Default Where to watch NBA Finals in Dubai ?

Hey Guys,

I was wondering if anyone knows what channel will be showing the NBA Finals here in Dubai. I believe I have the orbit satellite ? or set of channels. So we have the NBA TV channel, however like everything else here that doesn't make any sense.

NBA TV shows games from 30 years ago when its actually time for playoffs and finals, it was very disappointing last year, and will be more so this year that the Lakers will actually be expected to win. I hope someone knows a way I can watch these games, because I am a huge lakers fan.

GO LAKERS !!!!!!!!!!

I woke up 5 in the morning to see if the finals game would air, it was sooo frustrating...........my friend told me that 'ART prime' airs the playoffs, but im not sure about it.

LyngSat - Lyngemark Satellite has the satellite frequencies of all available channels with the corresponding satellites. I'd check the Nilesat listing and the all Hotbird satellite listings if you wanted to look for Sports +3
