Hey there I just want to find out why SKY isn't able to broadcast all of the games on its ESPN channels? 

I just got an email last month from TAB that they will be streaming ALL NBA Games via their Website for free. (Your TAB Account must be positive at $1).

Would rather have the ability to watch it on my TV.

Yes this does look like deja-vu...and it's the same response.

ESPN in the US doesn't play all NBA games for US residents...they're not going to play all NBA games on ESPN Australia. SKY has no control over what appears on the ESPN feed we receive.

to be fair to espn australia they do show more games than just the ones broadcast by espn in the US, but then I think sometimes they only show one of the 2 game doubleheaders ESPN on the US does. as jared777 you can't blame sky for the content on espn, but you can blame sky for not having espn 2!

if you want to watch all the nba games on tv you should buy NBA League Pass and an apple tv, PS3 or xbox.

NBA in the US is broadcast over various networks. ESPN, TNT, Fox Sports and even FTA so if it's not on ABC / ESPN I guess Sky will not show it here..

Sommet Sports. An opening for you??

I bit the bullet and signed up to NBA League pass which is just over $20 a month as the quality of the tab feed is fairly poor and also most games are on when I am at work so league pass allows me to watch game later at night.

Did you pay the kiwi price? If so you should try get a refund then sign up again through a VPN with the Indian prices. They're only US$99 for standard or US$139 for the premium.

But he isn't Indian resident. Why should he get the deal that has been done to help Indian Residents?
