Sling TV, the leading live multichannel TV streaming service, today launched NBA League Pass, the NBA’s out-of-market live game subscription service jointly managed by NBA and Turner Sports; and in coming weeks will launch Team Pass, giving fans access to live regular season games for a single team.
Sling TV is the first streaming service to integrate NBA League Pass. NBA League Pass is now available on Sling TV for $29 per month with a subscription to Sling Orange, Sling Blue, Spanish-language and/or select Sling International services. Team Pass will be available for $18 per month with a subscription to Sling Orange, Sling Blue, Spanish-language and/or select Sling International services.
“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.”
NBA League Pass offers fans nearly 1,000 live out-of-market regular-season NBA games in addition to those separately available on TNT, ABC, ESPN, NBA TV, local regional sports networks and local broadcast networks. NBA League Pass is available on Sling TV on a monthly subscription basis. Customers who subscribe to NBA League Pass will also receive linear access to NBA TV.
In the coming weeks, Sling TV will launch Team Pass by monthly subscription. Available for all 30 NBA teams, Team Pass gives fans the option to select one team and follow their team’s live regular-season games included in NBA League Pass.
Sling TV plans to add on-demand content for NBA League Pass in the future, including replay games.
In addition to NBA League Pass, Sling TV offers NBA games on NBA TV, TNT, ABC, ESPN3, ESPN, Regional Fox Sports Networks and Regional NBC Sports Networks.
