LA Clippers Launch ClipperVision, With Six Different Live Streams Available Direct-To-Consumer

ClipperVision will bring 70+ games directly to fans without a pay-TV subscription, with first stream Oct. 22

Streams will include ClipperVision en Español, ClipperVision in Korean, and BallerVision, which will feature live commentary from some of Clipper Nation’s biggest personalities

Los Angeles, CA - In a first for the NBA, the LA Clippers will launch a direct-to-consumer streaming platform, ClipperVision, that will stream more than 70 games live in-market in its first season. ClipperVision brings cutting-edge technology to fans to enhance the live game-watching experience through augmented reality and alternate-language commentary options. It will launch with six different stream options, and additional features are in the plans.

“I have wanted to create a product like ClipperVision since the day I came to the Clippers. Years of effort, hard work and development have led up to its launch,” said Clippers Chairman Steve Ballmer. “ClipperVision’s augmented reality and interactivity will let us transform the experience our fans have watching games, and provide them with more platforms to watch the Clippers.”

Subscribers can stream live games in-market and access a video on demand (VOD) library directly at home, online, on their phone, or on the go from their computer, phone, and other connected devices without a cable subscription. ClipperVision is powered by the NBA’s new integrated digital platform, which also runs the new NBA app.

“The TV landscape is getting increasingly more competitive, oftentimes at the cost of the fan,” said Clippers President of Business Operations Gillian Zucker. “Making ClipperVision available directly to consumers, combined with games on Bally Sports SoCal and free-to-air-TV on KTLA, means that we can put Clippers games back in the hands of our local fans.”

ClipperVision’s six streams will include:

  • BallerVision – BallerVision will feature live commentary from some of Clipper Nation’s biggest and most well-known personalities -- Baron Davis, Paul Pierce, Quentin Richardson, and Matt Barnes -- along with guest appearances from Steve Ballmer and celebrity Clippers fans. 
  • Traditional Clippers Broadcasts – The app will provide access to live game streams from Bally Sports SoCal and KTLA featuring traditional on-air talent and graphics.
  • CourtVision powered by AWS – Fan-favorite augmented reality streams are back. The CourtVison stream, similar to ShotIQ Mode in the Clippers CourtVision Beta, will carry over augmented graphics for real-time shot probability, statistics, and more. 
  • CourtVision Mascot Mode powered by AWS – This stream will feature new and enhanced animations, graphics, and special effects added in real-time with machine learning, an expansion of the similar mode from Clippers CourtVision.
  • ClipperVision in Korean – The Korean-language stream on ClipperVision will be the first Korean-language commentary available OTT in the L.A. market, and it will be called live from Korea by commentator Yong-Gum Jeong, former basketball player and Korean Basketball League champion Tae-Sool Kim, and basketball reporters Hyun-Il Cho and Dae-Bum Son
  • ClipperVision en Español – The Spanish-language stream will be hosted by veteran broadcaster Francisco X. Rivera. Experienced analyst Roger Valdivieso will take the commentator chair along with an extensive list of invited guests. ClipperVision en Español is the first team direct-to-consumer platform produced specifically for a Spanish-speaking audience.

ClipperVision expands from the Clippers CourtVision Beta, which was introduced in 2018 as the very first live, augmented sports broadcast available and won numerous awards for its innovation. 

The ClipperVision direct-to-consumer streaming platform, combined with the team’s other broadcast offerings, gives fans of all ages and viewing habits convenient, easy ways to watch games. Fans in market can also watch games on the Clippers’ longtime linear TV home Bally Sports SoCal and on free-to-air TV on KTLA 5.

For the entire season, ClipperVision is available for $199.99, and subscribers in the 2022-2023 season will receive a free limited-edition LA Clippers-branded jacket and regular season access to Bally Sports+ courtesy of the Clippers. Fans can sign up now at www.clippers.com/clippervision
