Portland Trail Blazers fans will have more options to watch their team this season after Root Sports announced Wednesday that it had reached an agreement with DirecTV and DirecTV Stream to carry game programming for both the Portland Trail Blazers and Seattle Kraken.
The news comes one day after Root Sports announced that it would be on the fuboTV streaming platform starting this week.
In addition to Trail Blazers games, Root Sports also broadcasts games for the Seattle Kraken of the NHL and the Seattle Mariners of MLB and select Portland Timbers matches.
The first Kraken regular-season game on Root will be Thursday’s 5 p.m. matchup against the Nashville Predators. The Blazers’ preseason games have been on Root, and their regular-season debut on the network will come with their season opener next Wednesday, October 20, at 7 p.m. against the Sacramento Kings.
