Please tell me exactly what steps I need to take to guarantee I can watch live NBA games on roku?
You will need a subscription to the NBA League Pass package (http://www.nba.com/leaguepass/
) and the Roku NBA GameTime or GameTime lite channel from the channel store (not there yet). Check the blackout restrictions on League Pass, many games blacked out live.
Based on past experience with the various sports packages on Roku those channels should be in the channel store shortly before or the day the regular season begins on 12/25. first regular season games on League Pass are 12/26 (all 12/25 games on networks and blacked out live but should be available after as archived games).
Glad to see other hoopsters on the board.
