The NBL cracked the top 20 most watched things on Foxtel
I've been a bit negatively lately, but when I see positive news, I share it and give credit.
The NBL cracked the top 20 most watched things on Foxtel yesterday with the post game panel show "The NBL Wrap", for the first time in recent memory, drawing 33,000 eyes and competing fairly strongly against the A League and Moto GP. Numbers of 33,000 are about what we might have expected for the Grand Final series last year, and not Sydney merely playing a small market team in Cairns as early as Round 3. The NBL is definitely growing, and maybe I am wrong about what does and doesn't attract fans lol.
It is fair to assume the actual game drew about the same numbers as well.
