Ever since the 2019-2020 NBA season was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, fans from all over the world have no doubt clamored for basketball action. For NBA fans who are into esports, the NBA 2K League at least pushed through as the league tipped off back in May 5.
For Southeast Asian basketball and esports fans, the NBA 2K League will finally be easier to watch as eGG Network has recently announced that it will air the NBA 2K League in Southeast Asia–this marks the first time that the NBA 2K League will be televised in the region.
Beginning now, the NBA 2K League games will be broadcast on eGG Network in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Myanmar and Australia. Specifically, the NBA 2K League’s Week 6 of regular-season competition will air on the network, and will continue through to the NBA 2K League Finals.
Aside from the remaining regular season games and the upcoming playoffs, eGG Network will also air the NBA 2K League’s three in-season tournaments: THE TIPOFF, THE TURN, and THE TICKET.
In case you’re unfamiliar, the NBA 2K League is a joint venture between the NBA and NBA 2K game publisher Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., and it’s the first official esports league operated official by a US pro sports league. The league currently has 23 teams, including 2019 champions T-Wolves Gaming, 2019 runner-up 76ers GC, and Shanghai’s Gen.G Tigers.
