Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 19) — The National Basketball Association announced Thursday it is providing free access to its League Pass platform until April 22.

The announcement came a week after the league decided to suspend its season last March 12 (Manila time) because of the threat of coronavirus disease.

“Limiting social interactions is a critical way to minimize the spread of this virus, but staying home for long periods of time can be difficult. With the 2019-20 NBA season on hiatus, the NBA and Turner Sports are providing all fans with a free preview of NBA League Pass,” the league said in a statement.

The NBA League Pass is the league’s premium subscription-based product where users can watch full length and condensed replays of all its games this season.

Fans can also relive classic moments in the court through its wide archive of games and other content.

Those who wish to avail must create/sign into their NBA account using the League Pass homepage through your web browser or by downloading the NBA App in your smartphone.

Then, use the preview code WATCH30 to enjoy the free League Pass subscription.

The NBA came on a decision to postpone the 2019-20 season after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19. His teammate Donovan Mitchell was also found to be positive of the disease the next day.
