The New Orleans Pelicans are thrilled to unveil the television and radio broadcast schedule for the upcoming 2023-24 NBA season.

They will kick off their regular season on Wednesday, October 25, against the Memphis Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum. The local television schedule for the 2023-24 season includes 39 thrilling home games and 39 exciting away games.

Bally Sports will be the exclusive broadcaster for 78 out of the 80 regular season games. Fans can catch the action by streaming the game via the Bally Sports app. The two games not covered by Bally Sports will air exclusively on TNT: mark your calendars for December 19 against Memphis and April 11 when we face off against Sacramento. Details for the remaining two regular season games, contingent on the NBA In-Season Tournament results, will be shared at a later date.

Bally Sports won't just bring you the games; they'll also provide extensive team coverage, including Pelicans Live pregame and postgame content. Plus, don't miss Pelicans Insider, a bi-weekly program featuring player and coach profiles, game highlights, and behind-the-scenes content.

In addition to the 78 regular season games, Bally Sports will broadcast the Pelicans' preseason opener at the Smoothie King Center against the Orlando Magic on October 10. The other three pre-season matches (October 12 vs. Houston, October 14 at Atlanta, and October 17 at Orlando) will be streamed live on Pelicans.com and via the Pelicans Mobile App.

Bally Sports New Orleans can be accessed through various providers in the region, including AT&T U-Verse, Cox Communications, DirecTV, DirecTV Stream, Fubo, and Spectrum. To check the availability of Bally Sports New Orleans in your area, visit www.getmyhometeams.com.
