Basketball Australia (BA) has announced new broadcast arrangements for the 2020 Chemist Warehouse WNBL season, providing the league with more visibility than ever before.
The agreement with partners the Foxtel Group and the ABC will see all 60 games of the 2020 season available LIVE across Australia.
Fox Sports will broadcast LIVE four games per week (7.00pm AEDT Thursday, 5.00pm AEDT Saturday, 1.00pm AEDT Sunday and 3.00pm AEDT Sunday) on Foxtel and Kayo, with the ABC simulcasting on both their primary channel and ABC iview the 5.00pm Saturday and 3.00pm Sunday games.
In addition to streaming the games that will be broadcast on Foxtel, Kayo will also stream LIVE all remaining games of the 2020 season which will involve multi-camera and expert commentary.
Following three seasons without free-to-air coverage, the WNBL was aired by public-service broadcaster SBS in the 2018-19 season. The deal was completed with Fox Sports, which acquired WNBL rights in Australia from Basketball Australia in a three-season deal, from 2017-18 to 2019-20.
