NBA: Phoenix Suns at Indiana Pacers Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Are you an NBA League Pass subscriber who’s tiring of watching meaningless second half basketball as your Phoenix Suns sink further and further into the abyss? Well an option that’s friendlier to your pocketbook and your free time may soon be available.

Tuesday the NBA announced that subscribers to International League pass will allow fans outside of the United States to purchase ten minutes of any league game for just 99 cents.

Presently NBA League Pass allows fans to purchase the final quarter of a single game for $1.99. One full game runs $6.99. As of Tuesday the remainder of the 2018-19 will run you $74.99.

The ten minutes is ten minutes of “real time.” You’ll be permitted to bounce back and forth among games, and if a particular game is at the half when you make your purchase then I guess you won’t be watching that game.

The Action Network is saying that the league does have plans to expand this to the United States. Eventually. Depending on how long that takes though, you may not need the 10 minute option. You’re going to want to watch every second of Suns basketball as they assert their dominance in the Western Conference. But it might be nice to have if you bought a Phoenix-only package to start the season.
