The NBA’s “NBA Live” will debut this Sunday night on ESPN.
It’s a big step forward for the network, as the network is finally going to be able to bring its own programming to the platform.
In the coming months, ESPN will be rolling out live video on its platforms, including its digital platforms, in addition to offering its own slate of live content on the platform on a weekly basis.
In addition to the “NBALive” live stream, ESPN has also announced plans for “NBA Countdown,” a new series that will be hosted by former ESPN analyst Jason Whitlock and will air live on the network.
“NBA LIVE” will premiere this Sunday, May 12 at 8 p.m.
ET, with the show following “NBA Playgrounds,” the network’s annual NBA-themed college basketball series, beginning the next day at 10 p.o.m ET.
“The Heat” will air in the first quarter of June, and “The NBA Live” show will begin airing the following Sunday, June 14 at 8:30 p.c.
The “NBA” app for iOS and Android will debut later this month, with an “NBA Plus” subscription plan available.
