'NBA League Pass' Adds National Game Archive Offering

NBA League Pass will add direct access to replays of nationally-televised NBA games to its offering of live out-of-market game telecasts during the 2013-14 season.

The package, celebrating its 20th season, will offer direct access to a national game archive featuring all televised games on ABC, ESPN, TNT and NBA TV throughout the regular season as part of its NBA League Pass Broadband offering, said network officials. Also new to the package are live feeds of both home and away team broadcasts for all games.

The package will also continue to offer a NBA League Pass Mobile service for iPads and mobile phones, and NBA League Pass Choice, which allows fans to choose up to five teams to watch during the regular season, said officials.
