How to Watch the NBA Finals Game 6 Online

The Cavaliers will have to fight for their postseason lives Thursday night, facing off against the Warriors after beating the team in Game 5 in Oakland. As the series heads back to Cleveland, basketball fans are in for one intense game — and you can watch it online.

The Watch ESPN app will be live streaming Game 6, allowing users to watch games live no matter where in the U.S. they may be. The app is available for download on iPad, iPhone, Amazon FireTV, Andriod, Apple TV, Kindle Fire, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One and Chromecast. It’s also available for viewing on Mac or PC.

The catch, however, is that you’ll need to log in with a cable or satellite username and password to gain access.

If you don’t have cable, and still want to watch the game for free, you can sign up for a free trial of the Sling TV app, if you haven’t already. The service will stream the 2016 NBA Finals through the Watch ESPN app, and the free trial lasts for seven days, getting you through the first three games. After that, Sling TV is available for $20 a month.

For those who do want to watch on TV, it’s being broadcast live nationally on ABC starting at 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST.
