The BBC will air live NBA during the 2022/23 season, beginning with the NBA Paris game this week.

The Paris fixture, between the Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons, will broadcast on BBC3 and iPlayer from 8pm on 19 January. This will be followed up by four regular season games, two playoff games, one conference finals game and one NBA Finals game, together with select highlights, and an end of season review show.

For the first match, Jeanette Kwakye will present in the studio alongside London Lions’ Ovie Soko and NBA fan and comedian Nathan Caton. Commentary will come from Niall Gray and Rob Paternostro, with Nesta McGregor on site in the Accor Arena to report on the atmosphere in Paris.

NBA is usually shown on Sky Sports in the UK, which will air 135 regular season games, the NBA All-Star Weekend, the playoffs, conference finals and NBA Finals for the 2022/23 season. It also offers free-to-air coverage, with the weekly primetime Sunday match shown on the Sky Sports YouTube channel.

The competition is also available through the NBA League Pass and NBA TV, which were recently integrated into a redesigned NBA app. The app includes live coverage, highlights, documentaries, lifestyle content, and more.
