NBA announces multi-billion dollar 10 year ESPN deal
Part of the article says:
"The league also laid plans in partnership with ESPN for a new online video service that would show live regular season games, the people said. In a significant move for ESPN, which derives its huge profits from the pay-TV ecosystem, that service will be open to people who aren't cable or satellite TV customers."
"There is power in stability. As expected, the NBA announced massive nine-year extensions with longtime partners ESPN and Turner Sports that will keep the Association on the networks through the 2024-25 season."
I also heard them speaking about this briefly on SEN radio in Melbourne this morning, apparently it will bring more NBA to us here on pay TV and that can only be a good thing, can't it? Thoughts...
