    Games on 684-1 for me. Maybe they fixed it?

    Also on 763 but only a logo on 763-1.

    I am not sure if I remember this happening before (I am sure it has though) but the Kings @ Spurs game 2/1 8:30pm ET is not listed as being available on League Pass on D*? I do not see it listed on the schedule online or in the guide. Both feeds happen to be OTA broadcasts KXTV - News10 for the Kings and KENS 5 for the Spurs.
    Is it possible us out of market LP subscribers will not have a feed at all for this game since both are OTA broadcasts?

    EDIT: Guide has now been updated to show the game will be available on channel 763 / 763-1 HD and its indicated in (parentheses) it will be the Spurs Broadcast; so it looks like they will be using KENS 5 which is the local CBS affiliate in San Antonio.

    KENS 5 (CBS) feed is live on 763 / 763-1 HD with local commercials for the Kings @ Spurs game. This is one of the first times I can remember them using this feed and its mainly because both telecasts are local OTA stations tonight.

    Not sure which feed In Demand is using since there HD games schedule for Feb. hasn't been posted yet...

    Not sure which feed Dish is using either but its in SD according to Game Finder on there site.

    EDIT: In Demand (FiOS, cable, U-Verse, etc.) ended up using KENS as well for there feed according to there online HD games schedule.


    I know this is an old post but the ones I placed a strike-through no longer show live NBA games. This Wiki article seems pretty accurate with the information about which channel(s) each specific teams broadcasts are on.

    Moving forward it appears there is no longer any "-1" (dash 1's) for NBA LP HD channels. :) :righton: I remember NFL ST did away with them several seasons ago. I assume they will remain on NHL CI channels for the time being especially since there are still SD only games.

    The only slight issue I see is if you have Hide SD duplicates enabled then you do not see the NBA Stats Central (SD Only) channel, instead only the extra HD feed (formerly 750-1) which has been used in the past when a large number of games are on that night. Changing guide display preferences to show All Channels will show both 750s (where you are able to access the Stats channel).

    D* will have to update the information in this support topic as well. https://support.directv.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2981
    Lastly, the upcoming LP schedule on the D* website will need to be updated to reflect the changes.

    I will try to check on 2/25 when the Bulls play next on WGN-TV/WGN America to see if anything has changed since the "-1"s have been removed but last time they did not have it remapped and you had to tune to 307.

    There certainly is no reason they could not remap it to the 750-768 channel range as it would be easier especially if you like to flip around to different games as it keeps all the channels close together.

    What about the RSN's that don't have all overflow feeds in HD? I think there may be some that don't have there 2th / 3rd over flow in HD.

    The WGN local only games and WCIU games? Will they get them in HD?

    I am not sure if that is still an issue of not, it seems all the LP games have been in HD this year. Of course, they don't always pick up both home and away feeds of course if its on OTA stations or RSNs they don't normally carry but even if only one feed it has always been in HD this season from what I can tell.

    NBA League pass just renewed on my statement. NBA regular season begins in less than 2 weeks, but as a displaced Knicks fan, I asked myself do i really want/need to spend $200 for a subscription?
    Have not seen any discussion of discounts offered other than $30 off, so figured it's worth a call to DirecTV to see about any offers. Nothing was offered, so I cancelled NBA since there was no discount for auto renewal anyway and will wait and see if a better discount becomes available.

    Has anyone been successful in getting their free mobile broadband subscription activated? I keep trying and I get a message saying my account is not authorized even though LP support says my subscription has been activated.

    I'm in the same boat. Every year this has been happening to me. You would think since Turner has been managing the NBA's digital assets for many years, this would no longer be an issue. Fortunately, there is a free trial through Nov. 4 so hopefully it will get resolved by then.

    Update: I was finally able to login successfully! It took two weeks of badgering LP customer service to get it done, and yes, I had activated at NBA.com before trying to get my mobile devices working.

    From my experience (and others I believe have stated the same) it's best to wait until after the free trial (Nov 5th or later) to attempt the activation, especially if you had it last year and your using the same NBA All-Access account profile. I believe it's because the free trial overrides the paid subscription in the system and confuses it or something. And you don't have to activate it yet anyway since the free trial will give you the access needed.

    I called D* today; spoke to retention and was able to get NBALP for free this season! They also gave 15 dollars off for 15 months and another 5 off for 24 months. Since my contract is almost up in another week they sweetened the deal for me and I did not have to reup my contract.

    This year alone I have numerous billing credits that total 30 a month, a free genie go and half off NFLST max so I'm a happy camper.
