The National Basketball Association (NBA) has unveiled a new betting-focused broadcast option which will feature on its NBA League Pass and NBA TV networks. Nine NBABet Stream broadcasts will be made available over the course of the rescheduled 2019/20 season in Orlando, featuring separate commentary and analysis, alternative camera angles, and enhanced graphics centered on betting odds and other relevant data.
NBA Digital has launched new alternate betting-focused broadcast option, presenting nine “NBABet Stream” broadcasts on NBA League Pass and NBA TV. These betting-focused game presentations feature separated commentary and analysis, alternative camera angles, and enhanced graphics centered on betting odds and other related data.
The first telecast aired on Aug. 3 during the Thunder-Nuggets matchup.
Betting analysts from The Action Network, Bleacher Report, Yahoo Sports, and others will provide commentary throughout the game broadcasts. BetMGM – the presenting partner of NBABet Stream – is providing real-time betting lines and statistics for NBABet Stream.
Those without access to NBA TV via their cable providers can purchase the direct-to-consumer subscription through NBA.com.
Upcoming NBABet Stream broadcasts on NBA TV include Pelicans-Kings on Aug. 6, 76ers-Trailblazers on Aug. 9, Mavericks-Jazz on Aug. 10 and Pacers-Rockets on Aug. 12, while NBA League Pass will carry NBABet Stream presentations of Magic-Pacers on Aug. 4, Nuggets-Spurs on Aug. 5, Wizards-Pelicans on Aug. 7, and Suns-76ers on Aug. 11.
The move represents the latest betting push from the NBA, after Yahoo Sports expanded League Pass’ live fantasy and betting offering as an official marketing partner of the league last week.
The new deal includes allowing Yahoo Sports, Yahoo Fantasy and Yahoo Sportsbook to distribute live, out-of-market games in League Pass and engage with fans through digital overlays. It will also include the creation of two shows focused on fantasy and betting to coincide with the NBA Conference Finals and NBA Finals.
