Coming November 6 Android fans and NBA fans can go from checking out stats and scores to actually WATCHING NBA action!
The new NBA League Pass Mobile will allow NBA fans to go beyond stats and highlights to actually watching the game over Wi-Fi or 3G connection. Games are available for 48 hours after being played, there are DVR-like controls, push alerts and the ability to block everything out and simply enjoy the game. This great service comes with a price however. That Price? 39.99.
Also worth noting that the application will use the phones GPS ability to blackout home team content which might be a deal breaker for some – also, as with many video applications don’t expect flawless video over your 3G network – Wi-Fi will be preffered. However, for big time NBA fans it doesn’t get much better then having nearly every NBA game at your fingertips nearly anywhere you go.
For those of you with somewhat shallower pockets there are options NBA Digital is also offering the NBA Game Time app in a paid version – 9.99 – and a free “Lite” version. The paid version offers live audio feeds for every game — including those in your local market — as well as stats, video highlights and push alerts. The free app has scores, standings and schedules.
