The NBA will revamp its NBA League Pass service for the 2015-2016 season, allowing subscribers to purchase a single game or games for a single team. Up to now, there has been only one subscription package, costing over $200 per season, that gives you access to all NBA games played outside your local market. This move could really shake things up in terms of sports-programming deals between providers/teams and networks, as well as provide an incentive for basketball fans who have considered cutting the cord but were turned off by the high cost of the full League Pass subscription.
From the NBA
NBA LEAGUE PASS, the out-of-market live game service, will tip off the 2015-16 NBA season by providing fans with the opportunity to purchase single games and individual team packages.
The single game offering will allow fans to select individual NBA LEAGUE PASS live games on a given day during the regular season. The individual team package, available for all 30 NBA teams, will give fans the option to follow one team through the regular season.
Along with the new packages, NBA LEAGUE PASS will continue to offer its traditional, comprehensive full season package, which provides access to nearly 1,000 live out-of-market games and a rich archive of NBA content.
These new offerings will be made available during the 2015-16 season by NBA Digital to broadband and mobile subscribers on iOS and Android devices. Details on where else these new offerings may be purchased, and information regarding 2015-16 pricing for all NBA LEAGUE PASS packages, will be announced in mid-July.
NBA LEAGUE PASS is available through cable, satellite, and telco distributors and includes NBA LEAGUE PASS Broadband.
NBA LEAGUE PASS is a 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, NBA Mobile, NBA.com, NBADLEAGUE.com and WNBA.com.
