Blazers announce live streaming package
The Portland Trail Blazers announced today that they are going to have a live streaming package for 58 games that will cost $99.99.
Ben Golliver at Blazersedge.com had the scoop a few days ago but the team released the official details of the service today.
Here is the full release from the team:
The Portland Trail Blazers will again offer live streaming of games broadcasted on Comcast SportsNet within NBA-approved territory where the network is currently unavailable. Access to streaming will begin Friday, Nov. 8 as the team hosts the Sacramento Kings. The 58-game package is available for $99.99.
“As an organization, we want to ensure that Trail Blazers fans throughout the region have the ability to access our game broadcasts,” said Chris McGowan, President & CEO of the Trail Blazers and Moda Center. “One step toward accomplishing that is through live streaming in areas that have no other viewing option.”
Portland has a history of providing online access to game broadcasts. The Trail Blazers became the first NBA franchise to begin streaming its games, dating back to the 2009-2010 season. Since then, the team has provided a streaming option every season.
Fans that live in areas where CSN is not available can order the 58-game package by visiting trailblazerslive.neulion.com. The Trail Blazers partnered with NeuLion, Inc. (TSX: NLN) to provide the streaming platform.
