For anybody thats interested New Zealand has finally been added to the list of countries that can purchase and stream live NBA games on http://ilp.nba.com, starting with the playoffs.

Have used for a couple of days and quality is better then acceptable!

Hi stagnant16,
Great news been waiting a while for it to become available.
 Just wondering what broadband plan you are on. Just signed up to the monthly plan but the buffering is terrible for me.
Tried a speed test to the Sydney server they suggested to try and and got back 14.05 mbps which they think should be fine.
Thinking maybe my Go Large plan is not cutting it and need to upgrade

Did you sign up for the HD ticket or the regular. I only took the regular, my connection sucks 2mb down at the best of times. I know there has been a few complaints about the buffering on myp2p forums (there are a few trouble shooting techniques there as well), but I've had relativly few buffering probs.

I used to sign up for the US version and that was a helluva lot more stable.


Now its just a shame the mavs are getting smashed ;-(

I went for the regular monthly plan. After going back and forth with the live help at league pass and still having the same problems, i decided to change to the full speed adventure plan and everything came right.

If the Hornets had not sucked so much, i would have extended it!

So thanks for the heads up, i will definitely look into getting it again next season

Nice to see some NBA fans here!

I tried the HD test and it runs sweet for a few minutes before the picture smudges and breaks up for a few seconds and then goes back to normal. Is this purely because of the bandwidth or is it my video card? I'm using an HP DV5 1004AX laptop via a wireless router. Im on an FS/FS plan
