I clicked on this thread hoping there was breaking news that the NBA & Sony made a deal similar to how MLB is setup on PS3 right now
Honestly just my experience with MLB.TV streaming for a month compared to NBA League Pass Broadband for a full season last year.
The NBA is light years away and their service needs serious improvements on both the broadband & TV NBA League Pass services they offer. I also had NBA League Pass on TV for about 4 years before I had to go with the NBA League Pass Broadband service last year because AT&T U-Verse currently does not offer NBA League Pass or even NBATV
Comparing MLB.TV to NBA League Pass Broadband:
-MLB.TV offers a package that lets you watch game streams in HD. NBA League Pass Broadband or the TV version gives you no games in HD which is a joke. Considering other sports pacakges like NFL Sunday Ticket offer all games in HD both TV package & Internet stream package.
-NBA League Pass broadband also does not allow you to watch games that are shown on NBTV. Even if your favorite team is playing out of the home market & region. So for example if your a Laker fan like myself and NBA League Pass broadband is your only option and you don't get NBATV also and say the Lakers are on the road and the game is voted in for the Tuesday night "NBA Fan Night" game to be shown on NBATV your screwed and can't watch that game on NBA League Pass Broadband.
