NBA League Pass added to Amazon Prime Video channels

Amazon has added its first live-sports subscription service to its Prime Video channels by making the NBA League Pass package available to viewers in the United States.

Prime members can subscribe to NBA League Pass – which provides access to hundreds of regular-season out-of-market games – for $28.99 per month or $169 for a full-season pass. A free trial is available to Prime subscribers until December 20.

Subscribers who stream NBA League Pass on Fire TV devices will be able to get statistics and other player information using Prime’s X-Ray feature.

The move represents Amazon’s continued push into sports following a deal to stream NFL Thursday Night Football. The e-commerce giant is reportedly interested in purchasing the 22 former Fox Regional Sports Networks as well.
