It only runs for half an hour I would like them to do a one hour show about NBL, NBA and college

How does it help the nbl to promote everything else?

Great idea having the NBL covering everyone else's games. Why don't you criticise or comment on why THEY don't do it here? So many retards.

Is this the reason why highlights have been blocked on the nbl app

It is every Tuesday. Why would it 've just the one Tuesday night threee weeks into the season? The Fox schedule shows that it is a regular fixture anyway. Every Tuesday at 8 Adelaide time on Fox 5

Well, I give them a clap for trying to promote the game, god knows the Melbourne Herald Sun doesn't give a flying fracker about the game, nothing at all again this Monday morning...

Wait as minute, who owns the Sun, compared to who owns the Age??

Anyway, I don't know what it is like in other states, but here in Victoria it is miserable how basketball is treated by the newspapers!

Today's Herald Sun, cricket, rugby union, football, netball, motor racing, horses, soccer.....etc, etc, but no basketball whatsoever, again!

I must have checked too early when I looked at the following week on the guide.

If they're going to do a half an hour highlights show, why don't they do it of the previous round's games instead? (like the EPL highlights show) More relevant, who cares about the Blitz anymore

Ket..... Seriously? It's called the blitz, but it is not highlights of the nbl blitz. How dumb do you have to be? Weekly highlights of a 2 month old, four day tournament? Have those rocks surgically removed from your head.

Yes, it did come across my mind that they had just decided to name a regular highlights show as "NBL Blitz". However, when I looked at the Foxtel Guide last week under information, the "NBL Blitz" said "Highlights of the NBL Blitz", checking it now it just says "Episode 1" under information. Hopefully you should be able to see how "Highlights of the NBL Blitz" can be interpreted as...highlights of the NBL Blitz.

Congratulations on the dickish knee-jerk response though, your mother must be proud.

Great to have this show on Foxtel.


When does the NBL season go from Fox Sports News to normal Fox Sports?

Nothing super special but a good highlights package from each game. A good half hour of hoops.

What do you guys think could be done better? Anyone know the name of the voiceover guy? I thought that was a handy addition, thought it was just going to be a set of highlights as per the NBL Live App but to have a bit of storytelling helps sell the product and the drama a bit more I reckon

Liked it.
(The guy is Dwayne Russell btw)
Half an hour provides time for a good amount of highlights for each game, and I liked what they selected and how it was presented.

Ideas for improvements? I dunno. The bulk of the show is always going to be game recaps. They could maybe pick a player of the week or a coach for an interview? But probably not necessary since the game recaps include bits of that anyway.

As the season moves forward I'd also like to see them briefly show the league top 10 stat leaders for scoring, rebounding & assists, before they show the upcoming round of fixtures.

Dwayne Russell only did the intro and outro.

The commentator narrating the highlights is Richard Bayliss who is involved with football/A-League coverage for Fox. Great pick.

Even during the last time Fox covered the league professionally there was no real highlights show. The extras were the pre/post game show on Big Wednesday and panel show during the week.

Ideally (ok I'm being greedy) you would have this highlights show on a Monday, panel show on Tuesday, and perhaps another pregame package OR studio coverage to fill the hole between a double header. Therefore seven day coverage for all us junkies.

So far so good, perfect round to start the highlights show as the quality of games was excellent. oh wait no sorry it's a blowout league lol

» Every Game Live on FOX in HD & Foxtel GO Streaming
» Live game of the week on FTA through GEM/GO
» Streaming of every game & On Demand for $15/month on Phones/Tablets
» Streaming of every game & On Demand for News Corp Digital customers through Fox Sports.com.au
» Weekly highlights show on Fox Sports

Last year we had...
» One live game in NSW/Vic/Tas & delay in other states on Channel 10 on Sunday
» One delayed game on Friday on ONEHD
» Streaming of most games live through NBLTV (crappy quality stream)

LK has ticked off essentially every box now! So. Much. Better. than last year.
