After the first games of the tournament, the President of the German Basketball Federation, Ingo Weiss, criticized the public broadcasters ARD and ZDF for not showing the German games live.

“I’m very happy that RTL is broadcasting our quarter-finals live, giving the general public the opportunity to be there,” said Weiss. “At the same time, I would like to thank our media partner MagentaSport for making this broadcast possible. Basketball with the national team on free-to-air television at prime time: that’s what we wanted and now we’re hoping for a great quarterfinals in the EuroBasket Arena in Berlin.”
