Three different organizations will cover all 142 games in the five classes of the Maine high school basketball tournament.

All games, except for the state finals, will be available through live web streaming platforms, after Maine Public Broadcasting Network announced it would only broadcast the state finals, after decades of carrying the tournament’s semifinals and regional games.

North and south quarterfinal games will be streamed by the High School Sports Network, a subscription streaming service, for the third straight year. The cost is $9.95 per day or $15 per month for viewers to watch games.

All regional semifinals and finals will be streamed by Northeast Sports Network, Inc. of Lyndonville, Vt., a result of a one-year contract with the Maine Principals Assocation. All 60 games from Bangor, Augusta, and Portland will be provided free to viewers. Under the agreement, NSN will provide Hi-Definition live video streams at nsnsports.com.

MPBN will televise and stream all 10 state championship games.

“This successfully completes our Basketball Tournament coverage package.” — MPA Executive Director Dick Durost in a press release.

Quarterfinals for all classes begin on Friday, February 12, and end on Wednesday, February 17. Semifinals begin on February 17 and run through Friday, February 19. Regional championships will be held on Saturday, February 20. All Class B, C and D games through the regional finals will be held at the Cross Center in Bangor.

The Class B state finals will also be held at the Cross Center, on February 26, while Classes C and D will be held at the Augusta Civic Center and Classes A and AA at the Portland Expo/Cross Center on Saturday, February 27.
