Oct 6, 2014


NEW YORK — The NBA has extended its television deals with ESPN and TNT for nine years.

The league announced Monday that the new contracts will run through the 2024-25 season, and the NBA will receive $24 billion over that time span, according to the New York Times. The previous eight-year agreements end after the 2015-16 season.

The NBA received about $930 million annually under the old deals. The NBA Finals remain on ABC, ESPN’s broadcast partner. ESPN/ABC and TNT will continue to split the conference finals.

ESPN and ABC are adding 10 regular-season games, bringing their total to 100. TNT will air an additional 12 games over the second half of the season on nights other than its traditional Thursday, bringing its total to 64.
