SIRIUS Becomes the Official Satellite Radio Partner of the NBA - - SIRIUS Delivers More Than 1000 Live Games Per Season - - SIRIUS Launches NBA Radio on SIRIUS, the First 24/7 Year-Round NBA Radio Channel
The partnership makes SIRIUS the broadcaster of more live NBA games than any other radio outlet. As part of their original agreement, in February 2003, the NBA became the first major professional sports league to provide live games on SIRIUS.
SIRIUS and the NBA have launched NBA Radio on SIRIUS, the first 24/7, year-round radio channel devoted to the NBA. Airing on SIRIUS' channel 127, NBA Radio on SIRIUS features content from NBA TV -- including news, highlights and features on the league, its teams and players -- and will showcase specialized programming that will be heard exclusively on SIRIUS.
SIRIUS is the exclusive satellite radio provider of an extensive programming package that features more than 1,000 regular season games, plus every game of the NBA Playoffs and The Finals. SIRIUS has the exclusive national satellite radio rights to NBA team radio broadcasts and will air regular season games from every NBA team. Throughout the regular season, SIRIUS will, in most cases, air the home team's local radio broadcast. During the NBA Playoffs and The Finals, SIRIUS will offer the home team, visiting team and national radio broadcasts.
