The BBL and WBBL play-off finals are to be shown live on the BBC Red Button, and online via the BBC Sport website.

For the first time, both finals, to be played at the O2 in London, will take place on the same day - Sunday, 8 May.

The BBL play-off final starts at 15:30 BST, with the WBBL showpiece at 18:00.

"We are delighted to be able to partner with the BBC to show both finals live," said BBL commercial director Bob Hope. "It promises to be a great day for the basketball community."

The BBL hopes having both finals on the same day will widen the event's appeal.

Hope added: "Hopefully having the BBC coverage will mean we can attract even more new fans to the sport."
