W2W this wknd: changes to the newsletter, NBA Finals

The newsletter and blog will be changing a little due to the demands of a new job. I still plan to do the newsletter each week with a roundup and quick explanation of the week's news. I also plan to keep blogging, but a little less frequently. On to the weekly newsletter. Now that it's summer there won't be much going on with TV until the fall, but there are a lot of great sporting events this weekend that are available to watch without cable. Have a great weekend!


The NBA Finals continue on Sunday at 8pm and are streaming free on ESPN3 (through supported internet providers) or with Sling TV subscription (free trials available). They can also be watched free with an antenna on ABC.

MLB games of the day free on PC or with At-Bat Premium on iPhoneiPadAndroid (subject to local blackout).

  • Friday: Rockies vs Marlins, 7:10pm
  • Saturday: Dodgers vs Padres, 10:10pm
  • Sunday: Mariners vs Astros, 2:10pm

The PGA St Jude Classic is streaming free on Saturday and Sunday from 3-6pm on the PGA app for iPhoneiPadAndroid, or PC.

Some other events free with an antenna this weekend: NBC has the Stanley Cup Finals on Saturday night and FOX has MLB baseball on Saturday at 7pm.

Wild Card starring Jason Statham is the iTunes 99¢ rental of the week.

See free streaming movies on CrackleTubiTVHulu, and AOL On for this month.


Apple's developer conference came and went without a single mention of a new Apple TV or streaming service. I expect them to announce new hardware whenever they complete negotiations with content providers for a new TV service, hopefully by the iPhone event early this fall.
