NBA Annual League Pass 2019-2020 Season L1200 (~$71 AUD) @ NBA.com (VPN Req.)

2210

The NBA Season is starting soon and this is the cheapest option that I can find. It comes to 1200 Honduran Lempira or US 49.99. These are the 2 currency that you can choose from to pay (that comes to AU $71.00 using XE Currency Converter) . The only paying option is by Credit Card.

You only need to use a VPN with an Honduras IP Address while you signing up to get this deal but NO VPN is needed to watch the games afterwards.

The VPN that you can use is free. It is called Urban Free VPN proxy Unblocker - Google Chrome extension

But you can use any VPN that you like that has Honduras on it's Servers list.

In last year favorite NBA League Pass VPN destination Argentina the price has gone up to 3900 Argentine Pesos or US $89.99 (that comes to AU $101.00 using XE Currency Converter)


Update:

For anyone that has trouble with their VPN finding Hoduras can download this free Speedify VPN or any other VPN and choose South Africa as their destination

        Thanks for this but why didn't you just use South Africa with Urban Free VPN?

  •  

    Thanks I downloaded NordVPN on the 7 day trial on my phone. Usedthe South Africa VPN andgot it for AUD$74.07. Thanks for the info and post everyone! The only downer is now I can’t cancel NordVPN. On the online chat now trying to get rid of it

    •  

      I just looked at my bank account. I'm with ING. The transaction cleared as AUD$74.79- including a rebate for the international transaction fee AUD$1.87. End price with South Africa VPN AUD$72.92

    Cheers! Got it via South African VPN for $74.07!

  •  

    Yep thanks for the heads up on south african option guys.. honduras hard to find and i was having 0 luck getting Urban VPN to work.
    Confirm south africa working AOK, logged into NBA account perfectly, subscription active for the 2019/2020 year..
    final cost was $74.07 AUD as mentioned by other posts

    •  

      How did you pay?
      i only get the option for Credit Card (which i actually tried but it failed) and Skrill (which i cant seem to deposit into)

      •  

        Credit Card. I have a travel rewards card so 0% fees for international transactions. Went through AOK, showed up on my card straight away. during the transaction it triggered a pop up screen to enter confirmation code that ANZ sent me to make sure it wasnt a "dodgy" purchase. So i guess your card doesnt allow for that south african transaction. Bank might be blocking it unfortunately???

      •  

        If you still can't buy this, sign up for Up.com.au . They're an Australian neobank that doesn't charge any international transaction fees on their Visa card. Ozbargain`s referral system will allow you earn an extra $5 for opening the account by clicking the shuffle button on this (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/deals/up.com.au) page or by PMing me.

    Trying to use South Africa vpn but it shows the price as $199, don't even know if that's USD or what, are you suppose to see the price in that countries local currency? Even if I try India it still shows the price as $199. When I try without VPN in Australia it will revert back to $299.99

      I just tried it with Speedify VPN and it works.

      1. Clear your browsing data and close your web browser.
      2. Open Speedify VPN if that is the VPN are you going to use choose South Africa as your destination and wait until it's connected
      3. Reopen your web browser
      4. Search for NBA League Pass

      The price that comes up is R739.99 (South African Rand) or US $49.99

        Mate i both tried Speedify and Urban Vpn however i always get stucked on step 3 after payment. No confirmation and cc transaction recorded on my nba/cc account. Any other way? Thanks

          Connect to a vpn then open an incognito browser usually works.

          •  

            @westzod: Yep i was already on south africa site however that step 3 on league pass site is causing the trouble. Like i get stucked to step 3 and won't confirm.

    I accessed League Pass with an Indian VPN and it says it's 999.00 rupees for the year ($20 AUD). "Your NBA League Pass service will be available for use in India only"

    I didn't have any issues it with last season and didn't even need a VPN to log in.

    Can someone advise? Thanks.

  •  

    Do I need a VPN to watch games if I sign up with Honduras? I didn't need a VPN last season with India.

    •  

      It says in the title

      You only need to use a VPN with an Honduras IP Address while you signing up to get this deal but NO VPN is needed to watch the games afterwards.

    Has anyone tried Youtube TV with the NBA add-on? It's a fair bit more expensive (and US only so VPN needed), but apparently it does 1080 @ 60fps.

    I've had NBA LP for a few years, but the fact that they're still stuck on 720 is pretty frustrating.

    SurfShark VPN won't work for the signup process, it will work on the mobile app after signing up using the expressVPN trial.
    I signed up to India and chose monthly which can be cancelled at any time. Cost me AU$2.10 a month.

      thought other guys have said signing up with India you HAVE to use a VPN through india to watch the games.. which is a pain.. but if it works for you thats great!

    Is league pass picky with what credit cards are being used?

    Any tips? Thanks!

    Can confirm this works. $38.71 for Team Choice. Also jumped on my ATV4, and confirmed it worked on there.

