Looking for a live stream of Saturday night’s NBA Skills Challenge? Whether you’re in the United States or Canada, we’ve got you covered.

The event is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on TNT, TSN and SportsNet. If you can’t get to a TV, here’s a complete roundup of the available live stream options:


If You’re in the United States

On the Web:

If you don’t have access to a cable or satellite log-in, you can watch the event through Sling TV, an online streaming service that provides access to select channels for a monthly fee. The service’s Best of Live TV package, which includes TNT, costs $20 a month, but if you’re looking for a way to watch the event for free, you can do so with Sling’s free 7-day trial. . 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.

Another option if you don’t have a cable or satellite log-in is TNT Overtime, where you can watch “enhanced coverage” of the event. In other words, you will be able to watch camera angles that are different from the regular broadcast. It’s not ideal, but it’s free.
