    Officially no, unofficially yes.

    I have a theory on why we're all getting this extended preview. At some point E* and the NBA will come to terms. Then those who chose to subscribe will be charged the full price, even though the season has already started. When a subscriber complains, E* can honestly say "you did not miss a thing - all those games were available to you".

    Gotcha. And we will probably miss out on the "early bird" discount as well. Funny how they have no record of me being on autorenewal even though I've had the League Pass for about 6 or 7 years now!! Basically I was told to keep checking back to order.......what a joke! Unbelievable that they can't just charge me for the package when (if) this mess gets settled!

    Apparently, they must've reached an agreement:

    NBA LEAGUE PASS on DISH Network Season Ticket - Channels 560 - 572
    NBA League Pass is available to order TODAY!

    NBA LEAGUE PASS brings you maximum coverage of your favorite NBA action with up to 40 regular season games a week not otherwise available in your local area. Plus your subscription includes NBA LEAGUE PASS Broadband, NBA LEAGUE PASS Stats Central, and select games in high definition.

    Channels 560- 572

    Regular Season Price: $189 or 3 payments of $63

    =========

    No mention of NBA TV's continued inclusion though. And no early bird price. But, at least it's available, and I'm thankful for that.

    $189, the same price as DirecTV or Comcast charge.

    Just called and got the League Pass added, at the Early Bird rate (supposedly) after a 29:13 phone call. Apparantly adding it back on even though you were SUPPOSED to be on auto renewal is a major production...... Like someone else here commented, at least it's available! Thanks, Charlie!

    So auto-renewal is broken, Aaron? I have to call and add it BACK in even though I had it last season? Sheesh!

    I just checked my account online and found this activity from overnight on Friday morning:

    NBA LP EARLY BIRD CREDIT -$20.00
    11/15 11/15 NBA LEAGUE PASS 0809 01 OF 03 03:00 A.M -$-0.00
    11/15 11/15 NBA LEAGUE PASS 0809 01 OF 03 03:00 A.M $63.00

    So it looks like the billing portion of auto renewal is working, at least, complete with the early bird price. We'll see if the games show up. They were there last night.

    Ordered the package a few minutes ago.
    Games are showing fine.:)

    Got a $5.00 credit which is a technical wave of the programming charge.

    So you didn't have to call and order? Very strange, I had been calling every 2 or 3 days since the season started, and was told everytime that the auto renewals basically were "lost" or "not going to happen", when I was finally able to order, it took the guy almost 30 minutes to turn it on because he was "having problems with the 'code' they use for early bird activation".....

    I should also note that I was told to call back in 4 days or so to make sure I got the early bird credit. I am an AT&T/Dish Network customer, if that makes any difference......

    It was added to my account as well without me calling. I was also issued a $20 credit.

    3 easy payments of $63 and a $20 credit. I am happy they got this resolved.

    Got my AT&T/Dish bill and was charged the full $189 amount. No early bird and not in 3 payments like I had asked. Called the Billing Customer Service line and got a CSR that was totally confused by what I was telling him. I just wanted a $20 credit for the Early Bird special, he said he was going to transfer me to a supervisor, I got a automated menu just like I had when I called, and had to wait for someone to help me. 19:15 into the call, I got another CSR, told him what the situation was, total of 22:43 for him to tell me my $20 credit would be on my next bill....
