Amazon has launched NBA League Pass on its Prime Video service in the US, making it the first subscriber-based live sports channel on the platform.
The cost for NBA League Pass on Prime Video is $28.99 per month (much less than buying individual games) but starting Friday, Dec. 14 Prime customers can access the full League Pass at no charge through Dec. 20, 2018.
A full year (season) of NBA League Pass if paid in full costs $169. The service provides access to hundreds of out-of-market NBA games, however, TV restrictions and black outs can apply to certain games.
The NBA League Pass app is available on Fire TV devices or can be watched on PCs on Amazon.com. To watch the app viewers will need to log-in or create a new account with NBA.com.
