For those of you who love basketball, this is your ticket.
NBA League Pass is now Sling TV. The first live multichannel TV streaming service announced its intention to integrate NBA League Pass into its programming, and plans to launch Team Pass in the coming weeks.
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. NBA League Pass is available today for $29 per month with a subscription to Sling Orange, Sling Blue, Spanish-language and/or select Sling International services. Customers who subscribe to NBA League Pass will also receive access to NBA TV.
“By introducing NBA League Pass, along with its Team Pass offering as optional add-ons, we continue to give our customers control over their Sling TV experience,” said Ankit Bishnoi, vice president of Content Acquisition and Strategy at Sling TV. “Our customers appreciate choice in their entertainment, and we continue to deliver on that promise by offering popular content in new ways, at an affordable price.”
Additionally, customers interested in one team will be able to subscribe to Team Pass in the coming weeks. Team Pass offers live regular season games, full game replays and audio broadcasts for one out-of-market team, and will be available for $18 per month with a subscription to Sling Orange, Sling Blue, Spanish-language and/or select Sling International services.
