Media

This will be the first season of the new nine-year U.S. television contracts with ABC, ESPN, TNT, and NBA TV.

In Canada, rights are divided between the TSN and Sportsnet groups of channels and NBA TV Canada. These rights are of indefinite duration, as NBA TV Canada is owned by the Toronto Raptors' ownership group, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, which in turn is controlled by the parent companies of TSN and Sportsnet (Bell Canada and Rogers Communications, respectively). TSN and Sportsnet each have rights to 41 Toronto Raptors regular season games and over 100 other regular season games,[75][76] and are expected (as in 2015–16) to share coverage of NBA All-Star Weekend, and split coverage of the playoffs and the NBA Finals. NBA TV Canada will carry 105 additional regular season games,[77] plus replays of other games carried on TSN and Sportsnet.
