Watch the NBA Playoffs in Korea

By Honnie

Are you a fan of the NBA? Are you wandering where you can watch basketball while in Korea? Fortunately, Naver has you covered. It doesn't matter if you're in Seoul or Busan or Jeju, you should have no problem getting your fix of NBA playoff basketball.

Go to sports.naver.com.

If there is an NBA game being played (games must be streamed live), it will show up in the middle of the screen. A translucent, oblong circle with a green play symbol will also appear.

1) Click on the play button.

2) If you intend to stream the game through your desktop or laptop, you may need to download a simple plugin for Naver's media player. Don't worry, download instructions are in English.

3) The stream plays smoothly on most smartphones. Depending on where you are, this may be the better option.

Note: A few of the games have Korean commentary, but most of the games are without any commentary at all. The English audio is there, but it is turned down low. However, the sounds of the arena are in full affect.

Now kick back and enjoy some basketball. Thank you, Naver, for coming through in the clutch, much like Lebron James, Chris Paul, Stephen Curry....who?

Oh Boy!
