Starting at the 2018 Summer League, the NBA started working with ESPN, TNT, NBATV and local RSN partners in order to optimize camera positions throughout the local bowl. The free throw line extended camera was tested at the 2019 Summer League. During the 2020 Regular Season, select games on NBATV featured these cameras. After the resumption of play in Orlando during July 2020, the camera were heavily featured from the Bubble on both ESPN/TNT hopefully becoming mainstays on big shows well in to the future bringing fans closer to the action and providing a unique perspective – similar to shots people are familiar with from both Soccer and Football.
