Enjoying the basketball season?   So are we, but we'll enjoy it even more with the new NBA League Pass Widget available in all markets on FiOS TV.  

This is the latest sports widget available with FiOS TV's Widget Bazaar.  Click the NBA League Pass Widget and get easy access to NBA player news, scores, stats, conference standings and team rosters.  It's a lot like our popular RedZone Widget for football fans. 

Subscribe to the NBA League Pass and the Widget also lets you set onscreen alerts for up to 10 teams with four different alert options: Start of Game, End of Quarter, Two minutes to End of Game, or Start of Overtime. Once the alert pops up, punch the remote to switch to the game.

And for our HD Extreme customers, FiOS TV offers NBA TV, the NBA's 24-hour network offering games, breaking news and everything else basketball.

You won't get all this with cable.

Let us know how you like the new NBA League Pass Widget - as always, we love hearing from you.

Given how popular our sports Widgets are with customers, we're always looking for ways to expand our sports offerings.  So stay tuned.

So when should we expect a subscription fee on these widgets?  Why is it that all the HD channels which are being added come with an extra fee attached?  AMCHD is extra?  FuseHD is extra?  Cmon  The least you can do is offer the NHL channel until MSGHD is available.  I left cable due to the hidden fees and it seems it went from bad to worse
