With the NBA playoffs about to kick off you might be wondering where you can find a live stream, especially if you own an iPad or iPhone thanks to the massive selection of iOS apps. Digging around from thousands of apps only makes this task harder, so we thought publishing this quick article revealing the best option would save Product Reviews readers a little time considering there’s not a lot of app choice.
The only real option for watching a live NBA playoffs stream on iPad and iPhone is the NBA Game Time app, which requires an NBA League Pass. You will be able to keep updated on the scores, stats, news, and more thanks to timely updates and a live iPhone/iPad stream.
You can see the entire NBA playoffs live on iPad and iPhone if you pay the $16.99 fee required, and this is a better deal than some of you might think thanks to the original pricing being over $50. The price dropped because you would now be classed as a late comer, although you can get the service for free over the next two days thanks to a free trial currently being offered, so it could cost you nothing if you don’t stick.
It is also worth noting that the NBA League Pass will work on 4G LTE, 3G, and Wi-Fi connections although when mobile the live stream quality will obviously depend on your location and signal. Another tip would be related to data pricing with cellular networks, and if you don’t have an unlimited data plan, then this could end up being a costly app if users leave it running too long. Streaming the NBA playoffs live on iPhone or iPad can use a lot of data when not on a Wi-Fi network.
Those of you with a subscription to Comcast, Verizon FiOS, Time Warner Cable, Google Fiber, or Dish Network might want to download the free WatchESPN app for an easy way to stream NBA games. Of course, you are already paying for the service via your cable subscription.
Do you know any better apps for watching the NBA playoffs live on iPad, iPhone, or even Android?
