NBA LEAGUE PASS Off to Best Start in History


NBA Digital today announced NBA LEAGUE PASS, the league’s package of live out-of-market games, is off to its best start ever, with a record number of digital subscriptions to date.

So far this season, the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors have secured the top spots for NBA SINGLE GAME and NBA TEAM PASS, and claimed seven of the Top 10 most-viewed games.  

NBA LEAGUE PASS introduced NBA SINGLE GAME and NBA TEAM PASS this season, making the NBA the first major U.S. professional sports league to offer the single-game option for fans throughout the regular season.

For NBA SINGLE GAME, the Warriors are followed by the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors to round out the top five in the category, while the Cavaliers, Lakers, Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs are among the top five for TEAM PASS.  Additionally, the Cavaliers, Charlotte Hornets and Utah Jazz have each appeared in two of the Top 10 most-viewed games on NBA LEAGUE PASS.
