The NBA season is coming down to the wire and it’s set up the marquee match-up everybody wanted: LeBron vs. Curry. Cavs vs. Warriors.

Hoops doesn’t get more exciting than this. And whether you’re following the game at your desk at work, or having people over to catch the action, we’ve found the best way to watch the NBA finals for free. Stream the championship games through your computer or TV with this free trial from DIRECT TV NOW.

The new offer gives you seven days of free access to more than 60 channels, including ABC and ESPN, where the games are being broadcast. There’s no contract and you can cancel anytime. Even better: there’s no satellite required and no equipment to set up (which also means no waiting for the installation guy to come over).
