I had an issue with using the Uverse website so I went into chat. He couldn't help me so he esculated me to the next level of support. Afterwards I asked that guy if League Pass would be added soon since we just got NBA TV. He told me "Not for this season I can say for sure. After that, we don't know."
So take that for you want.
