With the 2019-20 NBA season about to start, the league for the first time is selling its NBA TV streaming service without a requisite pay-TV contract.
NBA TV, which affords subscribers live access to out-of-market games, costs $6.99 monthly or $59.99 annually, which comes out to $4.99 per month.
The league also offers NBA League Pass priced from $119.99 to $249.99 annually, which afford subs access to commercial free live streaming, archived games, condensed game replays, radio broadcasts, VR access and NBA Finals, among other features.
Launched in 1999 as a 24-hour cable channel, NBA League Pass began offering streaming video access to select games in 2006. It became available on Dish Network’s Sling TV online platform in 2018.
