Good news for basketball fans who can’t get enough coverage of their favorite teams: You’ll soon be able to watch original NBA programming on Twitter.

In an unprecedented move, Twitter will host two new shows produced by the basketball association starting in the 2016-2016 season, the Wall Street Journal reported. The first will be a weekly pregame show, while the content of the second show has yet to be determined.

However, the deal won’t give Twitter the digital rights to stream actual NBA games. Sports fans can get their Twitter fix in other ways though. In April, Twitter won the rights to stream 10 Thursday night NFL games in the upcoming season. And earlier this month, Twitter also tested its live-streaming feature by showing coverage of the Wimbledon tennis tournament.

Twitter is also experimenting with the live-stream feature at this week’s Republican National Convention. You can watch the entire conference live here.
