What are the minimum internet service requirements?

An internet connection with the speed of 800 kbps or higher is recommended for NBA Game Time to enjoy viewing it on an ideal quality. If you have an internet connection speed of 3Mbps or higher, you will be able to enjoy the NBA games at its highest video quality.

What video quality are the games viewable in?

NBA Game Time will provide the optimal video quality depending on the current download bandwidth of your Internet connection, up to a maximum of 3Mbps. The video player uses adaptive bandwidth technology to periodically check your internet connection and deliver you the optimal video quality experience for that connection.

If the available bandwidth changes as you watch a game, the picture quality will change, too.

Will the viewing quality decrease if I use other applications?

Applications which consume significant bandwidth, such as file sharing applications (e.g. emule, torrent apps), may compete with video streamed on NBA Game Time and thus reduce video quality. It is recommended to close these applications while watching videos on NBA Game Time or limit their bandwidth usage. Downloading large files or using real-time applications, such as VoIP, may reduce video quality as well.
