Amazon Prime Video India will livestream the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) games in India, Amazon Prime Video and the WNBA announced on Thursday.

After the acquisition of New Zealand Cricket rights, Prime Video India is expanding the live showcase of global sports with the WNBA’s 25th season.

The deal marked Prime Video’s first acquisition of exclusive streaming rights in India to a women’s professional sports league.

In India, members can stream the next WNBA game between the New York Liberty and the Seattle Storm on August 21, 4:30 am IST, followed by five other games ending with the game between Atlanta and Los Angeles on September 17. For the viewers who have missed out on the previous games, an entire replay will be available on the app in English.

Chaitanya Divan, Amazon Prime Video India spokesperson, said, “We are happy to bring the WNBA games to our viewers. We are confident that the world-class, friction-free live experience of the WNBA games on Amazon Prime Video will delight the growing base of basketball fans in India.”

“We are pleased to offer WNBA games to our fans in India through Amazon Prime Video,” said Sunny Malik, Head of Global Content and Media Distribution, NBA India.
