This news might be the final motivation I need in terms of me buying an Apple TV. NBA International League pass has quietly appeared alongside MLB in the Sports category on Apple’s device in France (and probably other countries), with League Pass and live score updates available on the small black box, iGeneration reports.
In the past, only those with the US League Pass were able to use it on their Apple TV, however now it’s been confirmed in France, presumably many other international countries will have it as well.
While League Pass does cost $220, it’s definitely worth it considering as you can also access it from your iOS device, and it gives you the best NBA watching experience you can get without actually being at the game for international viewers.
I’m definitely more tempted than ever before now to get an Apple TV, however I already have a Smart TV, so i’ll have to decide if it’s worth it. But for NBA on the big screen, why not?
Are you an international League Pass subscriber with an Apple TV? If so, then tell us if you have it and where you’re from and we’ll update this post.
Update: Luke Colgan has just confirmed that he is now receiving League Pass on his Apple TV in Australia, so that all but confirms that it’s widespread.
