The NBA said it has reached two eight-year deals to let Walt Disney Co.'s ABC and ESPN TV networks and Time Warner's TNT broadcast league games through 2016.
The agreements, financial terms of which were not disclosed, also expand the networks' rights to distribute the games and highlights on a variety of emerging digital platforms, including cell phones and Web sites.
The deals, which extend the current six-year contracts with the three networks that expired this year, keep nationally televised NBA games on ESPN on Wednesdays and Fridays, on TNT on Thursdays and on ABC on Sundays.
