Culkin portrays eight-year-old Kevin McCallister in the film, who’s accidentally left behind when his family boards a plane to France.

The kids are determined to end their relationship, though, so he’s in for a heck of a road trip.
Rio (2011)

Stars Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, Leslie Mann
Directed by Carlos Saldanha
Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) is a rare blue macaw who believes that he’s the last of his kind. But when he learns that there’s another lady macaw out there, he ventures out from his small town in Minnesota and heads to Rio de Janeiro to meet her, believing they’re meant to be together. Unfortunately, the fiercely independent Jewel (Anne Hathaway) has been born and bred by the wild and the domesticated Rio is far from an impressive paramour. But when they’re unexpectedly forced to stick together, they find they each have more to learn from one another than they thought.

How to watch NBA basketball from anywhere for free
Jack Harlow at the 2022 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game.

What's so great about this new era of digital content and livestreaming opportunities is that you can watch from virtually anywhere. Yes, you can sit down in your living room and watch on your main TV, but also, if you're out running errands, you could watch from your phone or tablet, or if you're away on a business trip, you can even start watching on your laptop. Being able to stream content online, whether live or recorded, completely changes the entertainment game. It has also transformed the wide world of sports, including boxing, mixed martial arts, soccer, and basketball. For example, it's possible to watch NCAA basketball anywhere from online, or watch the FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup online, as well, sometimes even for free. So, most assuredly, it's possible to watch an NBA live stream online for select games.
When you want to watch NBA basketball, from anywhere in the world, online, you have a few different options. It really depends on where the game is being broadcast live, as certain networks own the rights to various games, and offer livestreams exclusively through proprietary or partner services. The EFL Cup in soccer is only available through ESPN+ in the United States, for instance. NBA games are sometimes broadcast on TNT, NBA TV, NBA League Pass, ESPN, ABC, and a bevy of other cable channels, with just as much variety when it comes to watching those events online. If you're looking to catch the latest NBA games, don't fret, it may seem complicated but we're going to break it all down for you. Keep reading to see the best places to watch NBA games online, from anywhere in the world.
