Six of the seven games will be broadcast through Foxtel on ESPN. Due to there being three games on TV on the second Saturday, the Adelaide 36ers game won’t be available.
To watch the coverage on ESPN, you will need a valid Foxtel TV subscription complete with the sports package.
There are a number of ways to stream the game online.
Firstly, it’s worth noting the Adelaide 36ers versus Utah Jazz game will be only available by a live stream on NBL.TV. The remainder of the games will be delayed on the platform.
The other way to tune into all seven games will be through the NBA League Pass.
Don’t forget, The Roar will also be covering each match with a live blog.
