    Hi,

    Going away from Houston this year for school, so I have a question about League Pass.

    I know that I cannot get the Rockets games on ESPN/TNT/NBA TV available on League Pass, and those games are blacked out...

    My question is...are those games available like a couple of hours after they aired on those channels on the League Pass interface? Also, same for the playoffs, will those games be available on demand later?

    I hardly have time to watch games live, so watching the next day doesn't bother me, so it would be helpful of those games were available in some shape or form...

    Yes, Regular Season games that are blacked out are "unlocked" eventually. But I don't think they are until next day. Also, all the previous year is in your Archive as well. I like that feature.

    Playoffs, however, are never available.

    Three days for local games.

    That's directly from the league pass website.

    As long as you are not in Houston and you're not in Dallas when we play the Mav, San Antonio when we play the spurs you should be able to watch the games live. I was in Cali for spring break last year and I watched every game live on my computer, that was the week Beasley went for 30 twice

    While website says 3 days, its really an hour after the game in my experience.

    hmmm. Strange. I don't find that to be true from experience. Regardless, it doesn't apply to OP anyhow. He's asking about blackouts due to Nationally televised games, since he's moving away.

    Well, I have found the 3 day delay for local games to be the case (certainly longer than the 3 hour national delay).

    For the past couple of seasons I was thinking Houston-Dallas games weren't even archived on NBA League Pass for people in Dallas. At least that was the case on the playstation app. I think last year I noticed the PC had archived local games about 24 hours later. But still, it wasn't 3 hours later, that's for sure.

    The OP didn't mention where he was going away for school, so if it's to another NBA city, this is relevant.

    Yes. I use International League Pass with VPN and no games are blacked out.

    Yes. By changing your IP, using the proxy IP to route packets, it will make the LP server think you are somewhere else geographically.

    Be careful with hola.com

    That can open our computer up to just about anyone who wants to get in. Some people have even had their doors kicked in by the feds because a hacker was using their ip for malicious purposes. The best IP services are the ones that you have to pay for.

    Bump.

    Similar question. I just moved to Austin and am considering purchasing League Pass. How quickly are games that are not blacked out usually archived? I'm usually very busy around 7 but would like to watch the games later that night, perhaps around 10pm-12am.

    In cities like Austin with NBA League you're afforded to every available basketball game in America. You could watch both home and away games for all Texas' cities NBA franchises, so basically no zip code broadband blackouts

    Has anyone else been able to order League Pass through ATT U-verse?

    I've had no success, after ordering easily the last few years.

    Actually, Spurs games are blacked out. My question wasn't about black outs though. Games that are not blacked out, i.e. games I could watch live on League Pass, how quickly are they archived? I want to buy League Pass but I would be watching the vast majority of games 1-3 hours after they've ended, and I want to make sure they will be archived by that time.

    RE: Blacked Out Spurs Games in Austin: Yes, League Pass blacked out Spurs games (if you live in Austin).....but you can watch them on Fox Sports Southwest.....Spurs broadcast their games on that channel. I never had to miss a game between Rockets and Spurs last year....just watched it on the Spurs Fox broadcast. Downside is listening to horrible Spurs announcers. As of now, Time Warner/Spectrum is still "negotiating" with NBA regarding League Pass. If League Pass is not available in Austin, I will be switching to Direct TV which has Roots Sports SW.....won't even need League Pass to watch all of the Rockets games.

    I just want to know how fast League Pass archives NON-BLACKED OUT GAMES after they've ended in real-time. Thanks in advance.
