Lithuanian IPTV provider nets NBA TV

Basketball is big in Lithuania, and now fans of NBA players Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Linas Kleiza and Darius Songaila who live in Lithuania can watch their countrymen on the nation's TEO IPTV network. TEO announced its addition of NBA TV to its 'Interactive GALA' IPTV and 'Digital GALA' DTT service. It claims to be the first service provider in the region to offer the channel.

"The tradition of watching basketball with friends is deep in the blood of every Lithuanian," said Nerijus Ivanauskas, Chief Marketing Officer for TEO, in a post at IPTV News. "Now it will no longer be necessary to wait for the once-a-year appearances of the country's national team or the games of Lithuanian clubs."

Too bad TEO and NBA TV weren't around when Arvydas Sabonis was still playing.
