LONDON (AP) - The NBA is returning to British television.
BT Sport secured exclusive U.K. broadcast rights to NBA games in a multi-year deal announced Thursday. Terms were not disclosed.
Coverage starts Sunday with the game between the Indiana Pacers and Los Angeles Clippers. The agreement covers up to 200 games throughout the season, including seven live games per week.
