How to watch online

TNT / TNTOT

If you have a cable subscription then you’re in luck because you’re able to just watch on tv or you can log on to your favorite device, download the TNT app, log in, and watch the game. If you don’t have a tv subscription, there’s always TNTOT. TNTOT will not have the tv broadcast, but you can watch the game through multiple angles (action cam, backboard cam, then two cams on two players at all times). You can even have it multi-panel and have them all going at once.

ESPN / ESPN+

If you have a cable subscription then you’re able to watch ESPN or log in to your favorite device. One good thing about ESPN streaming is you can watch the game in the ESPN streaming app even if it’s on ABC. If you don’t then there’s always ESPN+. ESPN+ is ESPN’s newest streaming service. It’s $4.99/month and allows you to stream ESPN, their shows, their entire 30 for 30 documentaries, and other niche sports. It’s been created by Disney’s BAM company that’s behind MLBtv and the HBOnow App.

I haven’t tried it out yet, but those two services are known for their dependability and speed. In the past, ESPN’s streaming services have been notorious for behind about a minute behind the live game. Brutal for game threads and keeping up with twitter during the game. Has that changed with ESPN+? Don’t know yet.

Sling TV

One way is through Sling TV. Sling TV is a cord cutting service that allows you to have the most of the channels of satellite or cable without having to have satellite or cable. They do have a free trial of 7 days that you can try out before they start charging you. Sling TV does have TNT, ESPN, ABC and NBAtv.

Playstation VUE

Playstation VUE has TNT, ESPN, ABC, and NBAtv. Playstation Vue, like Sling TV, is a cord cutting service that allows you to have most of the channels of satellite or cable. Unlike Sling TV, Playstation Vue only gives you 5 days of free trial before they start charging you.

Hulu Live TV

Hulu TV only has ESPN. Hulu a cord cutting service like Sling TV and Playstation VUE, but lacks TNT, ABC, and NBAtv. It does give you a free trial, but you are missing out on the other ways to watch the game.

YouTube TV

YouTube TV has TNT, ESPN, ABC, and NBAtv. Like Playstation VUE and Sling TV, it is a cord cutting service that gives you most of the channels of satellite or cable. It is only available in select areas (or just everywhere but Boise, Idaho when I tested it). It has a 7 day free trial before they start charging you.

[Correction: Had forgotten YouTube TV as a cord cutting option. Thanks to the folks who brought it to my attention!]
