If you are out of range to watch your favorite team play and you do not have NBA League Pass, beginning this season you can now purchase single-game telecasts for $6.99—or you can purchase all of one single team’s games for $119.99.
The league will announce Wednesday that, for the first time, fans can pay $6.99 to buy any NBA game next season. Fans will be able to watch the game on television if they have a carrier that gets NBA League Pass — DirecTV, Dish, AT&T, Comcast, Verizon, Time Warner and Cox, among them — or on broadband for computers, tablets and mobile devices.
It is not clear which distributors will participate in offering single games.
In the past, fans could only buy all out-of-market games for the season, but this year, the league is also offering a team package, where a fan who lives out of the primary market can get all the team’s games for $119.99.
The price for the full League Pass — which has been available since 1994 — will remain $199.99, but even NBA commissioner Adam Silver admitted in March at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference that “most people don’t want to consume that many games.”
