Sling TV today has added the NBA League Pass, the NBA’s pay package of out-of-market games.
The live streaming service is now offering the League Pass for $29 a month with a subscription to Sling’s Blue, Orange, Spanish-Language or International packages.
(Sling’s Orange plan starts at $20-a-month and includes ESPN and roughly 30 cable networks. The Blue package costs $25-a-month, and includes more than 40 channels including live network feeds in select markets as well as several Fox channels. The ‘Extra’ plans require a subscription to either Blue or Orange.)
Customers who subscribe to NBA League Pass will also receive free access to the NBA TV channel.
Sling said today that it will also add the NBA Team Pass in the coming weeks. The Team Pass offers live regular season games, full game replays and audio broadcasts for one out-of-market team.
The streamer will offer the Team Pass plan for $18 a month.
Sling TV is the first multi-channel, live streaming service to offer the NBA League Pass. YouTube TV has announced that it plans to add the League Pass, but has yet to do so.
