NBL Live: Selected Division One Men's and Women's games to be streamed

NBL Live is back to stream National Basketball League Men’s and Women’s Division One action in the 2022/23 season.  

Fourteen regular-season games will be broadcast on the Basketball England YouTube channel with the opening fixtures in October and November confirmed. 

Live coverage of the NBL Cup Finals and Playoffs is also scheduled.  

The selected games will feature professional filming and production standards with respected commentator John Hobbs joined by a selection of guest co-commentators on the mic. 

Hobbs said: “We are really looking forward to continuing our coverage this season and highlighting and showcasing the clubs and fantastically talented players who play in the men’s and women’s top divisions." 

NBL Live will start on Sunday 30 October with the D1M clash between Reading Rockets and Hemel Storm at Loddon Valley (4pm). 

On November 19 there will be a fascinating men’s and women’s double-header from Solent featuring two promoted teams as the Kestrels women take on Brent Bulls (3.30pm) and the men square off against Manchester Magic (6pm). 

Further NBL Live fixtures will be confirmed at regular intervals through the season.  

More live coverage 

Alongside flagship NBL Live selections, NBL rules for the 2022/23 season state that D1M clubs must stream at least five home games on the BE YouTube channel via their own coverage. D1W clubs encouraged to do likewise. 

Last season more than 120 D1M, D1W and L Lynch Trophy games were streamed by clubs via the BE channel. Eight/nine KitKing Trophy games have already featured on the BE channel so far this season. 

Gail Richards, BE Senior Delivery Manager for Leagues, Competitions and Events, said: 

“NBL Live is our flagship live streaming but we want clubs to broadcast games themselves as well to showcase the league to as many people as possible. 

“We are again making our BE YouTube channel available to host streams, providing game-day support, and are looking forward to seeing lots of live action on the BE channel this season.”
