Along with the new offerings and features, NBA LEAGUE PASS will continue to offer its traditional, comprehensive full season package providing access to every NBA regular season game, as well as the entire NBA Playoffs, the NBA Finals and the 66th annual NBA All-Star Game.
NBA TEAM CHOICE, available for all 30 teams, will return to give fans the option to follow one team and watch their favorite players all regular season long. In addition, NBA LEAGUE PASS will enable fans to watch individual live games throughout the season.
