Jeopardy! is holding a tournament this week between three of its greatest players: Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter, and James Holzhaur. The event, called Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time, officially kicked off Wednesday evening on ABC, but will also air at 8pm ET Thursday and Friday evening.

If you don’t have cable, but still want to catch all the action, there are a number of ways you can do it.

If you have a television, the easiest way, of course, is to simply tune into ABC where the show is airing. ABC is free over-the-air provided you have a digital antenna (if you don’t have one, maybe this would be a good time to buy one, they’re super cheap).

Streaming Services

If you have cable, but just happen to be away from your television tonight, then you can also tune in using ABC’s app.

Locast is a free streaming service that currently works in 16 cities. If you happen to live in one of them, then you can stream ABC on its service for free.

A number of paid streaming services also offer access to ABC. If you already subscribe to one, then it will probably work. If you don’t, most offer free trials that will allow you to take the service for a spin to watch this week’s shows—just remember to cancel before the trial period is over if you don’t want to get charged.

That said, not every streaming service offers access to ABC is every market, so double-check to make sure ABC is available in your before you sign up for one of these specifically to watch Jeopardy!

Sling TV, YourTube TV, AT&T TV Now, and Hulu with Live TV all offer ABC in some markets. If you’re the type that typically forgets to cancel your free trial of things, then your cheapest option of the bunch is Sling TV, which starts at $30/month.

YouTube TV and AT&T TV Now are both $50/month after the trial period ends, and Hulu is $55/month after a free trial.
