I've already shared with you part i of my odyssey with League Pass Broadband. Now it's part ii.
This time around I tried to get a friendly Turner Sports customer service rep to tell me about what regulations or policies dictate the IP address requirements for paying customers who are too far away from the arena for broadcast TV or radio but who aren't far enough to be able to watch all of the games on line they thought they paid for with the broadband service. Here's a little sample:
12:23:33 natearchok, so can you please tell me how the nba would like me to watch my favorite team?12:24:00 JesseOn TV.12:24:28 natearchi've told you, i don't have cable; are you telling me the NBA wants me to buy additional cable service to watch their product?12:24:43 natearchto include games that are on free broadcast tv in the twin cities?12:26:16 natearchyes, no?12:26:50 JesseI have said this before if it is on TV in your area it will be Blacked out. Even if you have to pay extra to get it is still available to you to access. Those are the blackout rules set by the NBA.
