League Pass Problems - Anyone else?

I use League Pass on Roku to watch the games. Lately, the performance has been so poor as to be almost unwatchable.

I get frequent streaming stops with a "Loading" screen. Also it occasionally just kicks out to the home screen.

I've tried different routers and deleting and re-installing the app. No improvement.

FWIW, all my other streaming services on Roku run fine.

Thoughts, anyone?

Not on Roku but I have League Pass thru Amazon Fire TV and ran into an issue a couple of weeks ago where none of the games had sound.  I even double checked to make sure I hadn't muted anything by accident. 

Been having an on again, off again issue sometimes with getting booted out of the telecast & it puts me back on the screen with the "choose your broadcast team".

I hate that the fire tv/stick wont let you ff during playback.

Last year, you could start a game a few minutes late, rewind to the beginning,  and then catch backup.  That doesn't seem to be an option on any of the platforms I've tried this year.

I had the exact same problem last year, except I was streaming through my PS3.  League Pass was unwatchable with constant buffering, freezing, etc.  The thing is everything else I streamed on my PS3 worked fine: Netflix, Prime, etc.   I tried switching from wifi to wired, re-installed the app, nothing helped.  It was a miserable experience.

Then I noticed League Pass worked fine everywhere else but my PS3.  If I streamed on my computer or phone it was fine. 

The only solution I have is to try streaming on a computer, and if that works connect your PC to the TV (if you can).  Personally, I use a steam link to do this, but a laptop with an HDMI output is a simple, easy set up too.

Unfortunately only solution I have.  The NBA is really shooting themselves in the foot here, just a terrible product/service driving a lot of their customers to pirated streams.

That's worth a try.

Hmmm, is that true for all users? I had NBALP the last couple of years, but decided to try something 'different' this year and I've had no issues thus far. With Apple TV (and I assume Chromecast), I just get the game going on my ipad and then mirror to my television. This has been great! The one thing I do miss is if I am late to the game, being able to start from the beginning and ff through the commercials. If that option is gone, then I would never go back.

I should note that one of the reasons I didn't sign up for LP this year was because of streaming issues last year. I was actually forced to occasionally find alternative methods last year in order to watch the game. I found it incredibly lame that I was paying for a service that had so many issues.

This was the first year since 2003 that I didnít buy the LP through my cable provider.

Instead, I bought the single team through nba.com or iTunes or whatever and watch it through Apple TV or sling it from my iPhone/iPad. I was planning on just using the NBA app on my Samsung TV, but they apparently didnít make an app for Samsung this season.

Honestly, havenít had issues with it. I like that it shows some in-arena stuff that broadcast LP just cuts to local commercials. If I watch the game on replay they edit out all of the breaks, which is pretty great that I donít need to do it manually from DVR.

Love that you get home AND away broadcasts of every game.

Only peeves are that you canít put game on after it started and select play from beginning, you have to manually rewind. And if you donít catch up before game ends, you lose the feed for a few minutes until the edited version is ready (usually only a few minutes though), but have to FF to where you were.

I have it via Direct Tv and it works very well.  I liked Streaming when we had it too, but one has to have a good speed for it.

Fixed it.

I went into Roku settings and changed the display value from 1080i to 720p. There is a minor but acceptable loss of picture quality in exchange for much more stable streaming.
