Here’s what comes with the premium package, in addition to all of the features of the base package:
- No commercials
- Streaming on two devices at once
Subscribers can also see replays and consolidated highlight videos from each game. The tablet version of the NBA League Pass app typically also has live stats and lineup information as well for an immersive experience.
Games that aren’t shown on NBA League Pass
National broadcasts are not shown on NBA League Pass, which means the first night League Pass will be active is October 19th, since the 18th features two games on TNT. Additionally, users are unable to watch live games that are broadcasted locally at their location.
For instance, a League Pass subscriber located in New York City can see any game other than the New York Knicks or Brooklyn Nets via League Pass. This makes LP a great option for an out-of-town fan or for a fan who wants to see games in addition to what they see on local regional sports networks.
