NBA League Pass arrives on Sling TV as its 2.2M subscribers make it the largest internet-based live TV service

Sling TV has, for the first time, revealed how many subscribers pay for the streaming live TV service. With 2.21 million subscribers, it is, as most probably suspected, the largest internet-based TV provider by a large margin. DirecTV Now is second with 1.2 million subscribers, followed by PlayStation Vue with around half a million. Hulu Live TV and YouTube TV round out the ranking with about 450K and 300K subscribers, respectively.

Being both the first and least expensive internet TV service has certainly helped Sling TV garner nearly twice as many subscribers as its closest competitor. With service starting at $20 per month for 30 channels, it compliments streaming services like Prime Video and Netflix nicely.

Sling TV has now announced that NBA League Pass can be added as an optional extra for $29 per month. With it, you get “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.” For basketball fans who only care about one team, Sling TV will be adding an NBA Team Pass option for $18 per month that lets you watch all out-of-market games for one team only.
