Basketball Returns on Buzzer

Basketball Returns on Buzzer

Last week, we announced two exciting milestones for Buzzer as we extended our multi-year partnerships with the NBA and WNBA – just in time for the return of the 2022-2023 NBA season! This means more live hoops for fans – wherever they are, delivered right to your phone.

Buzzer exists to simplify the viewing experience: get notified when things get exciting, drop into our app, and watch live - it’s that simple. Via microtransactions or redeeming credits, you can watch the best moments in basketball on Buzzer’s mobile app.

Buzzer Beater? We got you. Your bet coming down to the wire? We got you. Devin Booker going for 50? We got you. 

This is our first renewal and we are thrilled that the NBA and WNBA want to run it back with us. This is a testament to our shared vision of bringing a personalized, curated, and frictionless experience to the next generation of fans. 

And the industry agrees.

“Buzzer has proven to be successful at reaching next generation fans, and the partnership renewals with both the NBA and WNBA are a testament to Buzzer’s unique approach to driving an incremental audience who aren’t otherwise tuning into traditional television.”

Our renewal with the WNBA also represents Buzzer’s continued commitment to leveling the playing field. We strive to advance the representation and live distribution of women’s sports by making it even easier to discover and access exciting moments in women’s basketball.

“It's exciting to see the continued partnership between WNBA and Buzzer, two organizations that are meaningfully advancing women's sports. I talk a lot about access and when it comes to sports, access for fans to tune into games live is so important. Buzzer curates personalized moments tailored to fans' interests, and the WNBA has no shortage of exciting moments. See you this summer!”

We’ve always looked at Buzzer as a place to build community and our partnerships with the NBA and WNBA accelerate this mission. It also reinforces our commitment to the democratization of access to live sports and supporting fan engagement across the broader and ever-evolving live sports ecosystem.

So, celebrate with us! 

NBA League Pass is live now on Buzzer and the WNBA returns next spring. We’re gifting new users credits so you can seamlessly drop into the action, courtesy of Buzzer.

Follow your favorite players and teams or track your bets to watch if they hit live. We’ll let you know when the moment strikes for the next Buzzer Beater.

Don’t miss,
