TNT Sports nets Liga ACB rights in Argentina

The Asociación de Clubes Españoles de Baloncesto (ACB), which organises the top tier of club basketball in Spain, has agreed a rights deal for the competition with Argentinian subscription-television channel TNT Sports.

The deal with TNT Sports, which is owned by US media company Turner, also covers the Copa del Rey tournament. The agreement covers the remainder of the 2019-20 season.

TNT Sports will broadcast two live fixtures on each match weekend, along with highlights packages, best plays of the day and other reports.

The top tier of Spanish basketball has previously been covered in Argentina by pay-TV broadcaster Fox Sports Latin America.

Argentine players currently plying their trade in Spain include Facundo Campazzo, Nico Laprovittola and Gabriel Deck (Real Madrid), Patricio Garino and Luca Vildoza (Kirolbet Baskonia), and Nicolas Brussino (Casademont Zaragoza).
