In what’s sure to be a thrilling series, the Golden State Warriors are about to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals. Here’s how to stream every game on any device, as well as a few ways to catch the games if you don’t have a cable subscription.
Before we dive into how to watch, it might be helpful to know when to watch. Here’s the schedule for this year’s Finals, starting with the first game that’s airing tonight:
If you have a cable subscription with major providers like AT&T, Charter, DirecTV, Dish Network, and Xfinity, you can watch the complete broadcast games at no additional cost via these web sites and apps:
You can also cast the game to your Google Chromecast or Apple TV.
Ways to Watch Without a Cable Subscription
If you don’t have a cable or satellite TV subscription, there are still a couple of ways to catch the games. For streaming, you either need to “borrow” a friend or family member’s cable login, or give Sling TV a try. Sling offers a seven day free trial period, and that’s long enough to let you catch the first three games for free. If you want to watch the rest of the finals, though, you’ll need to fork over $20 for a full month of service. All things considered, $20 to watch every NBA Finals game—plus all the other included channels—isn’t a bad deal, especially since you’ll be able to watch on iOS, Android, Roku, Xbox, Amazon, and other devices. And while there’s no app for the Apple TV yet, you can use your Sling credentials to access the games on the WatchESPN app.
