Tonight on Xbox Live: Watch the 2017 NBA Finals
Steph Curry and Lebron are at it again, and you can watch from the comfort of your own living room. Tonight you can watch the 2017 NBA Finals on the Xbox One and Xbox 360, provided you know where to look.
The 2017 NBA Finals kick off at 9 PM Eastern Standard Time June 6th. Subsequent games air Sunday at 8 PM on June 4th and Wednesday, June 7th at 9 PM. You can watch on your Xbox One through the ESPN app since the game will air on ESPN 3. Internet television service Sling TV has ESPN 3 in its orange channel line-up, meaning you can pick up a free trial to watch the game through it too. Unfortunately, Xbox apps can no longer snap to the side of your screen, so there’s no way to keep up with the score while you’re watching something else tonight.
Disney’s broadcast channel, ABC, is also broadcasting the 2017 NBA Finals. This means you can watch the Golden State Warriors vs Cavaliers games directly through the Watch ABC apps for smartphones and tablets — depending on your location. The Xbox One doesn’t have a dedicated Watch ABC app, but if you’ve connected your console to your cable or satellite box you’ll be fine. Just tell the console to “Watch ABC,” if your Kinect is plugged in. If it’s not, go to the OneGuide area to have your Xbox change to ABC.
