In a press release today, Verizon announced that they’ve officially acquired the rights to stream basketball games through the NBA League Pass subscription service. Verizon will be streaming the games to users via their go90 video streaming app — you know, the one that Verizon decided would no longer count against post-paid customers’ data buckets.
Verizon will be offering up 5 games of the 2015-2016 season for free, along with 3 preview weekends during the second half of the NBA 2015-2016 season. The best part is that any of the games watched during Verizon’s free preview weekends wont count against your 5 preview games but after that, dedicated sports fans will need to pay up $50 for the NBA League Pass Half-Season Package if they’d like to continue streaming games on-the-go.
Here are the dates for the 2015-2016 preview weekends:
- 2/06/16 – 2/07/16 (over)
- 2/20/16 – 2/21/16
- 3/05/16 – 3/06/16
*Dates subject to change
Today also marks the beginning of Verizon’s Net Neutrality concerning free go90 streaming for their post-paid customers, something the wireless carrier only offers for their own video streaming app and no others. If you’d like to get in on the NBA streaming, hit up the link down below for more.
