How to watch the NBA - LIVE, FREE and in HD - on SBS
Beginning with the 2019-20 NBA season, SBS will broadcast two live, regular season NBA games per week in HD on SBS VICELAND and streamed live via SBS On Demand.

Lucy and Adrian will deliver the best highlights and insights from the NBL, NBA and WNBA, and will be joined by special guest analysts and players to review and preview the leagues. 

Among a colourful suite of segments, the first two episodes of SBS Courtside will feature basketball legend, Paul Pierce, who famously played 19 seasons in the NBA.

Boomers and NBA star, Patty Mills, will also make an appearance, offering a unique perspective as he discusses the NBA and NBL leagues.   

SBS is the home of hoops – with two live, regular-season NBA games each week broadcast in HD on SBS VICELAND and SBS On Demand.

NBA games will also be available for catch up on SBS On Demand, while the basketball hub on the SBS Sport website is the home for game highlights, condensed mini games, interviews, features and all additional NBL, NBA and WNBA content. 

SBS will also broadcast one live WNBA game per week, throughout the 2020 WNBA regular season - which begins in May - and a selection of games from the first three WNBA play-offs. 

Under a two-year deal, fans will also have access to the entire 2019-20 NBL season for free, with 67 games broadcast on SBS VICELAND and all 126 games available live and free on SBS On Demand.
