Streams well and I enjoy the extras like classic games. 3/5
My biggest annoyance is that I live in Vegas so I don’t get any LA games because of blackout restrictions. I will say I understand that, it’s the fact that I also get black out restrictions on Sacramento games but not on Warriors games. Not sure who is to blame with that but it gets pretty frustrating. Also why would nba league pass black out nba TV games? Change these things and I’ll continue to pay my subscription but right now not looking to pay again next year.
It would be good but... 3/5
By AJ apple juice gaming
I think that the league pass is to expensive and how you NEED to spend 30$ a month even if you only want to watch ONE game that month
ADS ARE TOO LONG AND TOO ANNOYING 1/5
By BRUH WTH
Paid for this crap and can’t even watch the games due to a “blackout” waste of money I’m not paying for this no more
👍🏾😁👍🏾 Good app 5/5
Cool 😎 you can choose your favorite teams
Would be a 5 Star if: 4/5
Overall I am happy with this subscription and APP on my Apple TV and on my iPhone. The interface is smooth and the video quality is superb. The mobile view is a great feature, and I LOVE the backboard camera views when available. I also love the no-commercial Premium option. Watching timeout festivities in the stadium is actually quite cool.
This would be a 5-star App if the following happened:
1) Please allow for split screen to view multiple games at a time (Not mandatory on iOS, but definately needed on TVOS
2) Please allow access to older content. I would love to go back and watch some classic matchups going all the way back to the 80s. I beleive this used to be a feature in the past (maybe even as early as last year). I would like to see this available again. Users who buy the League Pass are your biggest NBA fans, feed us.
Very awful app hate it 5/5
By RA RED
How You have to download the game before you watch the game
Terrible video quality 1/5
I’ve used this app for years, mainly to look at game recaps. Every time I look at a recap, it is very blurry and unwatchable despite WiFi and perfect service. After countless updates, I would think the issue would be fixed. I now rely on YouTube for game recaps. This is the official NBA app... fix it!
If I weren’t such a basketball junky I wouldn’t even bother. Slow, empty links, the video feeds for the games have to be reset every 5 minutes. You’d think a multi billion dollar industry like the NBA could give the fans a good app.
Baaaaaaad Quality Video 4/5
Please fix it when you watch videos it’s veryyyyyy badddd quality!!! ASAP
I already want to cancel 2/5
By Russell Wright
Why?!?!?! Why do you guys have blackout restrictions. I live in Rhode Island and want to watch my favorite team play, the Celtics but NOOOOO,
Very misleading 1/5
If you I considering paying for a live NBA package there is a massive downfall. Half the games you paid for, if not more are blacked out due to broadcast restrictions. Most the time I find myself using other last television apps to broadcast the games due to the on consistency of this app.
Offline Mode 1/5
You allow users to download games to watch when offline yet the app has an issue when you are offline. I think a slight redesign is needed. Update-I got a response from the “developer “ and clearly they didn’t read anything I wrote. The response had nothing to do with my issue. For that, rating reduced! Great customer sat!
I want what I pay for... 2/5
By King Vultier
I’m paying for the League Pass and the last thing I want to listen to is the apposing team’s color announcers. You black out my team announcers on certain games and I hate that! I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR THE APPOSING TEAMS ANNOUNCERS!!!! CRAP!
Can’t upgrade / Customer service not so helpful 2/5
The NBA app makes it look easy to “upgrade” to all-league access (beyond the one team I currently subscribe to) but when I try to do so I get a message that I need to call NBA League Pass support...they even give you the phone # to call. When you call the provided League Pass phone #, the agents say you must call “Apple” or “iTunes”. I emailed NBA League Pass seeking help. They also say that I need to contact Apple. Does Apple even have a customer care #? Not sure how Apple will help with in-app functionality but maybe when I have a spare couple hours I’ll try finding someone to speak with at Apple. Hmm.
Won't load 1/5
Sends me back to App Store to install update.
could be better 3/5
I like being able to get scores and see video recaps. But your stats section could so much better. Can only see current season. Should be able to see career stats and individual seasons. Can't click on an individual player from stats lists either. Learn from the MLB app and then you'll have an improved app.
