NBA LEAGUE PASS to Offer One-Step Live Game Access Through Social Media Posts for First Time
Friday, October 23, 2015
NBA LEAGUE PASS, which provides live out-of market games to NBA fans, will debut first-of-their-kind features for the 2015-16 NBA season, including one-step access to live games via social media and an NBA SINGLE GAME option.
Fans will have access to the new features during the NBA LEAGUE PASS free trial beginning on opening night of the season, Tuesday, Oct. 27, and continuing through Nov. 3.
One-Step Live Game Access Through Social Media Posts
For the first time, NBA LEAGUE PASS will provide fans with one-step access to live games available on the service via posts from the league’s social media platforms, including Twitter and Facebook. New “watch” links highlighted in posts will launch the newly redesigned NBA App and put fans as little as one click or tap away from watching live games on NBA LEAGUE PASS.
First-Ever Full SINGLE GAME and New TEAM PASS Options
The NBA will become the first major U.S. professional sports league to offer an NBA SINGLE GAME option for fans throughout the regular season. The NBA SINGLE GAME offering, available for purchase three days prior to the game, will allow fans to watch individual NBA LEAGUE PASS live games during the regular season ($6.99 per game). Additionally, a new NBA TEAM PASS package ($119.99), available for all 30 NBA teams, will give fans the option to follow one team through the regular season.
These new offerings will be available to subscribers on the web, iOS and Android phones and tablets, and connected devices.
Along with the new packages, NBA LEAGUE PASS will continue to offer its traditional, comprehensive full season package ($199.99), providing access to nearly 1,000 live out-of-market games and a rich archive of NBA content.
Fans will be able to enjoy the subscription-based service across television, web, tablets and mobile phones (iPhone and iPad; Android phones, tablets and TV), as well as a wide variety of connected devices including the PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3 and PlayStation® Vita; Xbox One and Xbox 360; Apple TV; Samsung Smart TV; Amazon Fire Tablet, Amazon Fire TV and Amazon Fire TV Stick; Roku and select Sony Blu-ray players.
NBA LEAGUE PASS is part of NBA Digital, the NBA's extensive cross-platform portfolio of digital assets jointly managed by the NBA and Turner Sports, which includes NBA TV, the NBA app, NBA.com, NBADLEAGUE.com and WNBA.com.
