Tonight’s the big night for basketball fans.
The Cavaliers will face off against the Warriors in a battle for the champion. The winner captures the NBA title, and the loser goes home empty-handed. It’s a game that surely all basketball fans will be monitoring, and you can watch along even without a television.
If you’re watching online, ESPN3 will be livestreaming it for free on WatchESPN.com. Past games on ESPN and ESPN2 have required a cable login to watch — however, all you’ll need to do is sign in with your Internet service provider to watch this game. Check ESPN Go for a list of participating Internet providers.
If you don’t have an Internet provider, or yours isn’t on the list, you can access WatchESPN.com through the Sling TV subscription service. It costs $20 per month, but, if you haven’t used it already, you can watch the game with a free seven-day trial.
Basketball fans can also watch the game via mobile, on either the WatchESPN or the ESPN apps. Both are available for free download, though you’ll have to sign in through your Internet provider or Sling TV account.
For those watching on television, the game will be broadcast live from the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., starting at 5 p.m. PST/8 p.m. PST, on ABC.
