If you are signing up for DIRECTV NBA League Pass, then you need to be aware that there is the possibility of some games being blocked out.
Blackouts will take place when a team is playing at home. So if you are a fan of the Miami Heat, live in the Miami area and they are playing at home, then this game will be blacked out on League Pass. To see this game, you will have to tune into the local station that carries the game.
Locally televised games are not the only thing that will be blacked out. You can expect all the nationally televised games to get the dark screen treatment. Any game that is broadcast on ABC, ESPN, NBA TV or TNT will not be available on NBA League Pass. You will have to switch to those channels to see that basketball game.
