How To Watch
Every one of the 199 regular season games will be live streamed on the league's Twitch channel.
NBA Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum said, "Twitch is a completely different experience than watching on TV, it’s information overload. But that’s how this young demographic is consuming the sport today.”
On the eve of the historic first season opener, the league announced it would be supplying all its players with HyperX headsets.
The league's managing director Brendan Donohue said, “Communicating with teammates during play is vital for success and partnering with HyperX will allow our players to compete at their best.”
Dell's Alienware hardware will be used during live studio productions of league competitions.
In March, Dell announced the opening of a new state-of-the-art 8,000-square-foot Alienware training facility for Team Liquid, an esports team partially owned by Golden State Warriors owner Peter Gruber and Wizards owner Ted Leonsis.
