ATLANTA – FOX Sports Southeast, exclusive regional broadcaster of the Atlanta Hawks, will televise 80 regular season games during the 2019-20 NBA season.
All games televised on the network will also be available on the FOX Sports GO app, and all telecasts will be anchored by the network’s flagship pre- and postgame show, Hawks LIVE, delivering expert insight and analysis before and after each game.
To begin the regular season, FOX Sports Southeast will televise the Hawks’ season opener on Thursday, Oct. 24, at the Detroit Pistons. The network will then present a special one-hour edition of Hawks LIVE prior to the team’s home opener on Saturday, Oct. 26, against the Orlando Magic.

Prior to the season opener, the network will also deliver special coverage of three Hawks preseason contests, beginning with a match-up versus the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, Oct. 7, at 7:30 pm ET.
