NBA TV extends Euroleague rights deal

NBA TV, the cable and satellite television broadcaster operated by the North American basketball league, has extended its rights deal with Euroleague Basketball for the 2014-15 season.

Under the terms of the deal, NBA TV will broadcast the Euroleague Game of the Week on a tape-delay basis every Sunday afternoon from the regular season through the playoffs and show two games from the Final Four season-ending competition.

North American viewers will be able to follow 28 games of the Euroleague this season through the new NBA TV agreement.

Andrea Bassani, Euroleague Basketball’s chief of television and new media rights officer, said: “A pure basketball channel is the perfect place for our games, and NBA TV guarantees an audience of true fans of our sport.”
