NBA playoffs 2019: TV channels, live stream

The 2019 NBA playoffs broadcasts will be split between ESPN and TNT once again, about 40 games apiece. First- and second-round games are scattered across both networks, including several primetime matchups on ABC, the flagship station to ESPN.

TNT owns exclusive broadcast rights to the Eastern Conference finals, and ESPN covers the Western Conference finals. Every game during the NBA Finals will be shown exclusively on ABC.

The primary outlets for live-streaming 2019 NBA playoff games are Watch ESPN and Watch TNT, both available on desktop and by downloading the mobile app. You can also stream games live by signing up for fuboTV, which offers a free seven-day trial (TNT only).

Of course, the acclaimed “Inside the NBA” studio crew – host Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal and Kenny Smith – preside over TNT broadcasts. TNT will deploy broadcast tandems as such: Marv Albert with analyst Chris Webber; Kevin Harlan with analyst Reggie Miller; Brian Anderson with analyst Kevin McHale; and Spero Dedes with analyst Greg Anthony.

For games on ESPN and ABC, the network’s “NBA Countdown” crew of Michelle Beadle, Jalen Rose, Paul Pierce and Stan Van Gundy lead off the broadcasts. ESPN’s primary broadcast is Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson.
