Raptors vs Bucks live stream: how to watch 2019 NBA Eastern Conference Finals online

In a way, a Milwaukee Bucks vs Toronto Raptors Eastern
Conference Finals in the 2019 NBA postseason is exactly what we
should have expected. They are the top two seeds after all. And you
can watch the drama of the seven game series play out with this
TechRadar Bucks vs Raptors NBA live stream guide.

But in reality, neither of these franchises has been to an NBA
Finals since 1974. In fact, the Toronto Raptors have never been
there, losing out to LeBron’s Cavs team at this stage three years
ago.

So who will make history and march into the NBA Finals in 2019?
The Bucks will go in to the encounters as slight favorites, having
overcome the Pistons and then destroying the Boston Celtics. Their
first season under Mike Budenholzer started with seven straight
wins and has barely slowed down since then. The Greek Freak Giannis
Antetokounmpo has been their star man, of course.

It was an extraordinary buzzer-beater from Kawhi Leonard that
sent his Toronto Raptors through in game seven of the Eastern
Conference semi-final against the Philadelphia 76ers. Can they
finally make their very first Finals in the franchise’s relatively
young 24 year history?

Whether you’re rooting for the Bucks or the Raptors, we’ll
show you how to tune into all the action either on your TV or
online. Keep reading to see how you can stream the 2019 NBA Eastern
Conference Finals live online.

How to watch the 2019 NBA Eastern Conference Finals online from
outside your country

Living in the US, UK or Australia and want to catch the Raptors
vs Bucks series? Scroll further down the page and we’ll explain how
to watch a 2019 Eastern Conference NBA live stream, whether or not
you have cable.

But if you can’t watch because you’re not in your home country
and so your coverage is geo-blocked then we can suggest a clever
alternative (and no, it doesn’t involve finding some dodgy feed
on Reddit). Using a VPN – or
Virtual Private Network – you can change the IP address to one in a
different state or country which does have the stream so that you
can watch the series from anywhere in the world. The process is
very straightforward…

Watch the NBA Eastern Conference Finals on TV in the US

If you’ve already signed up for an NBA League Pass then we’re
afraid that won’t help you get a live stream of Raptors vs Bucks.
It isn’t any NBA Playoffs games live online. The best it can do is
to show the games on replay three hours after they air on TV. 

To watch on TV then, TNT is your only option
as the network has secured the rights to broadcast the Eastern
Conference Finals live.

We wish watching the NBA Playoffs was easier on TV but you can
get around network exclusivity deals by opting for a streaming
service that gives you access to every channel showing the playoffs
and all of which coming with some kind of free trial.
