Im thinking of getting this next season.
Im wondering from those that had it:
Do you get dual feeds and are the majority of games available like Extra Innings? Thanks for any opinions.

Dual feeds were pretty much better this year. Not all were, but most were. Which team(s) were you looking to follow?

You know what I hated about LP? No local commercials - D* (or the NBA) put all their own promos over the local commercials.

I actually got NBALP one year because I wanted to see the Trailblazers and the local Portland ads (I used to live in Beaverton).

You should get pretty much all the dual feeds minus your local NBA team(s) then you'll only see their feed. The nice thing (at least the last 2 yrs) was you also get free online NBA LP.

I like the Phoenix Suns. Disappointed to hear no local commercials. Thats one of the reasons I like the D'Backs feed in baseball( My girlfriend is from Arizona and her family still lives there).

PS My main feeling is there enough basketball on TNT and ESPN but it might be nice to have access to the Suns telecasts.

There's local commercials for most feeds...it's just remaps of RSNs like MLBEI, NHLCI, etc. They even added HD for Portland games this last year from Comcast Sportsnet.

Every Suns game seemed to be on FSNAZ (with AZ ads).

My45 in Phoenix carried 41 games. The remaining were shared with FSNAZ and ABC/TNT. NBA LP shows the My45 games with local ads.

Were the My45 games in HD on LP? I can't remember.

Sorry to the OP being wrong about how many were on FSNAZ. I rarely use or have in my guide the LP, CI, or EI channels since most are on RSNs for teams I follow.

Boston bill should get most of the Suns' games in HD, may not be the home feed all the time when on MY45, but he'll have other team's HD feed. With the HD feeds CSN-BA and CSN-Cali being added full-time, we should have even more western conference team HD feeds.

D* Setup:

Slimline (AU9-S) w/no multiswitch
(1) HR21-100 0x87F (7/8/08 Made in Mexico) via HDMI to Pioneer PDP-6020FD
(1) HR24-100 0x87F (11/9/10 Made in Thailand) via HDMI to Panasonic TC-P58S2

FIOS 150/150

Basically w/ the NBA you'll get to watch every game -- no exclusive windows black games out as with MLB. On the other hand, compared to Extra Innings, you'll have to watch more of the games on a national network rather than your regional channel of choice -- games shown on ESPN/TNT/NBATV will always be blacked out for out-of-market League Pass folks even when the games are also carried on the RSNs.

HR23-700 --> Samsung UN65F6350AF LCD
HR23-700 --> JVC JLC47BC3002 LCD
H24-200 -->

I am thinking about subscribing but was wondering if anyone that had the package last year knows if you received the San Antonio Spurs local broadcasts on KENS-TV (NBC 5) & KMYS-TV (CW 35) in high definition through LP? And if yes do you receive the local commercials or do they show the NBA stats central that iNDemand does for local cable/telco providers during commercial breaks?

Spurs are not in my local market so I am aware that they will NOT be blacked out provided there not shown on a National TV or Local RSN channel.

Thanks

If you ordered LP are you able to watch the Preseason games on the RSN's or are they blacked out. Thanks.

Anyone having luck getting a deal on LP yet?
The first CSR I tried shut me down.

What about the availability of 76ers games in HD? I ask because CI offered many Flyers games only in SD.

The 76ers feed is never HD...The opponent feed usually is.

I saw every Spurs game last year so you'll get them all. I honestly can't remember if you get the local commercials on the KENS and CW35 games but I don't remember ever seeing the stats central stuff, so I'm guessing yes.

I have had NBALP the last 3 years. I called to cancel last year but they gave me some discounts to keep it for the shortened season. Last month my bill said it was to renew for 6 payments of 29.99 on a future bill. The new bill I got today for 10/20-11/19 shows nothing on it except to announce the week free preview. Not sure what this means but it is kind of weird! When I click on NBA it says I can activate it but not sure I want to now! Seems like 2 years ago I called to cancel and got one of the monthly payments waived to keep it and I was hoping to do that this year as I'm paying for ST Max and Premier and 150.00 sounds like a good deal for it. Anyone else have it dissapear from your account or get a discount on it?

When you sub to League Pass, do you also get full access to the Broadband and Mobile programming packages? and if you get broadband access, will it work with the Roku?
