If You Don’t Have Cable

Outside the Los Angeles and Oakland/San Francisco TV Markets

With this game being shown on NBA TV, those without cable who wish to watch the game will need to use Sling TV.

On the Web:

If you’re in the United States and don’t have access to a cable or satellite log-in, you can watch the game through Sling TV, an online streaming service that provides access to select channels for a monthly fee. The service’s Orange package, which includes ESPN, costs $20 a month, and to watch NBA TV you’ll need to sign up for the Sports Extra package. But if you’re looking for a way to watch the game for free, you can do so with Sling’s free 7-day trial.

To sign up for Sling, follow these steps:

1. Click here to sign up for Sling TV. You’ll need to enter your credit card information when signing up, but if you cancel your subscription before the trial period ends, you will not be charged.

2. When you sign up, select Sling’s Orange package, which costs $20 per month. You’ll also have the option of selecting Sling’s Blue package, and/or selecting “add-ons,” all of which come with a monthly fee but are included in the free trial. The Orange package is the only one that includes ESPN. Fortunately, it’s the default package on the Sling TV website. After doing this, you will need to sign up for the Sports Extra package in order to access NBA TV.

The service’s Orange package costs $20 a month. But if you’re looking for a way to watch a week’s worth of games for free, you can do so with Sling’s free 7-day trial.
