This service offered viewers all round the world a chance to watch at least one game per week live via a subscription.
Although neither service was free, other TV channels and network providers picked up the signals and broadcasted games.
Unfortunately the broadcasting deal was not perfect because of local media rights which blocked the service from certain countries.
This season the deal with Eurosport for streaming EuroLeague Women games is over and FIBA Europe has changed its policy.
The policy is as follows:
1. First-party rights (the rights to broadcast in the club's home country) of home games belong to the home club. All other rights, including Second-party rights and Internet rights may be exploited by FIBA Europe.
2. If a club produces a game for TV, they are obliged to provide a satellite uplink for FIBA Europe TV.
3. If an uplink is made available then the information about satellite parameters must be communicated to FIBA Europe.
What all this really means is that the clubs are responsible for making matches available.
Unfortunately in France Bourges Basket, Montpellier and Tarbes have not put anything in place for live streams and SPORT+ who have the television rights have no plans to cover the group games.
Tarbes do provide a web radio link with PICFM in Tarbes so it is possible to listen to French commentary of their games. At Bourges Basket the local newspaper Le Berry runs a live interactive blog.
For the second phase of the group phase you will be able to watch some of the EuroLeague Women matches from around Europe live here at womensbasketball-in-france.com.
If more than two matches are streaming live at the same time then our what's new page will also be used for broadcasts.
Some of the online betting services as well as online web services such as justin.tv sometime broadcast games.
FIBATV have recently made the game of the week available for free viewing on demand on their own TV platform.
Polish club sides Lotos Gdynia and CCC Polkowice have a deal with TVP Sport that enable them to provide streams even when they are playing away.
UMMC Ekaterinburg also provide links to all their matches via different channels in Russia so we are not able to provide the information for a regular channel.
Our colleagues from Spain lokosxelbaloncesto.com have a YouTube channel with archived games from matches played in Spain. You can find their channel by placing the following link into your browser youtube.com/user/lokosxelbaloncesto.
We have provided a list of TV partners and regular web stream channels for each club below:
