When is NBA League Pass 2019-2020 available?

Does anyone know when NBA League Pass for the 2019-2020 season will be available for order?  All I see is the following online "We hope you enjoyed the NBA season. Check back in early October 2019 for updated pricing and package information for NBA League Pass."

Thanks!

I’m wondering the same. I was talking to an Xfinity Rep via chat today and I told them I see games playing on NBA League Pass / MLS Direct Kick channels (TEAM1, TEAM2, etc.) but when I go to tune to those channels it’s telling me that I need to subscribe.

I asked if they could add NBA League Pass to my account and the rep told me she couldn’t find the code to add it which then led to them telling me it’s not available yet.

Granted it’s preseason. But why have the preseason games showing in the guide and yet the customer can’t watch or subscribe to the service? It’s very misleading.

But the Rep told me that Comcast and NBA have not reached an agreement in place yet (not sure if that’s true or not).

It’s upsetting because I wanted to watch some of the preseason games too.

I just called and spoke with someone as well. Same response — she couldn’t find the code so she said it must not be available yet. She said she wasn’t sure why it’s not available, and that I should check back next week. Very frustrating because I wanted to watch preseason!

So I was just on Twitter and saw a response the official Xfinity account responded to someone inquiring about NBA League Pass:

“Hey! NBA League Pass will be available for purchase starting October 11th, so be sure to check your X1 device for pricing details starting then. If you're referring to the Florida Panthers, then you can order NHL Center Ice which is now available.”

So check this Friday!

I just ordered it from the X-1 service.  4 installments of $49.95--so a $200 package.

Good to know.  The website Xfinity still shows as unavailable but I'll have to get on X1 when I get home.

Still not available. What a bummer.

So...I just purchased League Pass through X1, but the game I want to watch isn’t on..?? And it’s not on local TV, so I’m confused. I thought League Pass was supposed to include all preseason games? I can watch other games that are in now but not the game I want to watch (my team). Smiley Sad

I just called Xfinity and after spending 30 minutes on the phone was told it was not available. So frustrating.

Same @Quique_Schwarz. I’m not sure how these other posters in this thread able to sign up through X1. The Xfinity rep even directed me to signing up through the NBA app which was weird. Granted the person I was chatting with was outsourced (another country). So I’m not sure if they know if it’s available or not here in the States or got the memo.

I’m confused. And no reps here on the board will chime in and say anything. I Googled previous NBA League Pass topics on this forum from years back and there was always a rep responding with the date when NBA League Pass would be available.

This year seems different. No one.

I turned to one of the nba channels and a box popped up saying I had to subcribe to access the channel and there was a subcribe button to press--so I hit enter with my remote (or whatever you call the little circle in the middle of the remote) and then the pricing came up and it asked me to confirm, which I did.  The channel then tuned in--no games were on but later the nuggest-clippers was on and earlier today there were a few games on.

Thanks! I found it doing that a few minutes ago and was about to come back to my post and edit it. But yeah. I remember a few days ago the “subscribe” option wasn’t there.

But yesterday (10/11), I was trying to look for NBA League Pass as a banner in the NBA tab under Sports and under the Manage Channels app on my X1 box. But didn’t see it for either.

Tuning to one of the NBA League / MLS Direct Kick channels showed that pop up as you mentioned. Along with the $49.75 for 4 months notice. But I’m subscribed now. I’ll have to wait till Monday to watch some games Smiley Happy

So much for Xfinity Reps misleading me with Comcast not doing NBA League Pass this year. That was close :/

I signed up for  NBA league pass thru infinity but rght now the internet NBA league pass  mobile version does not recognize comcast/infinity as a provider.

Will this change soon?

Would somebody from Xfinity be able to advise me on what to do? I don’t have X1 and am trying to buy NBA League Pass.

The last couple of years the NBA League Pass subscription has auto renewed but so far not yet. I tried to watch a preseason game and was given the option to renew on screen but I don't want to get double charged. Sounds like a call to Comcast wouldn't be too helpful at this point?

I ordered it this morning with my X1 remote- look like it went through fine. Tried to watch a game tonight comes up with an error code and ‘order is still processing’

Re: When is NBA League Pass 2019-2020 available?

Here in Massachusetts: still no subscription option for NBA League Pass. When accessing the channel after using my X1 Remote: it just redirects me to the website which ultimately asks me to check back in "Early October". It's October 16th..... hello????

How is this available for some and not others?? It's ridiculous.

I am on with tech support now. They have reset my box and seemed surprised that did not fix it. I ordered it via the remote. But get an error code when I try to watch
New Poster

Re: When is NBA League Pass 2019-2020 available?

Same here. I ordered and showed an error for like 3 days, then called and said the order never went thru and its not available yet 

New Poster

Re: When is NBA League Pass 2019-2020 available?

So your saying even though Comcast says it has nba league pass, They actually will not have it available this year ?

Re: When is NBA League Pass 2019-2020 available?

I just talked with an Xfinity chat rep and they told me NBA League Pass wasn't available so I assumed Xfinity just didn't offer it this season (which is hard to believe since Xfinity is one of the biggest cable providers) but after reading posts in this thread it sounds like there might be a chance.

 

I really want to get it thru Xfinity cause I use streaming only and their streaming seems really good. Last season I purchased NBA League Pass thru NBA.com and Sling.com and with both streaming wasn't great (ie. streaming would stall pretty often).

Bought NBA League Pass via Nba.com

Tried to figure out how to get that to Comcast/xfinity, spent some time with a rep and showed him how it is not available to connect the 2.

Really frustrating, told him to move it up the chain since big wigs don't have a clue.

According to the Xfinity twitter account it will be available ‘soon’

comcast hasnt been listed as provider for mobile use on nba.com or on nba app in couple seasons  you will have to conctact nba.com league pass support provide proof of purchase and they will authenticate account

I didnt see that on Twitter.. I contacted these morons about 10 times this week and keep getting different answers!! Nobody seems to know what's going on.. it starts tomorrow and we still cant order it! What a joke...

Re: When is NBA League Pass 2019-2020 available?

Well you can’t have your xfinity account authenticated with them until you purchase league boss they xfinity. Issue now is tho it is still unavailable. Any of the support or help isn’t going to have an answer .. this likely is a contract/pricing issue that will either be resolved or won’t lol

Will it be available by tomorrow!???

Re: When is NBA League Pass 2019-2020 available?

Unsure why you think I would have answer to that but I have decided as league pass consumer that if not there by weds I will
Sign up directly through nba.com and stream it on my Apple TV and other devices... which I prefer not to do

Clock is ticking... I'll be cancelling if this is not available by Wednesday.  I'm still not clear if anyone was successful ordering via their remote.   Was anyone able to order and watch pre-season games through their X1?

New Poster

Re: When is NBA League Pass 2019-2020 available?

Nobody was successful... it’s not an option as of now. ... who knows whose fault. Could be NBA’s for all we know. Maybe they up’d their per subscriber fee .. maybe it’s Comcast.... who knows

Xfinity is so lame. How can NBA season be ready to start and there is no legit info on how to sign up? And no one from Xfinity bothers to monitor this site to maybe find some help? Double pathetic.

Re: When is NBA League Pass 2019-2020 available?

I just spoke with an xfinity rep on the phone and was told that they're not offering NBA league pass this year.

The X1 box just let me order it (ch. 751). After I ordered the NBA schedule appears for the games available to watch tomorrow. Fingers crossed

Re: When is NBA League Pass 2019-2020 available?

It just became available on my system as well. That's the good news. Bad news I wanted a lessor package just for a single team, but that option doesn't seem to be available. Just the $200 get it all package.
