NEWS: DISH Unbundles NBA Coverage with Single Team Packages

DISH keeps turning out news announcement after news announcement.  You may recall I shared a post yesterday about the YouTube App being available only from DISH on their Hopper 3.  I woke up this morning to more great news.  Now, DISH is offering NBA fans coverage during the basketball season, with options to follow your favorite teams or a single team.  And, for a limited time, they are letting current DISH subscribers try out their NBA TEAM PASS for FREE for 1 week.

Here is more about the NBA TEAM PASS, and announcement from DISH.  

"Today, DISH became the first pay-TV provider to offer NBA TEAM PASS. The new single team offering, available for $119, will allow DISH customers to follow any one of the NBA’s 30 teams throughout the regular season with live access to every out-of-market game.
DISH will continue to offer NBA LEAGUE PASS, the sport’s full season package, for $199 with up to 40 live out-of-market games from around the league every week and on demand coverage.
This launch makes DISH the only pay-TV provider that allows fans to choose whether they’d like to follow only their favorite NBA team or the entire league.
“As the NBA laces up for a new season, DISH is giving customers the choice of following the entire league or picking their favorite team,” said Josh Clark, vice president of Programming for DISH. “Now an NBA fan on the East Coast who wants to follow just their favorite West Coast team can opt for NBA TEAM PASS.”
Starting NBA Opening Night on October 25 through November 1, DISH will unlock NBA LEAGUE PASS to all customers in free preview so that NBA fans can get a jumpstart on watching their favorite team or the whole league.
DISH customers may purchase NBA TEAM PASS or NBA LEAGUE PASS for the 2016-2017 season by calling 1-877-DISH PPV (347-4778). Customers have the option to pay for NBA TEAM PASS in four installments of $29.75 or NBA LEAGUE PASS in four installments of $49.75.
NBA TEAM PASS and NBA LEAGUE PASS provide customers with access to regular season, out-of-market games only. Games watched on DISH will be subject to local blackouts depending on the customer’s location."
The folks at DISH have graciously offered to set me up with a NBA TEAM PASS for my favorite basketball team, the Boston Celtics.  I can't wait to try out the service.  How about you? Which team or teams will you be requesting all-access to?
