NBA 2K League Matches to Broadcast on ESPN2 on Tuesdays

By Gabriela Vatu / May 6, 2020

The NBA 2K League is coming to mainstream TV! Although it's been established for a few years, the NBA 2K League will only now become available on traditional TV after the COVID-19 pandemic has shut down all live sports for a while.

According to a fresh announcement, ESPN has signed a deal with the NBA 2K League to broadcast the esports games on ESPN2, as well as on the ESPN app, at the same time with the Twitch and YouTube streams.

The announcement reveals that ESPN2 will air the NBA2K League matches every Tuesday at 7 PM ET through May 19th. All matches that are scheduled for Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays will go straight for the ESPN app and at 7 PM ET. The deal also includes events beyond May 26th, but the schedule for those will be announced at a later date.

This will be the first time NBA 2K League matches are broadcast on TV in the United States. The games will also be available on ESPN platforms in other countries where the channel is available, throughout the Caribbean, Latin America, Oceania, and Sub-Saharan Africa.

It looks like all 23 NBA 2K League teams will participate in regular-season gameplay, with four matches each night. These will be played in a best-of-three format.

You can stream ESPN2 online through several live TV platforms, including Hulu, Sling TV Orange or Orange + Blue, and YouTube TV. It's also possible to stream ESPN2 on the ESPN website, but you'll need to log in to an account with your TV provider credentials.
