Final Four 2012, IstanbulThe growth in popularity of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four around the globe can be seen once again with a record 66 television networks set to broadcast European basketball’s premier event this week to 174 countries on six continents. Likewise, the number of networks that will broadcast courtside from Sinan Erdem Arena in Istanbul on Friday and Sunday has also grown to 14 in 13 different languages.

Euroleague Basketball wishes to highlight the outstanding work of the host broadcaster, NTV Spor of Turkey, which has helped upgrade the coverage of the Final Four games and the festivities surrounding them. Through NTV Spor, the official press conferences, the EFES Pilsener Awards Ceremony and the Nike International Junior Tournament will all be broadcast live as well for the first time. Those events and dozens of highlights, features and special interviews may be seen on Euroleague Basketball’s on-line TV channel, Euroleague.TV.

Among the many broadcasting networks, Euroleague Basketball wishes to draw special attention to the ESPN family, which will bring the Final Four to as many as 101 countries; Setanta and Supersport, with an audience reaching 43 countries across Africa; Canal+, which is the exclusive rights holder for broadcasts in seven countries in Europe and Africa and the non-exclusive rights holder in 58 more; Al Jazeera, whose broadcasts will feature in 22 countries and territories throughout the Middle East; Viasat, which will air games in seven northern European counties; and Chinese broadcasters CCTV, CSPN and Guangdong TV, reaching vast audiences in that country.
