    Portland, Ore. – The Trail Blazers will stream all 16 KGW broadcasts live online, in high-definition, throughout the 2010-11 season, starting with the season opener tomorrow night against the Phoenix Suns at 7 p.m.
     
    The Trail Blazers, who are the only NBA team that plan to stream games this year, streamed 15 KGW broadcasts last season, charging a small fee.
     
    "We are extremely excited to facilitate the expansion of our viewing audience via a free stream this season,” Trail Blazers Chief Operating Officer Sarah Mensah said. “We take pride in staying on the cutting edge of new technology and in connecting with our fans in new ways.”
     
    The 16 KGW games throughout the season include three matchups with Phoenix, three against the defending champion L.A. Lakers and two against in-division rivals Utah and Oklahoma City.
     
    Fans can sign up by visiting trailblazers.com. An FAQ is available on the website that details the technical specifications required to receive the broadcast stream.
     
    The stream will feature television commentators Mike Barrett and Mike Rice, as well as studio analysts Terry Porter and Michael Holton, and studio host Adam Bjaranson.
     
    Pre-game (30 minutes prior to tip-off) and post-game shows (30 minutes following the game) will be included in the stream.
     
    Streamed games will be available exclusively to fans in the team’s broadcast territory in Oregon and Southwest Washington (within a 150-mile radius from Portland). Fans outside of the Trail Blazers’ 150-mile broadcast territory can also see games online as part of the NBA League Pass Broadband package. Details are available at NBA.com.
