EchoStar Communications Corporation has just signed a multi-year agreement to offer the National Basketball Association's NBA League Pass to DISH Network subscribers. Until November 11, 2002 DISH network customers will receive a free preview of the NBA League Pass which offers up to 40 out-of-market regular season games each week. Anyone who signs up for the service before November 11, 2002 will receive a $20 "early bird" discount off the regular $179 price. DISH Network customers may also subscribe to a half season package from January 13, 2003 through April 16th 2002 for $99.
DISH Network will also carry NBA TV, the league's 24-hour television network, in conjunction with NBA LEAGUE PASS. DISH Network will further expand their carriage of NBA TV when they begin offering live game coverage later during the 2002-03 NBA season. NBA TV will televise live NBA and WNBA regular season and playoff games, real-time statistics, scores, news, highlights and vintage games.
