The NBA is set to finalize new TV rights deals with Disney (ESPN), NBC, and Amazon starting in the 2025-26 season, per Sports Business Journal.

NBC will reportedly take over TNT’s “B” package for $2.6 billion annually, which may end TNT’s “Inside the NBA” show after next season. Warner Bros. Discovery, TNT’s owner, has matching rights and could legally challenge the deal’s “total value.”

NBC’s package will include a weekly Sunday night game, other prime-time slots, and second-round playoff games. ESPN will keep the “A” package, including the NBA Finals, for $2.8 billion a year.

Amazon’s deal, worth $1.8-$2 billion, covers the in-season tournament, play-in tournament, and first-round playoff games. NBC is also in talks to re-license John Tesh’s “Roundball Rock” theme.
