    Does everyone have access to the games online?

    Because of NBA streaming requirements, the Trail Blazers are only allowed to stream the games within our League Approved territory, which includes select zip codes in Oregon and Washington. For a complete coverage map and to find out if your zip code is eligible, click here. Fans outside of the 150-mile broadcast radius that cannot get Comcast or Trail Blazers streaming should have online access to all Trail Blazers games via NBA League Pass Broadband.


    Will the games be archived so I can watch them on demand?

    No. Unfortunately, the NBA has not yet approved teams to offer video on demand services.


    Can I watch the game on my mobile phone?

    No. A mobile app is under development, but is not available at this time.


    How will watching online be any different than watching the TV broadcast?

    1) The opportunity to stream online opens up many new opportunities to present the game and the conversation around the game. The Webcast will feature a simulcast of the television broadcast, augmented by real-time stats, live blog commentary, fan feedback and more.

    2) The stream allows you to take the broadcast with you, to work, to the airport gate or anywhere else you may not have access to a television.


    Can more than one person watch with my login?

    No, this is what's known as a single seat license. When purchasing an account, only one person can watch the stream at a time using that purchased login.
