  • Not right

    By lgbcu
    I don’t like the fact that I can’t watch my team on my phone when everyone else does because I live here
  • Can’t watch games

    By markymarx
    Downloaded app to watch game and it’s blacked out. Don’t advertise to “download now” to watch a live game if that’s not true.
  • Needs Support for iPhone X and above

    By drewmiller413
    Would give 5 stars, but there’s no support for my iPhone XS Max. I can’t even use the extra space on the bigger screen to watch games. Disappointing, but other than that I love the app!
  • Glad To See NBA TV Option!!

    By Eat Sh-t
    Thank you for providing the option to view NBA TV via my cable provider subscription!!!
  • Don’t bother if you use Roku

    By Name246
    The app still crashes multiple times while I’m watching a game (live or playback). How is there no “resume” function? Each time it crashes you have to fast forward from the beginning! How is this app not be on par with other streaming services in this department? Also, ads? For the cost to use this service, stop it. If Netflix or Hulu ever get into streaming live basketball games I’m switching over.
  • Doesn’t allow for mobile to Apple TV

    By GMoneyS
    Option to move to other platforms flat out does not work and is just a dead icon. Garbage.
  • GARBAGE!!!

    By m1nd000
    You’re better off googling everything, the app is SLOW! and terrible!!!!!! don’t waste your memory
  • Doesn't work

    By Daryl V.
    11/11/18 Update: The iPad version of the NBA app continues to be an embarrassment to the NBA. After all these years, they continue to fail at producing a quality product. The incompetence of their app development team is astounding. 2010: This app is a poor representation of the NBA brand. I don't think David Stern has seen this yet.
  • Love NBA but hate commercials

    By leo2geo
    I love NBA league pass. But I am paying the top monthly fee that promises no commercials. For the most part there are no commercials and it’s fun to see the in arena feed. However, I follow and watch the Indiana Pacers and they are sneaking a commercial in during the free throws. I don’t know if other teams are doing this. Can you please make them stop? The commercial during the free throw is for some local Indy plumbing company that I will never use where I live. If not for these annoying commercials I would give league pass 5 stars.
  • Chromecast doesn’t work

    By asiatownusa
    I don’t have cable so NBA league pass is my main method for watching the NBA. Whenever I try to cast the app to try TV, it refuses to connect. Even more frustrating is the response from NBA League Pass support. I have contacted them two times over the past year. The first time, my issue was elevated to “IT support” and I haven’t heard back from them yet. This was over 9 months ago. I recently filed a support request for my chromecast issue and I expect a similar nonresponse.
