The following press release is from NBA Digital:
NBA League Pass, the ultimate nightly live game destination for NBA fans, will offer a variety of new subscription packages for the 2017-18 NBA season. This year’s expanded options will include a new premium package with continuous in-arena coverage during all breaks to bring fans footage from team huddles, live entertainment and other experiences from the venue. Additional options include the signature full-season NBA League Pass plan, Team Pass offering, Single-Game selection and virtual reality experience, as well as new monthly pricing options.
NBA Digital and NextVR, the Official League Pass VR Partner of the NBA, will offer fans a new season-long virtual reality subscription package – in addition to Single-Game options – with access across Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream and Windows Mixed Reality. NBA League Pass Premium and traditional package subscribers, along with Single-Game purchasers, will have access to VR games (available internationally beginning Week 2 of the season).
Fans will be able to access the subscription-based service across 19 platforms including television, broadband, tablets and mobile phones, as well as a wide variety of connected devices including the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3; Xbox One; Apple TV; Samsung Smart TV; Android TV; Amazon Fire TV; and Roku. Audio-first options will include new Amazon Alexa Skill – allowing NBA League Pass subscribers to receive live game audio, updates, news and information – and the Apple CarPlay feature.
NBA League Pass, developed in partnership between the NBA and Turner Sports, will introduce new content offerings for this season including coverage of in-arena pre-game warmups and Spanish-language video for select games. Spanish-language audio for select games will also return.
Additionally, iStreamPlanet, an industry leader in live video streaming, has further bolstered NBA League Pass’ video quality for the upcoming season including accelerated delivery time for live game video feeds within the product.
NBA League Pass will once again offer NBA Mobile View. Introduced last season, NBA Mobile View meets the needs of today’s sports fans and their desire to consume content on the best screen available by providing a zoomed-in, tighter shot of the action that is optimized for the smaller screen size of mobile devices.
Pricing options for NBA League Pass, include Premium package with continuous in-arena coverage during break ($249.99); traditional NBA League Pass, providing access to live out-of-market games and an expansive archive of classic game content ($199.99); NBA Team Pass ($119.99); Single Game ($6.99) and Virtual Reality ($49.99) packages. New monthly-based subscriptions are also now available, including Premium ($39.99 per month), NBA League Pass ($28.99 per month) and NBA Team Pass ($17.99 per month).
