NBA TV Continues to Set Record Ratings During the 2011-12 Regular Season

2011-12 Regular-Season Games Outpacing Last Season's Viewership

NBA TV continues to set record ratings just over a month into the 2011-12 regular season. Through the first 34 games of the regular season, NBA TV is averaging 391,000 total viewers and 306,000 total households, up 74% and 78% respectively, compared to the same time last year. In addition, NBA TV has also shown the largest universe growth of any cable network since the start of the year with an increase of over 3.3 million households.

To date, the 2011-12 regular season has delivered three of the top five most-watched games ever on the network. The following are NBA TV's Top 5 most-watched games in total viewers (newly charted games in bold):

· Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs: 835,000 viewers (4/27/11, Playoffs)

· LA Lakers at LA Clippers: 756,000 viewers (1/14/12, Regular Season)

· Chicago Bulls at LA Clippers: 722,000 viewers (12/30/11, Regular Season)

· Portland Trailblazers at Miami Heat: 681,000 viewers (3/8/11, Regular Season)

NBA TV's popular Fan Night games - where fans vote for the games they want to see via NBA.com, NBA's Facebook page and Yahoo.com - are also up compared to the same time a year ago. The Jan. 17 Fan Night match-up between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat delivered the most-watched Fan Night game of 2011-12 regular season on NBA TV with 675,000 total viewers. The first seven Fan Night games of the regular season averaged 502,000 viewers and 400,000 households, up 35% and 45%, respectively, compared to the same time period last year.

NBA TV continues to average the youngest median age (34.4) of any sports network. NBA TV's key demographics are also up double and triple digits compared to the same time period of the 2010-11 regular season:
