Reddit nbastreams Banned – Alternatives to Watch NBA Online 2020

Once again Reddit took a disappointing decision against their users. Right after banning SoccerStreams, CricketStreams and MmaStreams subreddit page, beloved subreddit of the NBA community under the URL /r/nbastreams has been taken down.

Those who had never visited the subreddit page, let me give a brief idea. This was a subreddit community with more than 400,000 subscribers who like to talk about basketball. But why it is banned? Is there anything wrong with talking about basketball? Not at all. But the problem was, most people use this as a medium to access and share links leading to illegal NBA live streams for free. Whenever there was an NBA game going on, hundreds of subscribers post direct or acestream links to Watch NBA Online for free. Almost all quality streaming links like 480p, 720p, 1080p was available on that page.

Definitely, this is illegal and hurts the corporates who have bought the broadcasting rights. Unlike downloadable contents, streaming links are very difficult to track down and take down. Especially acestream links which works based peer to peer basis. So the copyright holders might though that, it was a good idea to pass copyright notice against Reddit nbastreams subreddit to avoid spreading of streaming links.

Whatever the reason be, Reddit had to wait till the NBA Finals so that the subscribers can make use of the subreddit for one last season. Right after the takedown, users will only see “r/nbastreams has been banned from Reddit. This subreddit was banned under Reddit’s Repeat Copyright Infringement Policy.” error message. One funny fact is that two other leading streaming subreddits r/nflstreams and r/mlbstreams pages are still active.
