Smith Entertainment Group (SEG) – parent company of the Utah Jazz – today announced the launch of SEG Media, a new production company, which will grant unprecedented access to the Jazz organization via various platforms including giving Utah Jazz fans ubiquitous access to watch games and access other unique team content through a combination of over-the-air broadcast television and a paid, subscription-based streaming service, starting in the 2023-24 NBA season.
How can fans watch Jazz games during the 2023-24 NBA season?
Fans who live within the Jazz's local broadcast market will have three options:
What is the Jazz's local broadcast market?
Utah plus most areas of Idaho and Wyoming that are within 150 miles of Salt Lake City.
Will fans have to pay to watch Jazz games with this new broadcast deal?
No. You can watch Jazz games by simply connecting a basic antenna to your TV and navigating to channel 14. A basic TV antenna allows viewers to pick up the over-the-air broadcast of Jazz games while in the local area.
What cable provider or streaming service subscriptions do fans need to watch Jazz games on TV?
As long as fans have a TV with a basic antenna connection, they can watch Jazz games on TV via channel 14 without having to subscribe to any other service. Games can also be accessed on other local cable and satellite providers carrying KJZZ.
What TV channel will be showing Jazz games during the regular season?
All non-nationally televised Jazz games will air on the over-the-air, local TV station channel 14 (KJZZ), which will become “The Home of the Utah Jazz.” Some Jazz games and other team content may be shown on KJZZ’s sister station in the market - channel 2 (KUTV), which can also be accessed for free using a basic TV antenna.
How many Jazz games will be shown for free on local TV?
All non-nationally televised games will be shown on channel 14 during the 2023-24 NBA season. Both channel 14 (KJZZ) and channel 2 (KUTV) have the rights to air all available Jazz games. Fans should also expect significant coverage of the team from Sinclair’s CBS affiliate in the market, KUTV (channel 2).
Will any regular season Utah Jazz games be blacked out on the over-the-air station or streaming platform?
See answer below.
How do I watch the Utah Jazz games that don't appear on channel 14?
To watch nationally televised games that are not simulcast on channel 14, simply find the ESPN or TNT channels through the TV guide. Both require a cable subscription.

If you live out of market or are traveling out of state during a game, you can continue to follow every minute of Jazz action by subscribing to NBA League Pass.
