Every game of the 2020-21 NBL season is LIVE, FREE and in HD via SBS On Demand, with select games also live on SBS VICELAND.

Additionally, SBS is broadcasting multiple 2020-21 NBA regular season games per week in HD on SBS VICELAND and streamed live via SBS On Demand. 

SBS On Demand and SBS VICELAND will be the free-to-air home of the NBL once again, with the league announcing a revised schedule for the first two rounds of the season.

Defending champions Perth Wildcats are in quarantine in Western Australia after playing practice matches in Brisbane during the week, forcing their opening two matches to be postponed.

All NBL matches will be streamed live via SBS On Demand. Full match replays will be available via SBS On Demand approximately 12 hours after the live game finishes. In the meantime, viewers can enjoy mini-games, featuring game highlights.
