NBA League Pass
||This article needs additional citations for verification. (November 2011)|
League Pass comes in three varieties in the United States: NBA League Pass TV, which plays the games through a cable or satellite TV provider; NBA League Pass Broadband, which uses highspeed Internet connection to stream videos to a computer; and NBA League Pass Mobile, which is for mobile devices.
Customers outside of the United States can sign up for NBA International League Pass.
Videos of the games come from local stations and regional sports networks.
Blackout restrictions 
If a local team is playing and the game is televised in the home market, the associated feed on League Pass is blacked out and unavailable for viewing.
Per the NBA.com website: “Games will also be blacked out when they are appearing on national television. This applies to games being televised on ABC, ESPN, Fox Sports, TNT and NBA TV. You may view these games simply by switching to the designated channel.”
NBA League Pass TV availability 
NBA League Pass TV is available with these cable and satellite providers as well as streaming:
- United States:
- Mexico and Central America:
- South America and Caribbean (except Brazil):
Most providers who offer subscriptions to League Pass TV also include NBA TV and a companion League Pass Broadband subscription. It is also given to select cable subs.
NBA International League Pass 
In 2010 (the 2010-2011 season) NeuLion took over NBA International League Pass Broadband. Many features have been added to the service, including access to individual plays of the game via icons/markers. Game halts like timeouts (Time-out (sport)#Basketball) are filled in with NBA spots/advertisements and not marked by icons, therefore not immediately accessible. The NBA spots/advertisements have been removed for the 2011 Finals, and game halts were filled with real time images from the arenas including performances of dance teams. The advertisements have been restored again in the 2011-2012 season in the form of a silent "NBA.TV Never miss a shot." screen presented during game halts.
'Condensed' games are offered, meant to sum up the highlights of the game, but there are glitches. For example, the condensed version of the 2011 second round playoff game 5 featuring BOS @ MIA 'started' after the fourth quarter. This has led to heavy criticism among fans looking for a spoiler-free recap.
NBA League Pass Broadband 
The NBA offers a similar service for viewing games on a computer screen over the internet, with the same blackout rules. Options include the Premium plan, which allows users to watch all games not subject to blackout, and a reduced-price Choice plan, for which users choose 5 teams whose games they can watch. Customers can watch the games live or in an archive available at any point till the end of the regular season. The package expires beginning of July (e.g. July 5, 2012).
Prices in the 2009-2010 season were $149.95 for the Premium package and $99.95 for the Choice package. In 2010-2011, the prices rose 20% to $179.95 and $109.95 respectively as “early bird” rates for those who signed up before the season started, and $189.95 and $119.95 as the rates once the season began. For at least the past two years, the service has offered a free trial for the first games of the regular season. In the 2010-2011 season, trial customers could watch all non-blackout games from October 26 (the start of the regular season) through November 2. For the 2009-2010 season, a half-year package was offered at a reduced price beginning around the middle of the season. In 2010-2011, the Playoffs and Finals Premium and Standard packages were offered at $99.95 and $79.95 respectively. In 2011-2012, the Playoffs and Finals package was offered at $69.99. In 2012-2013, the Playoffs and Finals were offered free to subscribers for replay, meaning the games were not available for at least three hours after the game completed.
WNBA Season Pass 
From 1999 to 2001, NBA League Pass had a companion service called WNBA Season Pass which showed out-of-market games of the Women's National Basketball Association. The WNBA has discontinued this service; today, all national broadcasts are on ABC, ESPN2, or NBA TV. However, they now offer the WNBA Broadband Season Pass, a web program that allows subscribers to watch every game live for each season.