I have a league pass. App allows me to sign in successfully with the league pass, then tells me I need to buy a league pass to watch a game. Then I am blocked. Frustrating and useless.
Hate it when you cant use the app 3/5
I hate it when there is a new update and you cant use the app until you update the app
why ! 1/5
why it says i enter a wrong username or passcode when i sign in via iPhone but it’s works via macbook !!!!!!!
btw i canceled my subscription 😏💔 smh

Poor Video Quality 3/5
I have been using the NBA app for several years, and enjoyed it.
Recently, I've noticed that the video quality is terrible. What is super annoying is that the video quality for advertisements is perfect, but game footage (recaps, top plays, etc) is blurry. The advertisers would never stand for blurry video and neither should we. Treat us with some respect!
This happens on my iOS phone as well as my iOS iPad. Both have the most recent iOS software and the most recent app version.
Please find a fix!
All Star Game version very buggy 2/5
By Del Curry
It made me upgrade last wknd and tonites late games were not reporting scoring in any semblance of sync to the live action
It’s great when it doesn’t freezes 3/5
I just missed the end of a 1 point game because it froze. My internet was fine otherwise, so it must have been on the NBA’s end. When it works, the app is alright.
One of my favorite apps you can watch half the games on the app and it is really good!
By Color wise
How does this app not work on any off my iOS devices after watching all season? App is crap paid too much money for this inconvenience.
By Eagles trade for heart
So much fun ..sad no one
Fix the bug 4/5
After the all star weekend the app shows the games from Monday 19, but with today’s date .. I can’t see who is playing today.
Quick Question to the support team. 1/5
I emailed the support team and I never got a response. I want to change my league pass package. Also, are the playoffs available to watch on the league pass?
Issues with Games 3/5
When I’m trying to watch games on my phone or tablet, can’t watch them . I have the League Pass. Very disappointed.
Always something 1/5
I love the NBA so much, they do so many things right - why is their app consistently the worst? If it isn't one, it's another. It's telling me now there's an update but the app has been blacked on me since the All-Star break. The website and league pass are always acting janky too. GET. IT. TOGETHER.
Wish it were better 2/5
By Ruam Smith
Attempting to scrub back and forth while casting games to a display continues to be one of the must difficult experiences with in app video playback I’ve ever had. It makes rewinding to catch something you’ve missed, or attempted to bypass a commercial a task so difficult you’d rather not even attempt.
All Star 2018 Coverage is horrible. 1/5
Why is it that either on my Phone or TV every minute there is a stuffer or it goes to low quality?(I have an IPhone 6s and PS4 for the TV both on WIFi with speeds of 80mbs and higher) During the 3-point contest the screen when black for 5 seconds at one of the more important parts. App need to be fixed. Also WHY IS THE CAMERA ONLY ON THE PLAYER FOR SOME OF THE CAMERA ANGLES for 3-point contest, I want to see the makes not just the player! And even why is there not any type of SCOREBOARD TO SEE THE MAKES AND MISSES. Makes me so mad. Tried every camera angle (Bearing through the stupid ads when I PAID FOR THIS SUBSCRIPTION) and nothing works. I'm tempted to never watch from this app every again. PLEASE FIX OR DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS APP.
Thank God For This App 5/5
This Is by far the best app for anything NBA being in a fantasy league I love bouncing back and fourth between live games on league pass and being able to catch highlights for all the games I miss
forcing updates???????? I dont get it. 1/5
iPhone X 2/5
The iPhone X has been out for months and the NBA still hasn’t managed to get league pass to fit the screen. Feels like you’re watching on an IPhone 4.
Solid app 4/5
Use this for watching the game recaps, and skimming quick news videos. Then for the gossip, mini highlight vids, and other extra stuff, The Score app ;)
I have the last version of the iPhone software. According to the Apple Store I can download the last version to be compatible but when I open the NBA app it says I need the latest version
Nba app 1/5
Can’t watch local or nationally broadcasted games and those are the good ones. I bought this app to see those games at will but you can’t. That’s annoying. If I could Return for a refund I would
Ads are taking over the app 5/5
I liked using this app to keep up on scores of games that I missed. But now every tine I try to use the app, an ad flies up and keeps me from seeing what I want.
