By Community | October 8, 2014
Euroleague Basketball has signed three broadcast agreements in the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic and Slovakia from the start of next season.
Fans in the United Kingdom will once again get their Euroleague thrills through London-based BT, one of the biggest providers of digital TV for UK homes. BT joined Euroleague Basketball’s group of broadcasting partners for last season’s Final Four and now plans to offer its viewers the best in continental basketball for the full 2014-15 season, including the full-length weekly magazine One Devotion.
Euroleague Basketball and Czech TV will deliver a minimum of 60 Turkish Airlines Euroleague games to fans in that country. The games will be shown over the air on Czech TV’s CT4 or streamed on the Internet via the channel’s website. The agreement gives CT4 the rights to two games per week as well as One Devotion: The Euroleague Basketball Magazine. The network has the right to broadcast the 2015 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four live or on delay as well.
Euroleague Basketball has also come to terms with Slovak Sport to bring regular coverage of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague to Slovakia. Slovak Sport, a Pay TV channel with 200,000 subscribers, will broadcast the Euroleague Game of the Week throughout the 2014-15 season.
