Listen to the NBA Playoffs on Your iPhone, iPad, or Android

Earlier we wrote about a couple place where you could listen to NBA games live online. Here are a couple apps that will allow you to listen to NBA games, even the NBA Playoff games, on you iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Android phone.

Note: Screenshots below are taken in Android OS, so they may look slightly different on the iPhone or iPad.

TuneIn Radio

If you have an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone and listen to sports talk radio or other sports-related programming, this app is an absolute must have. We’ve posted before about using TuneIn app to listen to Sports Talk Radio Shows like ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike in the Morning, Dan Patrick, Jim Rome, and Colin Cowherd. It’s also an ideal way to get live NBA play-by-play action.

TuneIn Radio App is only 0.99 cents for iPhone & iPad, but it’s free for Android. (See download links below)

There are a few ways to find a game. To browse by genre, select Sports. NBA will be available if there are any games in progress (or other NBA programming).

You can “Add to Presets” to quickly access the channel from the presets next time you want to listen.


You can also try searching by team name or station call letters if you happen to know them.
