Here's all the ways you can watch the National Basketball League, aka NBA, in the UK.

Already one of the most watched sports the world over, the popularity of basketball and the NBA continues to grow in the UK as fans stay up late to watch their favourite team.

The success of Netflix series The Last Dance, the documentary which delves deep into the career of Michael Jordan and the all conquering Chicago Bulls 90s team, coinciding with teams like the Denver Nuggets winning their first ever NBA Finals last year, have seen interest grow and grow.

The popularity of the NBA has now even seen around one game a season take place in Europe, with the Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers set to face off on January 11 at Paris later this week.

However, unlike other popular US sports like the NHL and Ice Hockey, the NBA is not shown on Sky Sports or freeview, leaving many viewers wondering where they can catch every NBA at the click of a button.

Wanting to catch every minute of NBA action in the 23/24 season? Here are all the ways you can watch NBA in the UK.

When does the NBA finish, when is the final of the NBA season

The NBA regular season is currently well underway after it began back on October 25. The regular season is scheduled to end this coming April, with the final game played on the 14th of the month following a huge 82 games each.

However, that's when the real fun begins as just six days later, on Saturday 20 April, the all important play-off season begins and runs until May/June. The NBA is split into two sections, Western and Eastern Conferences, and the top eight teams from each side then take part in the play-offs.

The final of the NBA play-offs is a little more simpler. The two teams who make it to the final then take part in a best-of-seven set of games, with the first team to win four games crowned as the 'world' champions.

The first four dates in the final take place on June 6, 9, 12 and 14 with further games on the 17, 20 and 23 taking place if required.
