season while they lost 50. For this reason, the Warriors did not make it to the playoffs last year and the team ended its seven year streak of making an appearance in the postseason. Will the Warriors be able to turn things around this year and finish higher in the Western Conference?
The 2020-2021 NBA season is just beginning and what better jumping off point to start keeping track of your favorite team. Lucky for you, you won’t have to miss any of the Warrior’s 72 regular season games with our guide to live stream the Golden State Warriors from anywhere in the world even during NBA blackouts.

How to watch a Golden State Warriors live stream from outside your country
You may not be able to watch the Golden State Warriors play using your cable TV or streaming service subscription due to coverage blackout rules in the US or international geo-blocking restrictions.
When this is the case,the simplest and most reliable solution is to use a VPN service, which masks your IP address - and therefore your location - when you visit a website. On top of that, it gives you the ability to reroute your device's internet connection through a server in a different country or state, thereby getting you access to coverage that might not otherwise be available - even though you probably pay for it.

How to watch the Warriors in the US: live stream Golden State Warriors basketball in 2020/21
Warriors fans in the US that don’t want to miss a single game this season will need either a cable package or a subscription to a streaming service that gives you access to ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3, ABC, TNT, NBA TV and your Fox Sports and NBC Sports regional sports networks (RSNs).
For this reason, we recommend getting a subscription to a streaming service that gives you access to ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3, ABC, TNT, NBA TV, Fox Sports and NBC Sports instead of signing up for NBA League Pass. If you’re located outside the US it’s a different story as the International NBA League Pass doesn’t have these same restrictions but more on that later. Of all the streaming services currently available, FuboTV is the best option (opens in new tab)for most Warriors fans.
The best streaming service for Golden State Warriors fans
To watch every Warriors game this season, you’ll need to sign up for the service’s Family Plan (opens in new tab) which costs $64.99 per month. FuboTV’s Family Plan gives you access to almost all of the channels you’ll need to watch the NBA live this season as it includes ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, Fox Sports, NBC Sports, NBA TV, though not TNT. FuboTV also offers access to the Golden State Warriors’ local broadcaster NBC Sports Bay Area.

The cheapest way to live stream Warriors games
If you only want to watch the biggest games and are less concerned about RSN coverage, you can watch the NBA online for less with great value OTT streaming service Sling TV (opens in new tab).
Its Orange package (opens in new tab) costs just $30 a month and gets you ESPN and TNT, while a $10 p/m Sports Extra add-on nets you NBA TV. This combo will give you an NBA live stream for many nationally televised games, with ABC the only channel not on offer.
Plus, Sling offers a FREE TRIAL period (opens in new tab) so you can check it out for yourself - and unlike cable, cancel your subscription at any time. Its RSN offering is limited, however.
How to watch Golden State Warriors games outside your market
The NBA has its own streaming service called NBA League Pass (opens in new tab) that will allow you to follow either your favorite team or teams all season long. With NBA Team Pass, you get access to every live game for one team with full replays for $119.99 a year.
NBA League Pass gives you the same coverage but instead of having access to just one team’s games, you can watch live games for every team in the NBA for $199.99. Basketball fans who want the complete package though will have to sign up for NBA League Pass Premium which gives you access to all teams and in-arena streams for $249.99 a year. NBA League Pass offers the most content by far but there is a catch, NBA blackouts still apply so you won’t be able to view local games live.
How to watch Golden State Warriors blackout games
If blackouts have become an issue for whatever reason, remember that having a good VPN (opens in new tab) on your software roster can help you get around this - just follow the guide above.
How to watch a Golden State Warriors live stream in Canada
Canadian Warriors fans will need either a cable package or a subscription to a streaming service that gives them access to SportsNet, TSN 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 as well as NBA TV Canada. While you could add these channels to your current cable package, this can get pricey real quick as many of this season’s games will be shown on premium channels.
If you’d prefer to stream basketball online, you can subscribe to SportsNet Now (opens in new tab) for $19.99 per month and this will allow you to livestream over 200 NBA games including the NBA Playoffs. If you just want to watch a few basketball games, the service also offers a 7-day pass (opens in new tab) for $9.99. Alternatively, a TSN (opens in new tab) subscription will also set you back $19.99 per month.
However, neither of these options will get you the same coverage as NBA League Pass (opens in new tab) which allows you to stream one team, all the teams in the league or even all teams without commercials depending on which package you choose.
How to watch the Golden State Warriors: live stream every game in the UK
If you’re in the UK, then Sky Sports (opens in new tab) is your best bet for watching the Warriors this season as the network is beginning year three of its four-year broadcast deal with the NBA. As a Sky Sports subscriber, you’ll get access to full coverage of the NBA including this year’s Christmas Day games and All-Star week in February.
The Warriors are often among the teams featured on Sky Sports, but for those who don’t want the full commitment of a Sky contract, there are other options.
A Now TV Sky Sports Pass (opens in new tab) will let you watch the network’s NBA coverage and can be cancelled at any time. In addition to the NBA, there’s also loads of football, cricket, golf, and F1 action, with pricing that starts at £9.99 for a day's use - but we highly recommend the (opens in new tab)better value Monthly Pass - now just £25! (opens in new tab) It gets you coverage for the beginning of the 2020-21 NBA season as well as the full month of content from other sports as well.
For die-hard Warriors fans that can’t stand the thought of missing a single game, NBA League Pass is also available in the UK. However, unlike in the US, the International NBA League Pass (opens in new tab) doesn’t have any blackouts or other restrictions so you’ll be able to watch every Golden State Warriors game this season live as it happens.
How to watch Golden State Warriors and live stream NBA games in Australia
Warriors fans in Australia have a few options to watch the NBA this season as Foxtel, SBS and Kayo Sports will all broadcast live games.
Foxtel will broadcast live NBA games via ESPN but you will need to add the network’s Sports Package for $25 per month on top of the Foxtel Plus Pack at $49 per month to watch making it a hard option to recommend. While you won’t be able to watch every game on SBS, the network will show basketball games on Saturday and Sunday this season.
If you’ve already cut the cord, then the excellent value streaming service Kayo Sports (opens in new tab) also has you covered for all things ESPN and can be cancelled at any time - so we'd recommend looking into this option first. It costs either $25 or $35 per month depending on which package you choose but it’s still far cheaper than Foxtel and you can grab a 14-day FREE TRIAL (opens in new tab) to test it out. Perhaps best of all, a single Kayo Sports subscription can be used simultaneously across multiple devices, meaning you can share one with family or friends and pay less.
Don’t forget that you can also grab a good VPN (opens in new tab) to ensure you can access your preferred streaming coverage from anywhere in the world, while NBA League pass (opens in new tab) is available in Australia for those who don’t want to miss a single Warriors game this season.
Golden State Warriors: 2020/21 season team news
The Golden State Warriors were expecting to have a big addition to their team by bringing on Chinese player Jeremy Lin from the Beijing Ducks. However, as a letter of clearance was not obtained from his former team ahead of the December 19 deadline, the deal has fallen apart.
The Warriors could still manage to sign Lin but the team would have to pay a penalty. While Lin won’t be coming from the G-League to the NBA, former Hofstra star Elijah Pemberton has been signed-and-waved by the Warriors and will soon be playing in the NBA’s minor league.
