The National Basketball Association announced on Wednesday that it is partnering with YouTube to launch a new channel in sub-Saharan Africa that will feature live NBA games.

The NBA Africa channel will feature two live games per week in primetime for the rest of the 2018-19 season, including the playoffs, conference finals and the finals. The first two live game broadcasts will take place on Sunday, March 24 and will feature the Charlotte Hornets hosting the Boston Celtics, followed by the L.A. Clippers visiting the New York Knicks.

In addition to live games, the NBA Africa YouTube channel will feature original and archived programming, including a collaboration with Africa-based YouTube creators on original content, a customized weekly magazine show and NBA documentaries featuring current and former African players and legends.
March 24th will be the day when the NBA Africa outlet will be on Youtube.
