Even Though They Don’t Carry ABC, You Can Still Watch the NBA Finals Live with Sling TV

On Thursday, June 28th, the 2019 NBA Finals kicks off with the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors. Unlike earlier games in the post-season, every game will be televised on ABC. For cord-cutters, this means that you can either watch the game OTA with an antenna or through a Live TV Streaming Service. PlayStation Vue, Hulu Live TV, and YouTube TV each carry ABC in ~175 markets, while DIRECTV NOW carries the local is ~90 markets.
