I’ve been looking all over the web for the complete TV schedule on ABC2 for the Basketball World Cup and I can’t find it so i thought I would list them here. The best news is they are going to stream both the Australian Games and USA games live on free to air – no foxtel and all the crap ads.

The schedule below is taken from http://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/basketball-mens-world-cup/. I have also created a public google calendar with all the times I know of so far, its at the bottom of the post. I couldn’t be bothered creating an outlook friendly copy. Sincerest appo logies.

Also, sorry for the game description text, its from the might of the ABC website. I would have done my own but you know how it is, lazy.

Looks like I might have to take Wed 3rd Sept off though, 3 games in 1 day :) One thing that is a real shame is there will be no Argentina or Spain games, or Canada for that matter until they get to the finals. Obviously I want the Aussies to do well but with Paddy Mills injured its going to be tough… but my next fav is Spain. Go the Gasols!

Date Game
Sunday 31 Aug 2014, 1:25am AUS v SLO First up Australia will meet Slovenia in their first pool game. Go the Boomers!
Sunday 31 Aug 2014, 5:15am USA v FIN I think the game starts at 6 so there might be a pregame show? ABC will be screening all the TEAM USA games from the FIBA Basketball World Cup. First up is the live coverage of the match between USA and Finland from Bilbao in Spain.

Tuesday 9 Sep 2014, 11:55pm Elimination Final

There is also some sort of basketball highlight/comedy show I haven’t heard of called Double Dribble starting on the Saturday 30th at 8:50pm. Could be good, could be shite.


Hey ABC web designers guys, how hard is it to have a list like this on your website?
