FIBA Basketball’s Courtside 1891 streaming service now available for early access – The Streamable
FIBA, basketball’s international governing body, has announced a new way for fans to get their basketball fix with the introduction of Courtside 1891, a new subscription streaming service packed with balls in live from around the world.
The new app replaces LiveBasketball.tv as the main national basketball team live streaming subscription product. The first event fans will be able to see on the app is the February 2022 window of FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 qualifying matches. The matches of the four Regional Qualifiers for the World Cup will be broadcast live on the platform throughout the period.
After its official launch, Courtside 1891 will provide an even wider range of basketball content – including live scores from major competitions and elite basketball leagues around the world – while aggregating highlights and other content from various sources.
Fans will have the ability to create profiles, allowing them to cultivate their own truly personalized basketball content experiences. The platform aims to provide streams, schedules and scores centered on an individual user’s preferences to become a game hub designed just for them.
The NBA has succeeded with its own digital platform in the form of NBA League Pass, so it’s no surprise that other basketball organizations are trying to capitalize on the ever-growing interest in basketball in the world. NBA League Pass offers multiple subscription tiers and is available on almost any device, from TV to desktop to mobile.
Whether fans want access to single team or all 30 team games, an ad-free experience, or are only interested in NBA TV content, they can customize their experience through League Pass. FIBA hopes to have similar success and options with its Courtside 1891 platform.
Starting today, fans interested in signing up can visit the Courtside 1891 website and sign up for a 25% discount on an annual pass. Currently, fans can get one year of service for $31.99. The Courtside 1891 app is available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
