Bleacher Report is proud to announce the launch of a brand-new live sports streaming service known as B/R Live.
B/R Live will allow fans to find and watch their favorite sports content anywhere, anytime and on the screen of their choice.
Thousands of live sporting events will be available through the B/R Live streaming service, making it a central hub for passionate fans to find and consume content most meaningful to them.
Turner Sports also announced B/R will distribute an updated NBA League Pass—single games and League Pass' upcoming full new offering, which will include the ability to watch partial games at a reduced price—beginning with the 2018-19 regular season. That will mean access to nearly 1,000 live out-of-market NBA games through the new platform.
“The distribution of content continues to evolve and Turner has invested in creating and delivering premium, multi-platform experiences including our soon-to-be-launched B/R Live sports streaming service,” said David Levy, President of Turner. “Our long-standing partnership with the NBA has been led by a shared vision to provide fans with the most engaging experiences that match a wide variety of viewing preferences. This is a game-changing initiative to provide fans with personalized access to premium NBA content. From games on TNT and NBA TV or the volume of out-of-market games through NBA League Pass, to the defining moments of a thrilling matchup with a compelling story arc, we’ll have it covered.”
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said he's excited about giving fans better ways to watch a live game that is already in progress.
“This offering is a new and exciting way for fans to experience live NBA action," Silver said. "Turner Sports shares our commitment to innovation and to making our games even more accessible.”
B/R Live is set to launch next week and will be absolutely free to everyone on a trial basis until June. In April, it will begin by featuring live content from The Spring League, the World Armwrestling League and more, before eventually including much more, like UEFA Champions League, NBA, NCAA and PGA coverage.
