NBA Playoff – Son’s BBall Blog – Apple TV/NBA League Pass Rant

For those who knows me and my family, they know that me and my eldest kid are both basketball freaks.  My kid even have his own basketball blog, High School Basketball Nerd.  Check it out if you have time.

With the NBA playoffs underway and my Celtics through to the second round with their sweep over the New York Knicks, think I’ll just bable a bit over bball here.

Got my Apple TV (2nd generation) couple months back shortly after knowing that it would support airplay over WiFi from my iOS devices to the Apple TV and with MLB.TV and NBA Game Time added as streaming content options with the Apple TV Software Update 4.2, I thought I was all set for NBA postseason and Baseball Opening Day.

Turns out, up till today, not a whole lot of iOS apps supports airplay, although MLB.TV works fine on the Apple TV, NBA Game Time doesn’t work outside of U.S. with the NBA international league pass.  According to NBA.com, “at this time NBA International League Pass does not have an Apple TV application. Future support for the Apple TV and other connected devices is in the works, but we do not have a timeline for release just yet.” Bumming…major bumming… have to stick with watching live games on my Mac or NBA TV on my cable network.
