I have never stopped watching Raptors all these years, but one thing is for sure though, when they are playing bad, I'm in no rush to come home and watch lol.. but now when they are winning.. it's harder to miss games

they are playing the rite way which makes it more fun

That is pretty stupid since you are located in Brampton. Sometimes I use this site Watch live sports online at ILEMI

All the games for every sport is streamed there. Some game quality at times may be shit, but for the most part it's solid. Plus, it's free. Just make sure you have the adblocker/pop-up blocker on so it doesn't disturb your game.

There is a way around it, PM ClutchCity and he will tell you how to get around the blackout games and you will be able to watch the Raps games. I just bought BallStreams and it is awesome, I don't have cable or anything and being able to watch games in 720p on my computer is awesome. Would definitely reccommend it. I haven't been able to watch the past few games so I don't look at the score and just watch it later at night. I skip all the commercials and halftime and can watch the game in under 2 hours so it's nice

Yup, I had League Pass last year and there is a fairly easy way around those blackouts. The work around isn't so easy to find online though. But, like Gurk, I went with Ballstreams this year as well and plan on sticking with them for as long as they're around. The lack of being able to pick the home stream on League Pass really irritated me. Plus I'm paying less than half the price of what League Pass would have cost. So far Ballstreams is proving to be a superior service.

I can also vouch for ballstreams, been trying to keep it on the dl before it gets over exposed but it's way better than league pass, and a lot cheaper too. Only thing is you need a decent +10mpbs internet connection if you want HD streaming without lag

Use a proxy, get around the blackouts, its very easy.

Ballstreams is like piratebay, its not legal, but it probably wont get shut down either. Its very good quality at a cheaper rate, plus you can choose which announcers you want to listen to, unlike with LP unless you get their premium package. Ballstreams is the better product in comparing prices, since its essentially the same product, but the risk of them getting shut down had me go with LP again.

I checked them out and they don't appear to be legal, but the features are very nice and it's cheaper. I'm probably going to switch to them next season, if they're still around, worst comes to worst and they do get shutdown, you don't lose too much. I think I paid 150 for LP this season and it's only $90 for BS and they have an entire year, not just a season.

I plan to ditch all the extra sport packages I have to carry around on my bell subscription just to be able to see all games, that should save me around $20/month, more than enough to pay for this or even LP. It's a joke what the cable companies make you do just to be able to watch every game of your home team.

You should just get rid of cable altogether, there's no point in it when you can find and download everything online.

In terms of pricing, I think I paid 90 for LP(with playoffs) in the pre season, and Ballstreams was only 60.

I can't really see Ballstreams going down anytime soon. The service is provided by the same guys that do Hockeystreams and they've been around 6 or 7 years now without any repercussions from the NHL.

I used a vpn for LP last year and it worked for a while until my LP got suspended. It's good to hear about other alternatives.

It's just the most ridiculous thing to have to watch Raptors on Firstrow while paying for LP..

Wait, LP actually suspended your account for using a vpn? Did they email you to tell you that? I've never read of that anywhere.

I'm just curious, I've never had LP before and have always streamed games online but why is it that Raptors games are blacked out?

You can even freeze your ballstreams account after the seasons over, giving you 3+ more months for the next season

Not sure if this is allowed here, but it'll help all of us without cable. There is always HD LP stream links on reddit, for every single game in a given night. Top-notch quality stuff, there's one even for tonight's game. I can PM anyone that needs it, or the can have a look on reddit themselves.
