It would not be surprising, if this coming 2019/20 NBL season ends up racking the highest ever viewers from the non-Australia segment.
The announcements of high-profile NBA lottery prospects LaMelo Ball and R.J. Hampton joining the NBL, instead of heading for the tried-and-tested NCAA college route, raised attention from basketball fans everywhere.
The NBL has basketball fans on alert, all around the world, and the upcoming season will again be accessible to a large global audience.
The Pick and Roll has confirmed that FloHoops, the basketball arm of innovative digital streaming service FloSports, will provide live and on-demand coverage of NBL games to audiences in U.S. and Canada on FloHoops.com.
Streaming more than 10,000 live competitions per year, FloSports has emerged as the global leader in live, in-depth, and on-demand digital coverage for passionate sports fans. The NBL will join the likes of EuroCup and EuroLeague as international basketball leagues being beamed to a global audience in the FloHoops platform.
In another boost for the league's quest to become a global brand, FloHoops will see Ball and Hampton, the NBL's high profile Next Stars duo, become accessible to basketball fans all around the world.
Update: the NBL announced on 23 Sep that a selection of games from the 2019/20 Hungry Jack’s NBL Season live on Facebook Watch in the United States.
The partnership with Facebook calls for 52 NBL games featuring NBA Draft prospects LaMelo Ball and RJ Hampton to be streamed on Facebook Watch via the NBL Facebook page.
