Are you guys aware that Sportsbet shows games? Ive seen most of the 76ers live games this year. You just need to have an account, not sure on minimum deposit if any.
Do they archive games for later viewing? Live games are useless to me as I don't have the time to watch them between 9am and 5pm Australian time. And even if I did I wouldn't because it's incredibly frustrating having to sit through all the time outs and ads they pad the average NBA with. I honestly don't know how Americans, or anyone for any country for that matter, can sit through an entire live NBA game. 1 live quarter is enough to drive me up the wall.

The reductions of timeouts this season has massively improved the viewing experience.

Does it run fast enough through a VPN to get decent quality though? I've got a VPN sub with private internet access which I could use

It's part of the American sport watching culture. They love breaks in games so they can do other things like grab a hot dog, etc, and not miss any of the action. NFL games take forever, breaks of innings in baseball, etc. I recall an episode of the Simpsons where Homer attended a baseball game, sober for the first time, and says he never realised how boring the game really is :)

I recall years ago they played an NRL State of Origin match in the USA. Most of them liked it, no padding astounded them, but the major complaint was they were waiting for a break in play so they could get up and move around.

Have you noticed that the actual time out period has lengthened, or is it my imagination?
They used to have full time outs (90 seconds) and "20 second" timeouts (actually 60 seconds). This has been ditched in favour of a standard 75 second timeout. So it is somewhere in between.

It's amazing that the yanks can't sit still and enjoy a game for 30 - 40 minutes without needing to get up to do something else. The time outs/breaks in play are there mainly for tv commercials, not to benefit the fans at the game watching it live. Beats me how anyone can tolerate being (3 hours +) at a sporting event an extra hour or so simply to accommodate advertisers. *shrugs*

Apologies if this is covered already... but can this work through the PS4? Thinking of doing it with one of those 8 games packages when I'm off work over xmas, would be nice to watch it on something other than my tablet. Don't have a smart tv...

Looking for advice... I've just bought an 8 game pass with the intention of watching the Christmas games. I log in, hit 'Watch Game', and it does nothing.... as if I have no subscribtion. I check 'My Account' details and I definitely have subscribed. Have I missed something or is this a special Christmas day shafting from the good folk at NBA League Pass??

Anybody having difficulties with streaming games in LP? It's been 2 days since the Clips vs Wolves game and I still can't watch it. I've got some free time at the moment and none of today's game are loading up either.
