Use a Cable Alternative Like Sling TV to Stream the Game
Sling is an awesome service that was created as an alternative to cable. While it does not include all of the possible channels that the game could be on, if it is on TNT, TBS, ESPN, or ABC, then Sling is a perfect way to watch the Hawks game. It is a bit of a commitment to use Sling, being that it is 20 bucks a month, but they also give you a free 7-day trial that you can use to watch a game to see if it is a service you would like to continue. So head on over and check it out on their website.

Keep Away from the Enticing “Free” Streams of the Hawks
There are several different sites out there that will claim to be streaming the games for free.

These sites can infect your streaming device with a slew of different viruses, and sometimes ask you to download something, or give out personal information to even get access to the stream. In addition, the audio and video quality of these streams is less than satisfactory and cuts out often. No one wants to miss a game-changing shot just because of a crappy stream.
