League Pass is the NBA's very own streaming service. Similar to that of other American sports that boast their own streaming services like NHL.TV, NFL Game Pass and MLB.TV, NBA League Pass shows every game live.

In addition to streaming every second of every game of the season live, you also get access to extras like the NBA draft, Summer League, pre-season games and All-Star Weekend. League Pass serves as a single destination for all the latest news, statistics, highlights and recaps from the current NBA season.

How much is NBA League Pass?

League Pass allows you to follow your favourite teams, players, match-ups, the entire NBA season or a good chunk of it. As of December 2020, League Pass is once again offering three packages with annual or monthly options after it only offered one package for 2020's season restart.

Both Team Pass and multi-game options have returned alongside the premium option now known simply as League Pass.

Normally a League Pass annual subscription price costs $300, but right now there's an introductory price for $239.99 and the monthly price is $39.99.

If you're after a cheaper option the Game Choice pack lets you choose eight games per month. This costs either $109.99 annually or $14.99 per month.

Otherwise, Team Pass gives you access to every game from one specific franchise. You can follow your favourite team for $169.99 per year or $19.99 monthly.

It's important to note that annual billing subscriptions will be automatically renewed. So if you aren't keen on paying another few hundred dollars then set a calendar reminder.

How many devices can I watch NBA League Pass on?

League Pass now allows you to run two simultaneous streams on separate devices.

NBA League Pass features

Although not a special feature, where League Pass separates itself from the competition is with its content. It's the only way to see every single game of the regular season and playoffs live or on demand. You'll also get access to NBA TV which streams a mixture of basketball shows, live games, WNBA content, historic matches and documentaries 24/7.

Most basketball fans are likely to have only heard games called by commentators during the ESPN broadcasted games. League Pass gives you the ability to select from either home or away commentary. It's a surprisingly handy feature as you'll find some teams' commentators are more biased than others.

Similar to Kayo's SplitView, League Pass has its own multi-game viewing which allows you to stream up to four games at once. However, this feature is currently exclusive to desktop. Another handy feature is the condensed viewing option which reduces games down to around 15 minutes.

League Pass also has live stats available to turn on or off during games. You can see the full boxscore of both teams which is helpful if you're watching on your phone and don't have another device on hand.

Unlike your regular streaming services like Netflix, sports streamers typically don't have offline viewing available, although League Pass does. You've got the option to download the full broadcast of games from either commentary team or condensed versions of games. Given that NBA games are typically on in the middle of the day in Australia it makes catching up on action a whole lot easier.
