You no longer have to purchase an expensive season-long subscription package if you want to watch your favorite basketball team’s games from another city. Starting next season NBA is going to offer fans who want to watch out-of-market games pay-per-view single-game telecasts for a set price which will give them streaming rights on tablets, smartphones and PCs while also allowing them to tune in from any cable or satellite provider that offers NBA’s League Pass.
Almost all major cable and satellite providers in the country already offer NBA’s League Pass such as Comcast, DirecTV, Time Warner Cable, Dish, Verizon and AT&T.
There is just one caveat though, games televised nationally can’t be purchased separately since they can be viewed by everybody on ESPN or any network that they might be on.
NBA is unlikely to change the price of the full League Pass, keeping it at $199.99, while this year the league is offering a team package for fans who live out of the primary market but want to view all of the team’s games for $119.99.
It should be kept in mind that the $6.99 price announced for pay-per-view single-game telecasts is for the United States only, NBA says that the League Pass is available in over 200 countries so prices for other markets may differ.
