In Demand will tip off the 2090-10 pro basketball season with a free week-long preview of NBA League Pass.
Beginning Oct. 27, the first day of the NBA season, the out-of-market subscription package will be available to digital- cable customers, free of charge. The package provides customers with up to 40 live out-of-market games per week across 10 channels, plus a slew of enhanced features.
Among the cable operators offering the package distributed by In Demand Networks this season: Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cablevision, Cox Communications and Bright House Networks, plus a number of independent MSOs.Customers who order by Nov. 3 will save $20 with the early bird price of $169, or four installments of $42.25 each.
Dish Network is also offering the free preview.
There are two new enhancements to the package this year: same-day replays afford subscribers access to game encores, one after hour the horn sounds on the original contest, until the next night's lineup begins; and dual feeds telecasts that give watchers for select games the ability to choose the announce-team/local telecast they prefer.
Additionally, there is a full-time multi-screen mosaic affording snapshots of all the live-action games, scores, time clocks and channel locations; a stats channel featuring scores, players performance numbers, previews, recaps and schedule information; and up to a dozen games in the high-definition format per week.
Those who subscribe to NBA League Pass also have access to the online equivalent -- NBA League Pass Broadband on NBA.com, upon subscription verification.
