In these challenging times, the ways in how we watch sport and support our favourite clubs is different and basketball is no exception.
That’s why we’ve introduced BBL Player, the new home of all the BBL action. For £19.99 a month, you can watch games live and on-demand in what promises to be one of the most exciting seasons yet. And if you don’t want to commit, that’s ok! You can pick and choose games to watch live for £4.99 a game.
Because of how the BBL is structured, all money goes direct to the clubs. If you choose a monthly subscription, you can choose a club for your subscription to support or if you don’t have a preference, your subscription equally supports the eligible clubs. If you buy an individual game pass, then that money goes to the home club. You can pause or cancel your subscription at any time.
