Similar to NFL RedZone, such a program would whip around live NBA contests to showcase the most important in-game moments of the night.

Like DAZN’s newly-launched MLB RedZone-style show Change Up, the NBA highlights-driven offering would be available as part of a subscription to the DAZN app – which currently costs $20 per month.

DAZN, which launched in the United States last year and is primarily known for providing combat sports content, streamed NBA games to Germany, Austria and Switzerland last season.

London-based holding company Perform Group, which launched DAZN internationally in 2016, currently manages official NBA websites in 15 countries.

As ESPN President in 2014, current DAZN Chairman John Skipper consummated a nine-year, $12.6B media rights agreement between the NBA and ESPN.

UPDATE: DAZN has confirmed our report that the streaming service is indeed, “looking into the rights for an NBA RedZone property,” to TheBigLead.com.
