NBA League Pass pricing levels for the 2017-18 season have been released and are now available to view at NBA.com. A full season viewing all 30 NBA franchises will set you back $199.99, consistent with past pricing, but the league is offering another option this year. If you’re tired of speculating how the Andersons got tickets to the game, you can view in the in-arena feed, free of commercials, for $249.99, a surcharge of $50. Single-team feeds for the season run $119.99.

Blackouts apply for all subscriptions. The League Pass Blackout FAQ page describe the rationale and effect of blackouts. It includes a zip code finder so potential customers can see which franchises are subject to blackout from their viewing area. The bottom line on blackouts:

Live, locally televised games are not available for viewing live on NBA LEAGUE PASS. Blackout restrictions include your local NBA team(s) and all nationally telecast games.

If you live in the Portland area you’ll not be able to use NBA League Pass to see the Trail Blazers. Nor will you be able to view games on ESPN, TNT, or ABC using the service.
