Showing major signs of regression last season, the Chicago Bulls are going to have to go above and beyond to get the credit they deserve this season. We’ve already begun to see the media underrate the talent on this roster, but what’s worse is that the NBA themselves have started to overlook the Bulls as well.
Chicago will receive much less national exposure this season, but that may not be the worst thing in the world. There’s still plenty of time to rewrite these narratives, however, as their 2023-24 season is set to kick off beginning on October 25 at home against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
How to watch the NBA in 2023-24: Complete Live Streaming Guide
Fresh off limping into a disappointing 40-42 record last season, whiffing at the NBA Draft Lottery, and failing to make any dramatic moves during the free agency period, the Chicago Bulls have a lot of questions they’ll need to answer for. Is the front office doing an adequate job running this franchise? Can Zach LaVine return to his All-Star form? Will Patrick Williams ever make the leap fans have been waiting for?
Here’s everything you need to know in order to watch the Chicago Bulls during the 2023-24 season, as they look to provide answers to these questions and more.
How to watch the Bulls on cable in 2023-24
Aside from nationally televised games, you’ll find the bulk of Bulls basketball presented through NBC Sports Chicago. NBCSC already has exclusivity deals to cover the Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago White Sox, so you’re probably well acquainted with them by now.
Additionally, nationally televised games on ESPN, TNT, ABC, and NBA TV can be watched through cable providers such as Xfinity TV, DISH TV, Spectrum TV, and DIRECTV.
How to watch the Bulls without cable in 2023-24
On top of watching the games live with cable, NBC Sports Chicago is also the most reliable way to stream games online. You can access these games with a cable provider or via several streaming services. YouTube TV, Sling TV, Hulu + Live TV, and FuboTV are the most reliable ways to stream games without cable. FuboTV even offers a free trial for their services here.
How many nationally televised games will the Bulls play in 2023-24?
The Chicago Bulls have a shockingly low seven nationally televised games on their schedule this season, including three on NBA TV. Chicago’s first game on cable will take place on TNT on January 14, against the Toronto Raptors. Their first NBA TV game, however, will be on the road at Denver on November 4.
How can fans watch Bulls games on NBA League Pass?
NBA League Pass is one of the most reliable ways to tune into games all around the league. An NBA League Pass membership provides you with full access to NBA TV as well as a wide variety of other features.
Standard packaging begins at $99.99 for the entirety of the 2023-24 season, but you can upgrade to receive in-arena footage and commercial-free coverage for $149.99. If you’re only interested in watching the Bulls play, Team Pass provides another slightly discounted option for $89.99. Be advised that some games are subject to local blackouts, and NBA League Pass does not provide coverage of the NBA Playoffs.
NBA on ESPN and ABC schedule for 2023-24
The Bulls are only scheduled to play three games on ESPN/ABC this season. Despite being one of the country’s largest markets, Chicago’s inability to field a competitive roster has resulted in very little national coverage this year. Here’s the Bulls’ full schedule on ESPN/ABC this season:
- Bulls @ Knicks, January 3, 2024
- Bulls @ Cavaliers, February 14, 2024
- Bulls vs. Bucks, March 1, 2024
