Sling TV launches NBA League Pass
If you’re a fan of the NBA, the decision on which VOD service to go with when replacing cable has just become a little bit easier. Sling TV has announced the launch of NBA League Pass, making them the first live multichannel TV streaming service to do so. The company also plans to launch Team Pass in the coming weeks.
NBA League Pass is available with Sling Orange, Sling Blue, Spanish-language and/or select Sling International subscriptions, and will cost $29 per month above the price of your base Sling package. So, what do you get for that price?
NBA League Pass provides access to live, out-of-market games right in the Sling TV app, so there’s no need to change inputs or switch between apps. Games included on NBA League Pass are in addition to those available on NBA TV, TNT, ABC, ESPN3, regional sports networks and local broadcast networks. Customers who subscribe to NBA League Pass will also receive access to NBA TV.
Okay, but what if you just want to watch your team? That’s what Team Pass is for. Available in the coming weeks, Team Pass will offer live regular season games, full game replays and audio broadcasts for one out-of-market team. It comes in at only $18 per month plus your subscription to Sling Orange, Sling Blue, Spanish-language and/or select Sling International services.
Okay, but if you want don’t even want to watch your team, you just want to watch an occasional game? Well, I’d probably recommend you just pick another sport that actually interests you. Barring that, just sit tight as Sling TV plans to add on-demand content for NBA League Pass in the future, including replay games.
