FIBA launches Courtside 1891 live streaming platform

The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) has announced a new streaming platform for fans to follow the sport. 

The organisation said that the new platform, Courtside 1891, is replacing LiveBasketball.tv as the primary live streaming subscription product of national team basketball.

This month, Courtside 1891 will offer live coverage of the February 2022 window of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Qualifiers. Games across all four regional World Cup Qualifiers will be live streamed on the platform throughout the window.

The platform will also offer live scores from the main elite basketball competitions and Leagues across the world while also aggregating highlights and other content from a range of sources.

Courtside 1891 is available on the web, and as an app on iOS and Android. An annual pass to the app costs €32.99, while a pass for this month’s world cup qualifiers costs €7.99

The relaunched platform replaces LiveBasketball.tv, which was launched via a partnership with Perform in 2013.

FIBA also has a broadcast deal with Amazon’s live streaming platform Twitch, with the association streaming 600 hours of live matches per year.
