  • LISTEN version doesn’t work

    By Javajunco
    **Update** The Audio only version has been fixed, and we are able to listen to all the games. We love the app, and appreciate the developer’s response. The only issue we have now is volume control - sometimes the actual broadcast is very very quiet, so we turn the volume all the way up, but the commercials come on and are on blast. Otherwise we are very happy. We purchased the Audio only version, we were excited to listen to opening night games. The app says we are “listening” but there is no sound. I decided to leave it on in case there was a long loading time, and then forgot about it. The audio came on suddenly and lasted for about 15 seconds, and then went back off. Came on for another 10 seconds about 20 minutes later. We were disappointed pointed to miss opening night play. Hoping this gets fixed soon! We actually purchased the Audio League pass on 2 devices, and it didn’t work on either of them.
  • Notifications don't work.

    By Khoi reader
    Got this app to be reminded when NBA games starts. Notifications don't work even though it has a notification feature.
  • Poor fire stick/ps4 app

    By imperialparkay
    Very poor programming/stability. The App crashes on the fire stick. It crashes on the PS4. It’s really only stable when I stream on my phone, which is sad because I pay for the NBA League Pass so I expect a MUCH better streaming experience. My internet connection is great. Every other app streams perfectly. In previous years I purchased League Pass through my cable provider so I could just tune to the corresponding channel. However, I no longer have a cable provider so I’m stuck with the App. I likely will not subscribe next season.
  • Terrible Sports App

    By Tigers
    1) Where is the opening for the Detroit Pistons games???? 2) Where is the after game sports analysis for the Detroit Pistons? 3) This is bad, bad and terrible I have to go to YouTube to see the Opening for Detroit Pistons games. 4) I have NBA App for Apple TV and the app crushes all the time during games. 5) I have the NHL App for Apple TV for the Detroit Red Wings and the NHL does not crush during games. 6) Thank you NBA for making it where I was not able to vote today for NBA All Stars. I live in Oregon and there seems to problems on the app for voting. 7) There are no TV local games for the Portland Trailblazers on anymore and Thank you NBA for that terrible decision. Terrible NBA App
  • Classic games

    By Kdgaming4
    A while ago I asked if you could add more classic games and you never did. So I want to know if you could add a new one every week.
  • Random Spam Ads

    By Quelle03
    I keep getting random spam pop ups when using some of the additional features in this app. When I click on more and go to check team win totals, or most of the fantasy options, not all the time, but often enough for it to be a point of pain, I get a spam pop up telling me I've won $1000 from Walmart or some other place and I must claim my prize. Does the NBA validate these ads?
  • Amazing

  • Can’t watch my favorite team

    By Ho Lee Crap
    When I go to watch my favorite team on the nba app, it says it’s blacked out because of where I live, so I need to watch it on the local channel. But my tv can’t get the channel because of where I live. This means that unless my favorite team goes onto ESPN or one of those channels, I can’t watch my favorite team.
  • Don’t buy on iPhone
