NBA launches live video, audio streaming apps for iPhone

updated 04:05 pm EDT, Thu October 29, 2009

Video streaming carries restrictions

The NBA has released a new app for the iPhone and iPod touch, NBA League Pass Mobile. Users can watch live TV coverage of over 40 basketball games per week, while optionally viewing overlay information such as the current score and live player stats. Games can be replayed up to 48 hours after their original broadcast.

Streaming is possible over both Wi-Fi and 3G connections, though 3G video is typically played at reduced quality. The app is also available only in the US, and it relies on location information to block a person from watching local games. A price of $40 covers all games in the 2009-2010 season.

Also new is a $10 paid version of Game Time, upgraded to include live radio coverage of all matches, including hometown ones. Push notifications can be assigned for particular teams and games, and more supplemental info is now available, including game summaries and an NBA.com news feed. The free version is still accessible, but does not incorporate radio or most other new features.
