Re: NBA 2013/2014 on sky sports???

Good evening Henry737,

 

Thanks for taking your time to post and welcome to the forum!

 

I would love to have a definite answer for you on this but at this stage nothing has been confirmed as to whether the NBA will return to Sky Sports. I will certainly investigate this further and once I have an answer I will let you know as soon as possible.

 

In the meantime if you need anything else please let me know.

 

Thanks

Have you found anything out Liam? With only 2 weeks until the start of the season it's getting late.

 

I'll be looking to cancel my SS subscription for the NBA League Pass if it's not on.

Hi,

I've also been keeping an eye on this forum waiting for an answer.  I know ESPN are showing some games, but not all.  I really hope Sky will be showing the Heat/Bulls game.  We've only got a few weeks left.

Let me know if you find anything.

Hi Paracetemol, where have you seen that about ESPN? From what I can see they have no rights to the NBA so far.

 

Liam have you found anything out yet? 19 days ago you said you would investigate this. I and many others who have read this thread would certainly appreciate a reply.

Well I can't say that I've actually watched a game on there, but it is on their online schedule.  Here I'll give you a link:

ESPN Schedule

You can see that the Nets, Celtics game is on on the 23rd.

I hope that helps.  I really hope Sky do start showing it though, because it was the main reason we recently brought the Sports package.

Hi Alan can I ask where that's come from? Is there a deal for the season?

If correct that's brilliant news!

@SuperDerby88 

 

Sky Sports have the NBA rights from 2013/2014 and 2015.

 

I'll find where I found out and post here.

All that says is when the fixtures are, nothing about TV rights!

Agreed, that link says nothing about a Sky deal. Kevin Cadle tweeted today and said that he doesn't know if Sky are picking up the contract.

 

The season starts on Tuesday. Will SOMEONE please provide us with some info?

I'm really hoping it'll be confirmed soon, NBA is one of the main reasons we upgraded to sky sports...

LiamC88,

You said you would investigate this and get back to me. Can you now confirm whether Sky will cover the upcoming NBA season please!?

Many thanks and look forward to hearing from you very soon.
