Hello, first of all let me start by saying I love U-Verse!
I live in Kenosha, WI and I have the U300 package. I was very excited to finally be able to watch the Bulls play. When I turned on Comcast Sports Net I was greeted by the blackout screen I had grown accustomed to wtih my old cable company. After further research I realize that the NBA has their Blackout Policies and it is probably out of AT&T's control. However, I was just wondering if there is ANY WAY I can gain access to watch the Bulls games, I AM WILLING TO PAY EXTRA within reason. Thank you very much for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The only option is if you are out of a teams viewing area is to purchase NBA League Pass.

Just the ones in your local area, those you should watch on your local channel(s), League Pass is a way for the NBA to make more money by selling out of area games across the country. Same with NFL Sunday Ticket (DirectTV Exclusive), NHL Center Ice, MLB Extra Innings, and MLS Center Kick.

That would explain it as well. It's hard these days to keep up with which station NBA games are on. TBS, TNT, ESPN, NBA, FoxSport, TW, YES......
For those that are interested. Here is the NBA Broadcast schedule for the remainder of the year. This will let you know if your team is on something other than your local channel.

I have nba league pass but can't activate the service on my iPad or iPhone. I did it last year but can't remember how. I seem to think I had to send them copy of my Uverse bill. Can anyone help? Thanks

Blackout policies across every sport are idiotic and old plans done to simply give the owners a few more bucks in their pocket.
With today's game in all sports being on HDTV and whatnot, they know want to enforce blackout rules as much as possible to force people to attend the local games rather than actually MAKING the games worth coming to.
I live in NOLA and love attending Saints/Hornets games. It makes me laugh when I see owners and friends complaining about how they need the blackout rules to help them out. Right.
