Right about now, every sports fan is prepping for the NBA Playoffs. They’re poring over game time schedules, reevaluating their decision to ditch cable television and likely burning all of the Labron James gear they can get their hands on. Rest assured playoff fans, a select few of you will be able to watch the NBA Playoffs on Xbox Live using a mix of apps and services.

Earlier today Microsoft finally began letting users download Sling TV for Xbox One, the companion app to the service of the same name.
