Buddy, Can You Spare A Quarter? NBA Adding More Options To League Pass

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

September 27, 2018: In an effort to expand the consumer base of its NBA League Pass, the NBA said it is unveiling the first in a series of what it calls “innovative, fan-focused initiatives that will provide more ways to watch live NBA game coverage than ever before.”

Via a new season-long NBA League Pass offering, people will be able to purchase and watch live NBA games in-progress at a reduced price. 
 
In October, to coincide with the start of the season, people will be able to purchase a single game on NBA League Pass from the end of the third quarter to the conclusion of the game for $1.99.

Starting in early December, people will have the additional option to buy a single game at reduced prices at the beginning of each quarter.

“The new micro-transaction offerings on League Pass will deliver more customized experiences to meet the needs of NBA fans,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said via the league. “Instead of waiting to watch highlights after a game, fans will be able to enjoy a portion of a game in real-time.”

The base price for an entire single game will remain at $6.99, with pricing for the additional options to be revealed leading up to marketplace availability.

NBA League Pass, offering all out-of-market games, is available through NBA.com, the NBA App and Turner Sports’ B/R Live.

The NBA is planing a week-long NBA League Pass preview beginning Oct. 16 at the start of the 2018-19 NBA season.

According to David Levy, president for Turner, “Our partnership with the NBA continues to center on the development of innovative, fan-first products that deliver premium content through an array of touch points and drive consumption across all platforms.

“These game-changing initiatives will provide fans with immediate access to live NBA action in more ways than ever before.  From live games on TNT and NBA TV to these compelling options for NBA League Pass subscribers, fans will be able to customize the experience to best align with their viewing preferences.”
