BBL launches live streaming service

The British Basketball League, the UK’s top division of basketball, is to launch a new dedicated online platform for the high definition broadcast of live games throughout the 2013-14 season.

BBL TV will enable League Pass holders to access an initial 30 live games during the season for a price of £29.99 (€34.7/$45.3).

Customers can access content through a desktop PC, laptop or handheld device.

David Leydon Dunbar, BBL commercial director, said the 30-game package is intended to be complimentary to a mainstream broadcast deal, rather than a replacement.

He added: “Discussions are currently progressing well in relation to our mainstream broadcast partner and I'll look forward to being in a position to update the BBL audience soon.”

The new service will commence on October 6 with Glasgow Rocks hosting Surrey Heat.
