New Zealand's National Basketball League has launched a direct-to-consumer global streaming service that will allow viewers outside of the country to pay to watch coverage of the competition. Profits from LeaguePass.co.nz will be split three ways - between the league, the clubs, and the players. Access to coverage of the full 2020 season is available at a discounted rate of NZ$14.99 ($9.28/€8.46) until June 5, after which the price increases to NZ$24.99. 'Day passes' covering two games cost NZ$4.95. The NBL tips off a truncated, 56-game season on June 23 - Stuff.co.nz

Pay-television broadcaster Sky New Zealand has raised NZ$119m ($74m/€67m) by selling new shares, part of an effort to raise a total of NZ$157m to help the company through the Covid-19 downturn - The Market Herald
