I sent an email to NBA and they replied with the following
"The applications on mobile, tablet and connected devices will be updated prior to the start of the season. Any new features would be announced then.
As the current app on XBox and AppleTV is from last season, current season subscriptions do not yet have access to all content but will once the app updates it will. Both “Premium” and “Season” level subscribers will have access to subscription content through all supported devices."
So looks like we need to wait for an update if we want to watch last seasons games.
Airplay gets round this for now.
I hope..I hope...because i really would watch the nba games on my apple tv...
because i have bought it for this service...
the email talk about an update...
I hope the update will be for my country Italy too .....where are you from?
last year did you watch nba on apple tv?
How is it?
the quality is good?
The update is for international league pass broadband, so I assume it will be for all countries. I expect they will push this out before the regular season starts, You can AirPlay through an iPad it works fine for now.
No I didn't have Apple TV until a month ago. Quality is spot on for the preseason so far.
still no update in sight that solves the problem. Apple TV 3, newest OS, location: GER.
No date after June 20th shows up and you can't watch the full game, just highlights.
My league pass works fine with browser or iPhone, so that's clearly an Apple TV problem.
Does anyone know when to expect that update? Season starts in 4 days!!!
Already sold two Apple TVs because I had massive problems with streaming (iTunes crashes @W7/W8) and just came back for NBA - looks like an epic fail again...
Got an answer from NBA support:
Thank you for contacting NBA support.
The NBA Game Time app for Apple TV has not been updated for the upcoming season at this time. There will be an update released before the start of the NBA Regular Season.

Well, NBA @ Apple TV is available in my region, already checked that 28 times.
They just aren't able to release an update prior to the start of preseason and really fumble around till season start (which is in 2 days!)...poor performance.
Is is Apple that is blocking the update or neulion who is lazy as ****?