    Download Speedify, and use the free service. Change location to Sth Africa. Then open a new browser and go to the NBA site. Change currency to USD, and choose the package that you want (I went Team choice). Then go through the motions of checking out. Once you get to payment screen, wait a few seconds, and then PayPal should appear, then use PayPal. All done

    Hi Guys
    So i assume we are stuck with 720p stream? pretty pathetic cant stream 1080p through nba app/website..
    720p looks average on a 65"+ tv.. get with the times NBA..

    •  

      I know that if you watch the game live they have 1080p but if you watch the replay the highest resolution that you can choose is 720HD

    •  

      A lot of the preseason games are available in 1080p now.

    Hi,

    I used the speedify/south africa option to update my current league pass account with paypal..

    my account is still showing i'm subscribed to the 18-19 season but not updated to 19-20.. the account does show a payment for US$49.99 for league pass..

    will this update once my current subscription expires or should i have waited until the old subscription expired before making payment with this method??

    cheers

      Not sure but have a read through the comments. This is what was said by one of the members regarding that:

      nuguns17 on 17/09/2019 - 20:47
      @mitch21: So i had a chat with the NBA customer service.
      If you're using the same account as last season to purchase this one. (Even though you cancel subscription your account is still active until 1st November 2019, as a result you cant purchase any new subs until it goes inactive).

      That's why you're getting the payment errors.
      If your card/paypal confirmation shows you already paid, i was told it would return back to you 1-3 business days.

      "There are no new purchases on the account as you already have an active subscription. Any previous attempt had failed. Once your subscription becomes inactive as of November 1 you are able to make a purchase, so you still have a month and a half of access to League Pass at this time. Any failed attempt may show as a pending charge or authorization hold that would be released by your bank in 1-3 business days. As you can see below any attempt made on September 16 for a new subscription purchase had failed in our system"

    Managed to get it via the free Urban Free VPN, I've used South Africa and paid USD49.99 = AUD 77.10

  •  

    Hey all, can someone who has paid through paypal check their paypal account and see if you can cancel the re-occuring payment in there?

    •  

      go into your profile then payments/manage auto payments/nba league pass

  •  

    Seems like a lot of the league pass games in the preseason are streaming in 1080p. Anyone know if that is a thing now?

    •  

      I notised that if ou watch it live you can watch it in 1080p but if you're watching the replay the highest resolotion is 720p

      •  

        Seems like now all games are streaming in 720p (6mb) live and replay.

  •  

    Anyone done it recently?

    I've tried using all the VPNs in the OP, as well as NordVPN, but had no luck. It always gives an error.

    Tried clearing browsing data, creating a new account, and using USD (but there's no PayPal option), and each time it errors out.

    Have they closed this?

      Won't even accept my credit card when updating my payment method in my account settings without using the SA VPN. NBA potentially losing actual paying customers by not having another payment option..

  •  

    still no luck for anyone?

    :(

  •  

    On the live chat after the free trial promotion ends we will be able to use PayPal. The rep said it will end in a week

    •  

      Ahh.. so if we provide our AU CC (presumably) for 1 week, we can VPN and get cheaper via PayPal?

  •  

    I think the NBA has cracked down on this. Tried multiple connecting to South Africa from multiple VPNs and was unable to pay via Credit Card (just hangs on the checkout screen), and there's no way of getting the PayPal option to show anymore.

    I went on live chat and the person said PayPal is currently unavailable for use as a payment method. Asked if this was temporary and the only response I got was "Sorry I'm not sure".. very cool

    •  

      The response I got was PayPal payment method is not offered during the 7-day free trial promotion.

      •  

        I just got off livechat again and apparently the 7-day free trial lasts all season, there's no end day for the promotion, but it's 1 per customer.

        This either means PayPal is gone for good, or the custom service reps don't know what they're talking about

          Can we use oz account or site for free trial then cancel after 7days? Then again try the VPN process via S.Africa? Is that worth a try?

          •  

            @Jepte041: That sounds like a good idea actually, going to try now

          •  

            @Jepte041: I just tried that and it doesn't work. It makes you pay the full price when you try and order after cancellation.

  •  

    If paypal has been removed as payment method, cc is getting denied. Any other solutions?

    •  

      I also have struggled to find a way to pay but was able to do it last night with a little bit of persistence.

      What I did was before doing anything I’ve turned the VPN (South Africa server) on, created an NBA League pass account using an email address that has never been associated with NBA before and then I used a prepaid Mastercard from Australia post that also has not been used for an NBA account (as my other cards would not work).

      I was pleasantly surprised it worked. It seems like they keep track of the location of where email ads and credit cards were used. I hope everyone looking for a solution finds one that works for them.

      •  

        What did you choose for Region when you paid? South Africa or Australia? Also, did you choose South African or Australian dollars?

        •  

          Chose USD as currency and Australia for region

  •  

    just signed up with my visa debit card. used speedify africa server and my normal nba account that i've had for a few years. payment starts after 7 days free trial.
    gonna make sure i have $100 dollars in my account before that billing date. currently searching through for that towns and embiid fight :)

    •  

      What did you choose for Region when you paid? South Africa or Australia? Also, did you choose South African or Australian dollars?

