I am entirely too lazy to go to his much trouble to save 5 bucks. Yet last season I waited til the cost went down before subscribing and I also drive extra miles to save half a buck on an item in a store. lol. Oh the irrationality of it all.

After responding to my first two emails in two days, it has been a week since I specified I wasn't a STH. It seems clear they screwed up when they offered a non-STH the discount. The only question is whether they honor the discount or, once they realized I wasn't an STH, they ceased to care.

I'll let you know when I hear anything.


I got the email that only STH s get the discount and that the discount is provided by the teams

They said that they would renew on the 7th of May. Nothing has happened yet. Anyone?

Congrats, JIT, with that common sense economic philosophy about your money, you're half way to being a conservative. Now, all you have to do is have the same economic philosophy about other people's money. Voila! Complete!

Actually, you're all a bunch of cheapskates, and since life is literally short, I'm going out to buy a Mercedes. So I can drive in comfort to the Westchester County Center to watch the Liberty's starting lineup of Charles, Stokes, Hartley, Nurse and Faris in person.

Mine too. $16.99 on my credit card. But Glenn is right - life is short, I'm going to live it up and enjoy my games on League Pass and my TV all from the comfort of my basement.

I didn't have my opt out box checked yet mine has not been renewed and when I am logged in it doesn't give me the option to do so. Something is rotten in Denmark.

Mine says that too. I wonder if it is just because there are no games available. Hopefully they will get it up and running by the time the season starts.

I got an e-mail on April 27th, which I didn't bother reading until now because I forget to check my e-mail, from the Lynx with a code too, and it also said if I had league pass last year, I would be automatically renewed at the member price, which must've explained me getting the "Loyal Fan" discount that some didn't believe at first. Very Happy

It is a nice gesture for teams to give a league pass discount to season ticket holders. However, there are many of us who do not have a team in our city and therefore cannot buy season tickets. It would be nice if we could get a discount as well. Just saying.

Actually last week I emailed my ticket rep and asked her, and she said next week they would be sending emails out about it. Maybe you could email your ticket rep?

I'm still waiting to find out what I will be paying for this year's league pass. I was actually charged more than $16.99 initially (I guess that is the benefit of being a Loyal fan.) When I asked about the charge I got a prompt response that said the charge above $16.99 would be cancelled and that I would be getting a discount, but it is still not clear what I will eventually be charged.

Oh well, the season starts Friday and whatever I am paying for it, I'm looking forward to watching Dallas and Phoenix.

Will league pass show ALL the games or only the ones listed? Last year I believe they showed all the games reguardless of where they were being shown. Some games are listed as being shown on Twitter, as they where last year but I thought they were also shown on league pass.

Yeah, from what I remember you got the Twitter games on League Pass. The only ones you won't get are games blacked out for your local area (which doesn't always work perfectly), games on ESPN, or games that clash in part or in full with ESPN games (that doesn't always work exactly right either). Those games should be available via archive relatively soon after they're finished, and hopefully will only be blocked in the US, if the region blocking works as well as it did last year.

Got an email today saying I can get a free trial of all League Pass games until May 24, after which your credit card gets charged $16.99 on May 25.

How useful is that if you already know that you want League Pass for the whole season? Are you excited about this offer? I’d rather go with the discount code. I think you have to jump through hoops to get both the free trial and discount.

I got an email today with a bunch of discount codes for League Pass but no explanation. I already paid, so I guess I can't use them anyway. I don't mind. I'm supporting the WNBA and everything they support as well. (I try to do at least one good deed every ten years or so.)

I will be happy to sell the promo codes for $10 each. Just send me a PM for my address and then send me some small unmarked bills.

The free trial is obviously a potential value to someone who has never tried League Pass and who is interested in a week of free trial to see how well it works, which can be cancelled before the charge starts. Some streaming services are lousy and people don't want to pay for them before they can try them.

If one KNOWS they are going to subscribe anyway, then the free trial has no real monetary value. I had no discount code that worked.

