  • Frustrating

    By uryviel
    You’re lucky if you even get to watch the games you paid for... I paid the fee to watch every Knicks game and I can’t log in, am not receiving emails to retrieve or change my password and had to pay a separate fee for an individual game so I wouldn’t miss it...
  • Why wouldn’t NBATV be available on this app

    This app should be called NBA League Pass app. If you have satellite or cable service and would like to watch the game that is currently being shown on NBATV, look elsewhere. No stars.
  • Garbage

    By Bob McFackenslap
    This app is total garbage. My internet speeds are incredibly fast (55Mbps) yet the app is constantly freezing and pausing to “buffer”. Game finally comes back and is in horrible quality the remainder of the game. The only explanation I have is sometime after I started watching the game, my wife switched the input and is on demo mode for NBA jam on a Super Nintendo. Ping: 25ms Download: 67.4 Mbps Upload: 5.99 Mbps
  • Doesn't work

    By Lewiss32
    Rarely let's me watch games when it does the game can crash anytime you touch the screen. Poorly designed app and waste of money. Also the Apple TV does not work all together. DO NOT PURCHASE LEAGUE PASS
  • Not very good

    By aFive720
    Update to dev: I can contact support if you’d like, this issue is present on all devices I’ve tested. Video of an ad before the video loads instantly and in high quality. Video itself? Not watchable for 30s-2mins. On WiFi it does get to hd quick, on lte not. As per your request, ran a Speedtest on lte 21ms ping 39mbps download 6mbps upload. This also happens in areas with 80mbps lte. Not very user friendly. Players section is hidden, let’s talk about the highlights... even on 400mbps Wifi the video is so pixelated that you can’t make anything out for the first 30 seconds till it changes to hd. Lte? Even worse! Video is mostly unwatchable until the highlight is almost over. Why can’t we select HD as default quality!?
  • Frustrating 90% of the time.

    By Schultzw
    There’s few things in life that are as frustrating as watching a game with 2 minutes left only to have it stop and buffer and then end up freezing and having to exit the app and going back in to find you’ve missed the end of the game👎🏻 Whether you have good or bad internet, the stream will stop and load through out the whole game. SUPER FRUSTRATING.

  • Much better than the start of the season

    By Ljsmith921
    3rd update: still having issues watching replay games with my subscribed team. Also, I sent an email to customer service and was never replied to so I don’t have a ticket number. I just have been checking the app for updates all the time hoping for developer improvement since then. 2nd update: Things seem to be working relatively well, much better than when I couldn’t watch any of the games I was paying for. Update: am currently a one team subscriber and I haven’t been able to watch any of my selected teams preseason games, wether live or replay. What am I paying for? I also sent an email to customer service over a week ago about this and haven’t even received a courtesy response. This application is completely and wholly unreliable. I have paid $199.00 for a full (30 team) league pass subscription for the last 2 seasons so that I could watch as much basketball as I want while traveling for work (which is always). I was very pleased with the performance of the older version of this application (2015-2016 season). Unfortunately, this season has been a bit different. It's too late (or early) for me to even begin to list all of the ways this application fails to meet the requirements of standard for someone who paid $199.00 to use it in its full feature mode. I happen to be in software and am quite familiar with the difficulties of making all of desktop functionality transferable to a mobile platform. That being said, this application has completely digressed from its original quality. So that supposed difficulty is not applicable here.
  • Worthless

    By Barcle101
    Won’t be renewing. Waste of money. Am too far to watch live broadcast but too close that the game I always want is blocked from me watching on League Pass. Only good for following teams outside your market. Trash.
  • they tried.

    By Austinia
    the video quality. is terrible. it looks like that video game minecraft trying to watch anything. oh and that’s after the 30 second ad that you can’t skip.
