Paying particular attention to the US national team's participation in the Basketball World Cup, to be held in Spain from Saturday 30 August, ESPN will combine all of its networks in order to carry every game during the two-weeks competition.
In addition to an extensive Spanish coverage through ESPN Deportes, ESPN and ESPN2 will televise 13 games, including every USA men's national team game, as well as the semi-finals, finals and quarterfinals. Analyst and international basketball expert Fran Fraschilla will provide analysis for all games, while Kevin Connors and Marc Kestecher will rotate on play-by-play assignments.
Every game of the FIBA Basketball World Cup will be also available on WatchESPN, including 63 games from the FIBA world feed, accessible online on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app and streamed on televisions through Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
ESPN Deportes and ESPN Deportes+ will provide Spanish-language coverage of 15 games, including several games featuring Puerto Rico, Argentina and Mexico. In addition, ESPNDeportes.com will cover the Latin American teams in the tournament with feature interviews with players and coaches, video analysis and recaps and on-site reporting.
