How to watch the 2019 NBA Draft online for free

YouTube

The next generation of NBA stars will take center stage.

You don’t need to tune into the 2019 NBA Draft to know the New Orleans Pelicans will select Zion Williamson, perhaps the most-hyped prospect since LeBron James. But after that, things should get interesting. Will the Pelicans flip the no. 4 pick it just acquired from the Lakers in the blockbuster Anthony Davis trade? Will the Hawks be able to package its two lottery picks in hopes of moving up in the draft, and who will the Spurs—always one of the better teams when it comes to finding obscure talent—select with its two late first-round picks?

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the 2019 NBA Draft for free.

How to watch the 2019 NBA Draft for free

ESPN is available on a handful of the major live TV streaming services. When trying to decide which one is best for you, you’ll want to weigh the cost, the other channels you’ll receive, and the compatible devices for streaming. Thankfully, no matter which service you pick, you’ll start with a one-week trial, so you can watch the 2019 NBA Draft for free.

1) Sling TV

For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, both of which cost $25 per month. ESPN is only available on Sling Orange packages. If you grab them both (Sling Orange + Blue) you can save $10 per month. Sling Blue offers more bang for your buck with over 40 channels, including sports necessities like FS1, NBCSN, and NFL Network. You’ll also gain access to the usual cable mainstays like Food Network, Discovery, Cartoon Network, SYFY, and FXX. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream live TV, perhaps because you gain access to a massive library of on-demand content including classic and current TV shows, movies, not to mention Hulu’s original programming. As far as live-streaming goes, you’ll have almost 60 channels to flip through, including HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geo Wild and Syfy.

3) PlayStation Vue

If you have a PS4 and are into the idea of having your gaming and streaming needs met in the same place, PlayStation Vue is made for you. Jumping from your favorite game to your favorite show is seamless, and controlling it is as intuitive as playing an actual game. Your PS4 controller is your remote, after all. Still, you don’t need a PS4 to enjoy this service. You can also use a Roku, Amazon Fire devices, and even Kodi. Plus, you’ll get awesome channels like AMC, BBC America, and Bravo in PlayStation Vue’s entry-level package. One subscription works with up to five devices, all with unlimited cloud DVR storage, which makes it one of the most binge-friendly solutions. (Here are all of PlayStation Vue channels.)