      •  

        just used what was already set in my account from last year. it was set to AU. got a NBA League Pass London GBP transaction of -$1.36 pending in my account. nfi why it's GBP. there was only 2 options. for South African dollar or american.

        •  

          GPB is weird. Do you remember if you left it in South African currency (Default) or changed to US Dollars?

  •  

    Had Argentinian LP last year and just realised it never auto renewed. Damn. Now trying to sign up and pay with a new South African account. Can't get payment method to work. To those that have do you choose Australian location for country/region on credit card. Might have to go and buy a prepaid and try that.

    • +1 vote

      Same, so I chatted with NBA they gave me a 20% discount code, I think it is unique but it worked, I just expressvpned to Argentina again and paid using a standard aussie cc, it looked like it didnt work in step 3 cos it didn't properly refresh. But i opened another window to check what my sub status was it and all went through. Email confirmation from nba is all stuffed up too. But happily streaming the games right now. So I can breathe easy again.

      •  

        That's interesting - I got to Step 3 several times yesterday and it also looked like it didn't refresh. However, when I checked my subscription in another window, it never went through. It's almost like a random chance on whether this works or not.

        •  

          Hmm, that does seem odd, so you still unsuccessful? I was super careful with it all cos I read all the comments, knew it was gonna be a little hit & miss. I didn't trust any of my standard mobile devices that has the nba app cos they started offering me aud sub. So I did it all from my pc after clearing history etc. Also cc location was australia despite vpn to argentina and paying 3200ars - hopefully lol! havent checked bill yet and email comfirmation shows 0!. The system is playing up for sure! guy had my 20% discount code and standard process to pay response all ready to go when I told him it didnt auto renew.

          •  

            @bargainmonster: Still no luck. I did try South Africa yesterday, not Argentina. I doubt that would make a difference but who knows at this point.

          •  

            @bargainmonster: What browser did you use on PC (Assuming you use Windows - Chrome, Explorer)?

            •  

              @mickeyk: Sorry for delay, I used Chrome. When step 3 returned a blank, I clicked into another tab to load nba site to check status.

        •  

          Yep get to step 3 goes to completing order then get a blank screen. Still no subscription and don't feel like trying it over and over. Might try contacting customer service.

    •  

      i'm in the same boat

  •  

    tried Aus Post prepaid platinum MC
    didnt work

  •  

    Tried everything mentioned here (except the prepaid CC) and nothing works. Same story, once details are punched in it says processing order but then goes to a blank screen. Unless paypal becomes an option; I'm all out of ideas.

  •  

    Yep having the same issue and no luck. Tried Urban VPN through South Africa and Argentina. May have to wait out the free trial period

  •  

    I used the league pass last year that was posted here and I cancelled it before it auto renewed and it worked up until 31/10. Just now I installed the chrome extension from the OP and connected to South Africa server. I logged into the same account from last year, which already had my card details saved, and it came up to renew for the yearly price for ZAR740. My CBA card was charged with what appears to be a ZAR14 holding fee and it says the remaining fee will be charged at end of the trial week. When I got to page 3 it didn't completely load as others have said, but it all went through and is now working on my phone.

  •  

    I get the error of:
    *** PLEASE NOTE *** There was an error processing payment using the payment option you supplied. If paying by PayPal, please try again at a later time. If paying by credit card, please check that the billing address you entered matches the address on your credit card account or use a different credit card and try again. If you need further help with your purchase, please contact customer support.

    I get the RAND/US price OK, but after entering any of my credit card details I get this message. Any ideas?

  •  

    Ok - this method needs an apple device like iphone/ipad/apple tv

    Create a South African itunes Account
    Select "none" for payment method (as you cannot use an Australian credit card as payment method)
    Buy some South African itunes Gift Cards online (enough for annual subscription)
    load that to your SA itunes account. I loaded enough for the R799 needed for annual subscription.

    Now - on your apple device - sign in to your new South African iTunes account (which has been loaded with some credit)
    Open NBA League Pass on the iDevice
    click subscribe
    It will ask you which plan, but the pricing will be the South African rates, rather than the Aussie rates.
    Proceed to pay.

    I found a workaround on how to avoid a free trial and pay with Paypal.
    Do everything as normal on your PC, but when you get to the payment screen with credit card information, add "&nofreetrial=true" to the URL (for South Africa, full URL was https://watch.nba.com/secure/subscription?sku=BLPP&nofreetri... ).
    Then you will have the paypal option. For me, after I paid with paypal, the screen still didn't indicate that I paid, but when I looked at the account, the subscription was there.

    • +6 votes

      Just to add to my post above, you will have to change currency to US Dollars before getting to the payment screen.

      • +1 vote

        Can confirm this worked! Just additionally, I used my previous account and it still worked. Precise details below:
        1. Cleared internet data
        2. Turned on OP's VPN to South Africa
        3. Navigated to NBA League Pass and logged in (logging in at the package purchase screen took forever for me)
        4. Added the additional code to the end of the URL and PayPal was available
        5. As mentioned above, it doesn't indicate whether the payment has been successful but when logging into my app I was able to watch games

        Enjoy, and thanks to mickeyk!
