Watch your favorite basketball teams on Xbox 360 with the NBA Game Time app
Continuing the trend of turning your Xbox 360 into a full-blown entertainment device, Microsoft has officially released the NBA Game Time app. Now available on Xbox LIVE as of yesterday, NBA Game Time allows you to watch your favorite NBA teams (blackout restrictions may apply) right from the Xbox, provided you have an NBA.com League Pass Broadband subscription.
If you have the League Pass and an Xbox LIVE Gold Membership then you are now able to watch live NBA games, check up on highlights, and see all of the replays in glorious HD. You can even watch a condensed game recap in less than 10 minutes. Other features include:
- My Teams — Obsess over your favorite team and get up-to-the-minute stats on your favorite players. With NBA Game Time on Xbox 360, getting to the details is quick and easy. And to make sure you are in the know, add 4 other teams to follow.
- Stats & Standings — Want to know what’s going on around the league? With Stats & Standings, find out which team is leading a conference or which players top the leaderboards in PPG, RPG, and more.
- Scores & Schedules — NBA Game Time on Xbox 360 gives you quick access to the scores you want and the schedules you need – right on your big screen. Feel free to turn those scores off too – so you can catch up on your game a little late, without the spoilers.
- Mini Guide — The mini-guide gives you a quick preview of all of today’s games right at the bottom of your screen, and makes it easier than ever to switch between games.
- Split Screen — Watch two games at once, or watch a live game on one screen while you catch up with highlights or a replay on the other.
- Voice and Gesture Control with Kinect for Xbox 360 — Focus on the court instead of looking for the remote. Navigate through the games, skip to the next quarter, or play, pause, and rewind that buzzer beater…all with the sound of your voice or the wave of your hand.
NBA Game Time is only offered in the U.S. as of yesterday. Microsoft said it will become available in all Xbox LIVE countries "shortly".
With all that being said, Go Heat!
