Why don't NBL tv intros use game footage?

They always use players making tough faces and making fake moves in a dark room. Why not use in game highlights to create an exciting montage?

What they use feels very cheap

I fear you may have answered your own question in 1 word: cheap.

With player changes and new season uniforms, it would be a bit more difficult to produce game action intros to start the season.

But... couldn't they start to edit the intros with in-game footage after each team’s first game? Then gradually edit in more as the season progresses. It wouldn’t be too difficult. Most camera operators can also do editing nowadays. I think the AFL do something like this, so that by the time for finals it’s all up to date (unless they want to emphasise historical elements).

Is it that expensive to put a highlights clip together?

Depends on whether they outsource the editing I guess.

We know the NBL foots the bill for production costs. If they pay the camera crews etc to record each game, they could stipulate that each game gets certain packages, including highlights for promo and intro clips. It could easily be negotiated as an overall service. Whoever edits the game highlights for their website could do it.

Cheaper? Only if not negotiated in a package deal.

However it's happened, it could be rectified easily for next season.

Given the highlights etc they've been doing on their productions the capabilities are there and the narrator aspect it’s clear they have as well.

The Friday night footy type intro would be a good addition to avoid the generic start to the coverage.
