LONDON (AP) -- The NBA is returning to British television.

BT Sport secured exclusive U.K. broadcast rights to NBA games in a multi-year deal announced Thursday. Terms were not disclosed.

Coverage starts Sunday with the game between the Indiana Pacers and Los Angeles Clippers.

The agreement covers up to 200 games throughout the season, including seven live games per week.

NBA games were broadcast last season in Britain by Sky Sports and ESPN.

BT launched three channels in August after securing a share of English Premier League football rights. It recently outbid Sky for Champions League rights starting in 2015.

Sky holds the main rights to NFL games in Britain.
