New York – It is half-time for the basketball season and the NBA LEAGUE PASS out-of-market package. To celebrate, basketball lovers have scored a week-long free preview on digital cable from Monday, Jan. 18, through Sunday, Jan. 24. During that free preview, digital cable and telco customers around the country can get a taste of what the NBA subscription package has in store for them, announced package distributor iN DEMAND.
NBA LEAGUE PASS is the ultimate destination for NBA fans to follow their favorite teams, track fantasy players and keep up to date with NBA stats and news. The package provides customers with up to 40 live out-of-market games per week across 10 channels. Basketball fans hungry to see the rest of the regular-season games can order NBA LEAGUE PASS for a reduced price starting Jan 18. The half-season package price, which includes digital and mobile access, is $99, or four installments of only $24.75. With the purchase of NBA LEAGUE PASS on digital cable, subscribers can access NBA LEAGUE PASS BROADBAND and NBA LEAGUE PASS MOBILE on an authenticated basis (more info below).
In addition to the broadband and mobile service, NBA LEAGUE PASS includes a wealth of creative and free enhancements, including game replays, dual feeds, a mosaic channel, a stats channel and HD games as follows:
SAME-DAY REPLAYS: The service re-airs most games in the package starting approximately one hour after the final buzzer so that fans can see NBA action they might have missed. Each game is replayed in its entirety and repeats continuously overnight and the next day, on the same channel, until the following day’s live matchups begin. Games are available in both SD and HD (varies by system).
DUAL FEEDS: For many games, subscribers also receive innovative dual-feed telecasts, which deliver home-team plus visiting-team local market broadcasts so fans can choose the announcers they prefer.
MULTI-SCREEN MOSAIC: Package subscribers receive the popular rotating mosaic of multiple screens that give simultaneous snapshots of all the live-action games being played around the league, along with scores, time clocks and channel locations. The NBA LEAGUE PASS mosaic can be found on the last channel (10th) of the system’s package lineup. (Mosaic may occasionally be pre-empted to accommodate live games.)
STATS CHANNEL: The NBA LEAGUE PASS Stats Central is a live source for scores, statistics, game previews, game recaps and schedule information. This can be found on the ninth channel of the system’s package lineup. (Stats channel may occasionally be pre-empted to accommodate live games.)
NBA LEAGUE PASS DIGITAL ON NBA.COM: This feature allows package subscribers to watch NBA LEAGUE PASS games live online at NBA.com or on authenticated mobile devices. It is included for NBA LEAGUE PASS TV subscribers once their subscription is verified. Complete activation instructions and details are available at: www.nba.com/activate.
