Report: OKC Thunder could stream future games on Amazon Prime

The Oklahoma City Thunder could have a new home to carry their games in the future.

As Diamond Sports — the owner of Bally Sports — navigates bankruptcy, the Thunder and other teams might need to find a new media home to carry games after this season.

Last month, the NBA and Diamond Sports agreed to an extension that will allow the Thunder and 11 other teams to have the remainder of their 2023-24 season games carried on Bally Sports. After that though, OKC will enter media free agency.

A potential replacement could be Amazon Prime, which is in discussions with Diamond Sports about investing in Bally Sports, per The Wall Street Journal.

The online streaming service is already home to the NFL’s “Thursday Night Football” contests. Prime Video costs $14.99 a month.

In the first weeks of this season, Bally Sports has had several instances when it couldn’t broadcast Thunder games on its platform, which caused outrage among the fan base.

Bally Sports debuted in March 2021 on what had been the Fox Sports channels.
