Australia's National Basketball League has renegotiated its partnership with Channel Ten, that will see more live games shown next season.
“More Australians and more fans of basketball will see games as a result of this new partnership, and at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about: giving our fans the chance to watch games on TV, including one blockbuster match each round played live nationally on TEN every Sunday afternoon,” said Basketball Australia Chairman Kristina Keneally.
The new agreement includes:
· One feature game to be broadcast live nationally every Sunday afternoon on Ten. From the season, in October to February, the broadcast time will be live at 2:00pm nationally and live at 1:00pm nationally during March and April;
· One game per week will be shown nationally on Friday evenings at the regular timeslot of 9:30PM on Ten’s digital channel One;
· All NBL Finals games will also be broadcast on both Ten and One under the new deal, with Ten maintaining access to rebroadcast coverage of New Zealand Breakers 14 home games into Australia.
