The British Basketball League has secured a streaming partnership with Fubo Sports – a leading sports-first TV streaming platform – to bring British basketball action to further audiences across the United States and Canada.
Under this agreement, the live and free TV network from FuboTV will stream a selection of weekend games as part of their diverse sports programming. The season programming schedule will be unveiled very soon.
Fubo Sports’ inaugural broadcast is slated to hit screens on Christmas Eve, when the London Lions host the Sheffield Sharks, with fans able to catch the Sharks in action once again on New Year’s Eve when they welcome the Manchester Giants.
The deal allows North American fans to watch U.S. and Canadian players play ball on the other side of the Atlantic, further adding to Fubo Sports’ international sports programming.
Looking ahead to the New Year, fans can also catch British Basketball League action on Fubo Sports’ YouTube channel, starting from January 2024.
“The British Basketball League is excited to bring its high-quality content to Fubo Sports that showcases the skill, passion, and excitement that define British basketball”, said Aaron Radin, British Basketball League Chief Executive Officer.
“This partnership marks a significant step forward in expanding the global footprint of the League and elevating the profile of British basketball on the international stage.”
Seriös Group Newcastle Eagles’ first game shown live on Fubo Sports is scheduled for early January with details confirmed and published on the platform’s guide in due course.
