For a long time, Aussies had to resort to pay TV to get their NBA fix, with ESPN broadcasting a limited number of games every season. Thanks to NBA League Pass, that’s no longer the case.

The streaming platform allows you to follow your favourite teams, players and match-ups, as well as get access to the latest news and statistics. Plus, you can stream every NBA game live.

How to get your NBA League Pass free trial

When signing up to League Pass, you'll need to:

  1. Head over to the NBA League Pass official website.
  2. You'll then see a big red button that says "START FREE TRIAL". When you click on it you'll be shown the plans currently on offer with a simple breakdown of what each package contains.
  3. Once you've decided on the subscription you're after there's yet another big red "START FREE TRIAL" to click on.
  4. From there you'll be required to create an NBA account. You'll need to enter some standard information such as an email address, password and date of birth. Then agree to the privacy policy and T&Cs.
  5. Sticking on the big red button theme click "CONTINUE" towards the bottom of the page. On the next screen is where you'll be required to enter your payment details. Yes, even though you may only be after the free trial you still are required to provide payment details.

As of July 2020 League Pass is only offering its two premium subscriptions, but both come with a 7-day free trial. They cost either $39.99/month or $68.99/year, but if you don't wish to be billed you'll need to cancel your trial before the end of the 7-day period.

Both subscriptions provide the same content and features. However, please note that while the annual plan suggests it's in fact a whole year's subscription there is a disclaimer explaining that price is just for the rest of the 2019–20 NBA season. The subscription is set to automatically renew after the season for the normal cost of around $299.99/year.

What does League Pass get me access to?

NBA League Pass is compatible with a variety of devices, including smartphones and tablets, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast and Xbox One.

You'll have access to every game of the regular season, playoffs and NBA Finals live or on demand. In addition to this League Pass gets you access to the NBA Draft, some WNBA content and the entirety of All-Star Weekend. There's also several special features available which you can read more about in our NBA League Pass guide.
