How to Watch the NBA Finals Online with Spectrum Internet

The TV schedule for the NBA finals is set, with all games set to appear on ABC broadcast nationally across the United States. Once again, for the fourth year in a row, the Cleveland Cavaliers led by Lebron James will take on Steph Curry and the cast of future Hall of Famers known as the Golden State Warriors.

Here are the dates and times for the games:

Game 1 from Oakland: Thursday, May 31, 9 p.m. ET, ABC

Game 2 from Oakland: Sunday, June 3, 8 p.m. ET, ABC

Game 3 from Cleveland: Wednesday, June 6, 9 p.m. ET, ABC

Game 4 from Cleveland: Friday, June 8, 9 p.m. ET, ABC

Game 5* from Oakland: Monday, June 11, 9 p.m. ET, ABC

Game 6* from Cleveland: Thursday, June 14, 9 p.m. ET, ABC

Game 7* from Oakland: Sunday, June 17, 8 p.m. ET, ABC
* — if necessary

If you’re near a TV, seeing the game is no problem. But what if you want to watch the game on a tablet or your phone somewhere there isn’t a TV nearby? You can do that too with Spectrum Internet, any of the cable TV subscriptions available from Spectrum, and WatchESPN.com or the ESPN App. Whether you’re in Akron, Ohio, hometown of Lebron James, or near the Bay on the beach in Santa Cruz, CA, you don’t need a television to catch all the finals action. Whether the Warriors sweep or blow a 3-1 lead again, you’ll want to see each and every moment.

NBA Playoff Cable TV Schedule for May

The NBA Playoffs are heating up—though without the Miami Heat—with the first round complete and second round action underway. Whether you’re in or out of market, you can find your team’s games on national cable and broadcast TV, with Spectrum cable TV services available in states housing six of the eight teams who remain: the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Boston Celtics, the Golden State Warriors, the New Orleans Pelicans, the Houston Rockets, and the Utah Jazz.
