Your Minnesota Lynx aren't scheduled to be on television. Maybe you'll be up at your cabin with no access to a television that was made after 1974. Or maybe your dog chewed up your homework.
Wait, that one doesn't really fit here. Regardless, I hope none of these things happen, but things could be worse. These are all reasons for one to purchase WNBA LiveAccess. In fact, last Saturday when the Lynx traveled to play the Washington Mystics, I was up at my cabin losing to my little sister in bean bags. When 6:00 p.m. rolled around, I hooked up my laptop and streamed the game for my family to watch. It was as simple as that.
LiveAccess offers 190 live games, complemented by more than 70 games that will be on ESPN2, ABC and NBA TV. Games airing on ESPN2 and ABC, as well as other games taking place during the telecast windows are subject to live blackout rules.
Local blackouts may apply for each WNBA market depending on the local TV schedule.
One of the best things about LiveAccess is that it provides a live game DVR that enables fans to pause and rewind game action as well as timeline feature that can replay a Lindsay Whalen behind-the-back pass. It's available on smartphones, tablets and computers.
The 2013 version of LiveAccess offers more games in HD as well as enhances integration of stats.
If you want to purchase LiveAccess, head to WNBA.com/LiveAccess. In order to purchase it on a smartphone or tablet, one must first download the WNBA Center Court app, which is a free application that helps fans view highlights, schedules, scores, stats and keeps them up with the latest news.
The price for the package is $14.99, which over the stretch of the season is a bargain, my friends.
