NBA League Pass in Australia

The NBA is back in action and ready to go with the 2020-21 season, and for Australia fans of the legendary court sport, there’s an easy way to catch up with your favourite players, teams and the excitement that surrounds the game. If you want to watch NBA, the official NBA League Pass is a ticket to everything NBA for not just the current season’s games, but to the storied history of the game as well.

What is the NBA League Pass?

The NBA League Pass provides access to everything from NBA live streams of current games to an extensive archive of every game played since 2012, and every NBA finals game played in the past 20 years – an absolute must-have for basketball fans, since it goes far beyond just streaming each week’s games. There’s live stats and graphics, the option to stream from different broadcasters, a 24/7 live NBA TV channel with expert analysis and news, and even condensed replays that you can download to your device to catch up with games on the go.

NBA League Pass Australia price 

Once you’re all set up with the app on your device of choice, it’s time to pick your NBA streaming plan – there’s three different options available enabling you to watch NBA games in Australia.  

The top tier plan is the NBA League Pass, which gives you everything – access to all the games (live as well as on-demand dating back to 2012), the huge library of classic games from the past 20 years, video and radio options (the latter being great for keeping track of a game when you can’t watch a screen), full-length and special condensed game replays and more. After the trial it’ll cost $39.99 per month, and is an absolute must-have for serious basketball fans.

If you’re only wanting to follow your favourite NBA team, though, you can opt for the Team Pass at $19.99/month, which gives you all the live games and replays from your chosen team, or the 8-Game Choice plan which lets you watch eight games each month for $14.99/month. Neither of the cheaper options include access to the massive archive of past games, though, so keep that in mind – but if your goal is to have live streaming access to your favourite team, these are options worth considering.

Easily the best value choice, though, is to go for the annual League Pass. At $239.99 for the year, it works out to $20 a month (half the price of paying monthly) and gives you full unlimited access to everything. Team Pass and 8-Game Choice are also available on annual subscriptions, but the discount isn’t anywhere near as enticing. The discounted annual plan for League Pass is for new subscribers only, so be sure to take advantage of the offer while it’s around if you want to have all of the NBA in your streaming life for the whole year!

NBA League Pass free trial

If you’re after a free trial for the NBA League Pass you might be disappointed. There currently isn’t any free trial offers available however there are a number of deals available. One option is a 10 minute pass which enables you to watch the NBA for 10 minutes of access for AUD $0.99.

If you’re after a savings over the entire season then you can also get an annual pass for $239.99 which works out at half the price of the monthly subscription, or $20AUD per month.

Frequently asked questions about NBA League Pass

  • What streaming devices do I need to watch NBA?

While the list of devices supported by NBA League Pass covers the most popular choices, not everyone’s going to be set up with one. Many people rely on their smart TV’s apps when it comes to streaming services, but getting a dedicated streaming device opens up a wider range of streaming services, and often better performance and picture quality. Owners of recent Sony TVs, as we mentioned, are already well catered for with access to the Google Play store for a massive range of streaming apps including NBA League Pass. But if you’re new to streaming and want the best bang for your buck, we’d recommend either Amazon’s latest Fire TV Stick for those with HD TVs (it’s around $50) or Google’s latest Chromecast with Google TV for 4K TVs (a bit pricier at $99). For those who don’t mind spending big for extra features and quality, the Apple TV 4K (about $249) is the luxury option that’s worth considering.

  • Where can I download the NBA League Pass app?

Once you’re set up on your chosen streaming device, all you need to do is head for the app store to grab the NBA app and get started. The exact name of the app varies depending on the device, but if you load up the app store and do a search for “NBA” you’ll find it in no time (the Apple TV app, for example, is called “NBA – Live basketball games” while on Android TV devices it’s “NBA: Live Games & Scores”).
