The NBA 2K League announced Tuesday that YouTube will be live streaming every game of the 2019 season. Each game, as well as highlights, will be featured on the official NBA 2K League YouTube Channel.
YouTube’s relationship is similar to the one the 2K League shares with Twitch, as more than 230 regular-season, tournament and NBA 2K League Playoff and Finals games combined will stream live from the NBA 2K League Studio Powered by Intel in Long Island City, New York.
The 2019 season began April 2 with The TIPOFF powered by AT&T, the first of three important tournaments spread across the season. All 21 teams in the 2K League will compete for The TIPOFF prize pool worth $120,000.
The NBA has a long and successful partnership with YouTube dating back to the launch of the orignal video host website in 2005. In fact, YouTube TV became the first presenting partner of the NBA Finals and WNBA Finals in 2018.
