  • Speaking of basketball, content provider inCapta has agreed to launch ad-supported and subscription-based versions of The Basketball Channel, which plans to offer “live and prerecorded games, highlight and lifestyle reels, documentaries and basketball specials.” InCapta’s other content includes one sports-related channel Drone Race TV, plus reports from February’s Pan African Film Festival, musical performances from the Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn, WA, and individual episodes of country music shows Bluegrass Ridge, Reflections, Country Classics and Country Fix. The site also features a TBC Today channel, which appears to consist of six-year-old financial newscasts. InCapta, a publicly traded company, changed its name from TBC Global News Network a year ago.
