With their new NBA League Pass Mobile (US$39.99 per year) app, “The National Basketball Association will give its digital offering the full court press, introducing complete live games on mobile phones, including Apple Inc’s iPhone,” Ben Klayman reports for Reuters.
“The NBA package allows fans to watch more than 40 live games each week.
