The latest NBA expansion covers two growth areas for the league: international and broadband. NBA League Pass Broadband International is now available in 19 countries. The subscription includes access to 40-plus live games a week with play-by-play in English and VOD for 24 hours after they air. Some live games will be blacked out. Pay options include full season ($85 through Nov. 11; $100 after), monthly and daily. The international version follows a new U.S. option with NBA League Pass Broadband; before this season, broadband packages were available only as an extension part of the cable or satellite out-of-market package. Speaking of promos, EA NBA Live is sponsoring a free preview of the U.S. broadband service through Nov. 11.
The international package is available in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Philippines, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
