It's always interesting to note how much a broadcast changes when a network can focus all of it's resources on one Series. With ESPN on the Eastern Conference Finals, TNT will be going all-in for San Antonio-L.A. Not only will all games be online, but you'll even be able to vote for which player you want the "Fans Choice" cameras to focus on each quarter.
In addition, Yellowbook will sponsor TNT OverTime All-Access on NBA.com, the new online video player that will provide four live streams, including the Fans Choice Cameras, from inside the arena throughout each game of the series to complement the network’s television coverage.I'm pretty sure Kobe and Tim Duncan are going to get a lot of votes, but I would love to see America to throw a wrench in TNT's gears. Let's start a movement to vote on someone like Matt Bonner, Ira Newble, or Coby Karl for a quarter. Seems like a fun idea though and added to their online coverage this shows why TNT is the class of the NBA Broadcast World.
TNT OverTime All-Access tips off its live coverage with Game #1 of the Western Conference Finals on Wed., May 21. The live feeds feature Fans Choice Cameras which provides an interactive viewing experience by allowing fans to vote online for which player from each team they want to watch for the entire quarter. The two Fans Choice Cameras will follow the players whether they are on the court, in the huddle or on the bench.