UPDATE: the ads pop up whenever I go to a different screen within the app. It hasn’t happened for a few days, so I’m wondering if it was a fluke. The ad was for dog food.
A video add pops up every 5 seconds when trying to scroll through the news feed. I’m deleting this app in 5, 4, 3, 2...
***in reply to NBA app’s question... as I clearly stated, scrolling through the news feed. You’re aware the app has a news feed called “top stories”?
Iphone X full screen Support 2/5
The App appears really smooth and worth the subscription, but I want to suggest a full screen setting for the iPhone X. This will cause me to add additional stars for a five-star rating. I am frequently on the road and would enjoy a full-screen experience. Thanks
By East Oakland 98
I have used this app for years but the video quality has gotten worse. The first 10-20 seconds of a video is always blurry and at first I thought there was an issue with my phone. Even under the perfect signal conditions I am unable to see a full clear video. Is there going to be a fix for that soon? My friends all have the same issue.
Download speed is 97.1 mbps upload is 10.9 mbps and ping is 11 mins. I haven’t looked at any archived games yet.
Garbage (to be nice) 1/5
App won't even open because there's a new version... Except there isn't. So amazing. Lol
Freezing freezing freezing 1/5
By Guy P
If I could make it through one game without the feed freezing, I might give it better ratings. Persistent issue throughout multiple platforms (appletv, iPad, iPhone, ps3, ps4) even with gigabit Ethernet.
I ran the speed test as requested during one of the freezing episodes. 367Mbps download 356Mbps upload and 8ms ping.
This app is soooo up and down. Your better off purchasing YOUTUBE tv. Cheaper. Plus I’m not forced to watch the opposing team, due to the Houston Rockets game always being in [email protected]
$!?& Spanish. I LIVE IN AMERICA!!! So go figure. It’s not even a option. Disrespectful to me and every one who watches and buys NBA. I think I’m switching back to NFL. I have always been a rockets fan to. I go to at least 7-12 games a yr. Plus our Xmas was based on NBA presents. No anymore. Plus you have to stay in the app. Once your out of the app. You have to start the game over again. Plus these pos try to tell me there is a option on Spanish for the Rockets. NO THERE IS NOT. YOU FORCE PROPLE TO WATCH THE OTHER FEEDS. YOUTUBE TV is BETTER. Plus you keep emailing me on the 2 low grade teams play. Telling me and bragging how it was in English. Let me tell you. It was the only 2 games in English. What about the other games. Get your priorities correct. Or lose a half of country over some wet back ish. YOUTUBE or PLAYSTATION VUE IS 100 percent optional. I can watch my ROCKETS game without all the rockets bashing of the other team. This site is hypocritical and flat out liars. Make that ish optional. Not forced. NBA should stand for NOT BOUT ANYONE!!!! But money. Don’t email me back support!! Nada you can say will be true.
BACK: Audio subscription 5/5
Kudos to NBA for restoring the audio-only subscription after I’d complained in the 2017-18 app review. The League has wonderful radio play-by-play announcers and analysts in each city and they all make the fan experience unique in pro sports. It’s a joy to listen to the drama of every slam, crossover, and swat of the basketball; NBA radio talents link the listener to the game and all its intensity in a way that video experiences cannot, almost like we can hear more of the game than we can see on TV. So, thanks NBA for listening and connecting fans everywhere to the game we love.
Please fix your app! 1/5
Another app that crashes all the time. I love the app, but half the time it is useless specially for videos. You would think they would be able to create a stable app with the money they get from NBA.
Videos not loading 2/5
Whenever I try to watch a game recap the video won’t load. Some videos load and some don’t. Please fix
Very glitchy app 1/5
The app here is very bad. Constantly serving very low quality video. By very low quality I mean not just not being able to see the players faces but even the numbers on the jerseys🤣🤣🤣 Seems to me the nba are resting on the laurels of record breaking revenues. This app is doing what it can to make me love nba hoop less. I have tried it on a dozen different high speed wifi connections and it is the same. So, clearly, a server issue.