I think she was trying to say no games were blocked for her, unlike for us in the USA.

Guess I should have looked at this thread earlier. I missed out on the 5 bucks. No stunner that I did not receive an email from the Liberty about it.

Just to finish the saga I got my charge for the year adjusted down to $11.99, only 3 days after the start of the season. It took only 4 emails since I started this thread 6 weeks ago. And no, the trouble was not worth the $5.

Overall I believe the WNBA was more responsive to problems than they have been in the past so that is a positive. But I also believe this was an unforced error on their part, started by sending out an email to STH with a discount that didn't mention that was the basis for the discount. Then, having offered the discount, they didn't follow through. Only after I was actually overcharged did I get the discount. So I will give the WNBA credit for improving their customer service while still believing they have a way to go.


Now I can enjoy the season.

Very frustrated with league pass. The chromecast doesn't work, and the Mystics game tonight is blocked! Evil or Very Mad


I am able to watch it on the ESPN app. I don't have cable so I guess they are airing it free.

Same. My Chromecast only casts from my phone. Which is good, because the game doesn't even load from my tablet.

I think you can create a login without a cable account. I get score notices from my app without being able to watch games. You can also use their game tracker.

Suggests their region-checking system is working the same as last season - I got both games as normal on League Pass. So if you move outside the US you'd be fine Wink.

I'm on the West Coast and could not get the Mystics - Fever game on League Pass Shocked so went to Watch ESPN and that worked fine. They didn't say it was blacked out, it just didn't let me click on it. WTF.

It is getting kind of absurd - I've been able to watch 2 games live so far on LP - with the rest all being blacked out. Mystics/Fever were blacked out for no reason I could see. ESPN3 didn't like my cable provider ATT (even though it did last year.) So - who do I contact for help? ATT? ESPN? WNBA Live Access?

When a game is on the ESPN channels other games in the same time slot will always be on Watch ESPN instead of League Pass.

To those who have acquired LP, do games get a "trimmed" version treatment once they finish, so they last less than what they did in real time?

I once bought the NBA LP and you could watch games on demand that where around 1:30 hours as they removed the commercials and all the crap from them. Does this work like that also for the WNBA LP or are games like 2+ or 2:30+ hours in duration even after they're played and watching on demand?

Given that I don't have much time to expend I would like to be skipping stuff manually to be honest...

Thanks!

In my experience, some of them do, but not all of them. I've definitely watched at least one game this season where the ads were gone in the archive and you pretty much cut from the commentators sending you to break to them welcoming you back. But it's definitely been inconsistent in the past (I've watched most games live this season so don't have that many archived games to work from).

For what it's worth, if you use the bar at the bottom to skip forwards just over two minutes, that's usually pretty consistent for jumping a timeout/ad-break and bringing you back in just before they start again. Also, WNBA games generally fit in a 2hr window even with the crap left in. It's one of the things I always felt TV companies ought to like about this league.

I don't have the fastest internet ever (Alaska), but I've always been able to watch games in full quality smoothly.

Lately I've had constant stutters and skips when I try to watch. I turned down the quality from "best available" but it still will randomly skip a few seconds ahead. I'll see the start of the play, then suddenly the teams are heading the other way and I have to deduce what happened based on the scoreboard. No fun!

Anyone else experience this lately, and is there a fix?

I had some of that lately, even down at 400Kbps, but I was staying somewhere with pretty crappy internet. Coming home to a better connection, using the same laptop, there've been virtually no issues. So I don't have any good answers for you, I'm afraid. For what it's worth, things other than the speed of your internet connection can affect how well streams work. A better machine, or a cabled connection rather than wifi, or upgrading the firmware on your router, could also be worth a try if they're an option. Kill any programs running in the background on your machine or on other tabs as well, to make sure the processing power isn't being used up.

But in general, if it was working fine before, I don't have any good answers to why it wouldn't be working the same now. Someone else in your house developed a Netflix addiction since last season?

I think Net Neutrality is now ended, so perhaps problems will creep in depending one's service provider.
