NBA, Twitter to Offer Iso-cam Stream for Some TNT Games
NEW YORK (AP) — NBA fans on Twitter will soon have a say in who they're watching.
The league, Twitter and Turner Sports announced a plan Wednesday where fans in the U.S. will be able to vote for which player they want to see in an isolated camera view stream for 20 select regular-season and playoff games on TNT this season.
The debut of the iso-cam stream will be next month at the All-Star Game in Charlotte.
Fans can tweet their vote early in games, and the stream will run with commentary during the second half of those games as a second-screen offering.
The NBA has more than 27 million followers on Twitter, which the league says is the most of any sports league in the world.
