An update on sports coverage

Well maybe I spoke too soon because I’ve found that UKTV are starting to broadcast UKTV Slam basketball live on standard tv as well as on their subscription site.

Apparently they have done a deal with the bbl too because there is an announcement on the bbl site hinting at more tv coverage next season. I guess we are starting to see basketball really take off again in this country which is nice to see. Away from what UKTV are offering, by far the best coverage is from five who seem to be pretty much the only ones who realise that there is a significant demand in the UK for live US sports coverage.
