If you love your hometown team, but live in a different state, you either have to miss a lot of games or pay $199 per season for the NBA's League Pass. But that gives you EVERY game - way more than you'll ever watch - and you need cable or satellite to get it.

Now there's another option out there for those who don't want to shovel over a fortune to watch a few games every season. The NBA just announced that it will be selling individual, out-of-market game passes for $6.99.

Not only can you stream these games to your TV through your cable or satellite provider, but now you can also stream the live game feed to your smartphone, tablet or desktop. If you don't want to worry about subscribing to every individual game, you can purchase a different game plan.

With the second option, you can buy an NBA League Pass that includes all out-of-market games for whatever team you want. This plan costs $119, which is $80 cheaper than the original plan.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver and league executives came up with these streaming offers to help bring basketball to the masses. Paying $200 a season to watch only some games seemed excessive and they realized it.

Do you think you'll be subscribing to the NBA League Pass now that there are several options to choose from or are you set in your ways? Tell me what you think about this new cable and satellite add-on by commenting below.
