Earlier this week a few Amazon Fire TV owners suddenly had a popup offer from Amazon Prime Channels for NBA League Pass. This was tweeted by Twitter user @gmyrick an Amazon employee, and the official Amazon Fire TV Twitter account even liked the tweet.

For now, it seems to be in testing as the list price is just $0.99 a year a price that likely won’t hold. Typically the service costs $28.99 a month and $199.99 a year. Don’t look for any discount here Amazon Channels is more about making it easy to manage multiple subscriptions than it is about saving money.
Recently NBA League Pass has been rolling out as an add-on to multiple services including Sling TV and B/R Sports. A natural next step would be services like Amazon Prime Video Channels.
So what is NBA League Pass? NBA League Pass offers fans nearly 1,000 live out-of-market regular-season NBA games in addition to those separately available on TNT, ABC, ESPN, NBA TV, local, regional sports networks and local broadcast networks. NBA League Pass is available on Sling TV on a monthly subscription basis. Customers who subscribe to NBA League Pass will also receive linear access to NBA TV.
