How to Watch the NBA Finals from Anywhere

Strap yourselves in and prepare yourself as basketball’s finest go head to head in the NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors have slayed all before them on their route to competition’s endgame, sweeping the Trail Blazers to win the Western Conference Finals on the back of some ridiculous Steph Curry shooting, averaging 36.5 points per game over the Conference Finals. A line-up including Curry, Thompson, Green, Durant, Iguodala, Cousins, among other stars, is always going to be difficult to beat and it will be up to the Toronto Raptors to defeat the favorites.

Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard has hit a super-rich vein of form during these Eastern Conference Finals and will hope his side can overcome the odds to secure the franchise’s first ever NBA title. Either way the final is sure to be superb entertainment and If you want to make sure you don’t miss a thing get yourself a VPN!

Why Do I Need a VPN?

Broadcasters are restricted as to where they can broadcast their streams too. With a VPN you can connect to a server anywhere around the world and make it appear as that is your location. For example, your streaming service might only broadcast to the United States but you may be in Europe. If you try to access your streaming service it will say you are unable to view thanks to your location and broadcasting restrictions. By using a VPN you can connect to a US server, it appears as if you are there and then you can watch your stream without issue. So by doing this you can access the cheapest streams worldwide and adjust your location to suit your streaming service.

What Is Your Best Option?

Youtube TV, SlingTV, Hulu and Playstation Vue have a 7-day free trial. You can utilize these to cover the entire Finals Series. All you will need to do is connect to a US server through your VPN.

Another option is to make an account with Eleven Sports. You just need to connect to a Taiwan server with your VPN. This isn’t an entirely free service though, but it only charges $3USD a month.

For those with existing accounts with streaming services such as DirectTV, ABC Live or the ones mentioned above but you find yourself overseas, all you need to do is connect to a US server through your VPN.

Which VPN?

NordVPN and ExpressVPN are usually the best options, particularly if you go the Eleven Sports route as Taiwan servers aren’t so accessible through other VPNs. These generally have servers located all over the world and constantly update their servers for maximum accessibility.

In Conclusion

  1. Download and install a VPN
  2. Connect to a server of the country required of your streaming option
  3. Open the stream and enjoy

Hard to make a prediction on the final result as we don’t even know who are going to be the two competing sides. However, I feel the class and Finals experience of Golden State will once again result in them taking home the chocolates.
