In an unprecedented move for a top-tier UK professional sporting league, all BBL Championship, Cup, Trophy and Play-Off games will be free-to-view on the BBL’s dedicated YouTube channel this season – either live or on-demand.
In addition, edited game highlights and the traditional top plays of the week will be joined by a new YouTube social show, scheduled to launch in December to provide a platform for players, coaches and fans to debate the hot-topics from the week’s sporting action.
Bob Hope, BBL’s Commercial Director said: “Being in control of our broadcast rights and moving all the action free-to-view will be a real game-changer. This move will allow increased viewing opportunities for our existing fanbase and will act as a prominent shop-window for attracting new fans to the BBL.
“This exciting move will see more eyes on the sport than ever, as there is a significant younger audience out there that we wish to engage with – this audience is of the generation that is not accustomed to paying for their sporting content, so with this move we are addressing their needs.”
