NBA TV Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

NBA TV is an American sports-oriented pay television network that is owned by the National Basketball Association (NBA) and operated by Turner Sports. Dedicated to basketball, the network features exhibition, regular season and playoff game broadcasts from the NBA and related professional basketball leagues, as well as NBA-related content including analysis programs, specials and documentaries. The network mainly launched with two purposes; to serve as a barker channel for the league's out-of-market sports package NBA League Pass, along with featuring statistical and scoring information which was more easily accessible in the pre-broadband age, and it featured mainly archival content from the NBA Entertainment archives in its upper pane to fill programming time.

Tieiech says, "When I had [NBA TV] league pass for the short time I subscribed to it, it was fucking dog shit. Don’t know how much it’s changed since, but their selections of games were terrible and not worth 200$ a year when the NBA livestreams reddit is thing."

"The NBA is not a great place to work, Management is disconnected from the workers and it shows, they are not trustworthy sitting in their ivory towers, cut off from the world. The pay is low."

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) says

"other than the perks of traveling and going to games/events, the work culture is terrible. management is terrible and the ability to grow is terrible. wouldn't recommend working there"

Intern (Current Employee) says

"Probably the worst place I have ever worked. The management was very unorganized and my boss was inadequate. I was given project that were not properly executed and none of the events fell through."

Automotive Mechanic (Former Employee) says

"the daily work routines are basic and they didn't have enough work to employ me so ended up being a cleaner there. wouldn't advise going there for any purpose Cons: little pay"

Upper Level Associate (Former Employee) says

"Obtained customer service experience as well as a bit of management experience."

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"Would not recommend. Unprofessional work environment that does not foster personal or professional growth."

TOC Coordinator (Current Employee) says

"this place offers no work life balance. its either work or be replaced. long hours, no benefits and they don't offer long term employment but rather have you train your replacements"

Production Assistant/Video Editor (Former Employee) says

"The people you work with are awesome and talented, but extremely undervalued and their opinions usually ignored. There is no job security or advancement. Upper "leadership" likes to micromanage. Entry level starts at $20/hour and there are some perks, but after a year or two, you may want to try elsewhere. Definitely use the brand name as a stepping stone in your resume and career. Cons: no work/life balance, no growth, micromanagement, lack of leadership"

Sales Associate (Current Employee) says

"some of the managers are cool but most of them are terrible. most of the cool managers left because of the new management and how terrible things were going there."

Senior Specialist (Current Employee) says

"Lots of cool events and get to work on very visible projects. Poor career advancement. Upper management very territorial. Takes a long while to get adjusted to the culture and the reporting structure.. Cons: Work/life balance, treatment, career advancement"

Editor (Current Employee) says

"Trust me when I say this, you will not advance at the company when upper management says you will. You're not paid to the reflection of the work that is given to you, and you're not provided decent healthcare to take care of your family if you're thrown into the "permalance" pool. I worked in Secaucus for a few seasons trying to leave an impression for management of my great work ethic. It doesn't matter what you do, unless you're outside of video production you will stay forever as a freelancer until they get tired of you and replace you - It's extremely cutthroat. They had me and a few other employees running food for other departments. Who knew you were disregarded as an employee by your own department as if you were a nobody. You work for the name, and your love of the game. But in doing so you're just a cog in a well-oiled machine as they exhaust you to being a milk-cow for their agenda. I'll be honest, if you're employed outside of being family-relative or through a friend of an executive, you will continually serve every year wondering when you will make more money, or when they will cut you which happens frequently. Know your worth, and please know this isn't the most amazing place to work, they take advantage of you until they no longer need you, at least within Digital Media Ops or Original Production. Who wants to work 13-15 years and still not be considered staff or worse yet you put in 13-15 years and you're let go on a whim. Avoid at all costs and stay clear of those two departments because you're expendable. Cons: Horrible management"

Professional Basketball Prospect (Former Employee) says

"This is a challenging job with heavy competition. You must keep yourself in tip top shape mentally and physically to even be given an interview for a possible position. Cons: Long Hours"

Associate (Former Employee) says

"Poorly organized program; no investment in job training or security Cons: Poor leadership, little job training, low salary"

Coordinator (Current Employee) says

"It's a very interesting place to work. However if you're not a director or senior director there is no such thing as advancement. Cons: compensation, workload, unrealistic timeframes"

Maintenance Technician/Transportation Driver (Former Employee) says

"Maintenance of all units, janitorial of all inside hallways and elevator. Drive residents to outings, shopping and other events. Maintain all vehicles with proper paperwork. Fuel and clean all vehicles. Cons: loss of business"

Senior Executive Assistant (Consultant) says

"The best thing is the work/life balance. The onsite events are fantastic."

Stock Associate (Current Employee) says

"First started off as a good job for a young individual use to give plenty of hours when you first start but eventually they give you a min. Of 12 hours a week if that. Cons: Hours, schedule, very little career development"

Back of house Leader (Current Employee) says

"-Every morning i would check my emails, write my line up for the day assign lunches to my assoicates."

Senior Director, Accounting (Current Employee) says

"The company seems to very fun to work at but in reality it is not as fun as it seems. There is a lot of favoritism, and not a lot of opportunity to advance."

Production Assistant/Digital Media Operations (Current Employee) says

"The NBA was a tough culture in production because of lack of job security. The production hours are tough because it's live production so you work the hours of NBA games which go from 7pm at night to around 1:30 in the morning. Cons: lack of job security, rough hours"

JK says

"I had DIRECTV many years ago and one thing that I was happy with them about was their first grade customer support. I moved and later switched to cable. Around 2 months ago I was approached with DIRECTV agent offering special deal for $45/month i will get a DVR and access to most common channels including news. Also getting premium channels for 3 month free of charge, I said okay and the guy stop by install the boxes and left. No contract or paperwork to sign. 2 weeks alter tried to access on-line account and didn't work. When I called customer support I find out the agent has put the wrong email in the file. When I finally logged in I noticed that my bill actually more than twice of what was promised ($85/month). call the customer support and explain the situation and they said there is misunderstanding and they don't have service for $45/moth. I asked to cancel my account (3 weeks after installation) and they informed me that I have to pay $480 for early termination fee. I explained that I was never told about the early termination and I never seen the contract. After almost an hour the agent (Dale) said that they will credit me for $480. So I paid what I owe them for the 3 weeks and ship back all the equipment day after assuming that I am done. What a mistake. 6 weeks alter I received another bill and I called and they said they never waved the early termination fee and send my account to collection after only 20 days. Another example of big corporations taking advantage of average hard working people. Total disgrace."

leaf Klover says

"Terrible and expensive service from beginning to end. After getting connected had to call technicians out at least 4 times becauae it wasn't connected properly. Satellite goes out every time it rains. Internet speed is lowest in my area and constantly kicks you off line. At one point I asked about adding an additional Direct TV box to the house and was told ifnI did it would restart my 2 year contract! I finally cancelled internet and direct TV a day after the billing cycle closed and they are now telling me that they bill a month in advance so I have to have to keep the service for another month, and pay for it, whether I want to or not. Other providers have lower costs, faster internet and no contracts. AT&T is the worst! Do not get caught up in their contracts and viscous plans to keep you locked in."

Jeanie Ayala says

"Got 2 replacement receivers Saturday, one DVR, One regular receiver (neither are Genie minis). Spent almost entire day + Sunday trying to get technical support to help activate. Was on phone Sunday 1hr 45 min and no luck. Tried chat and they said a technician was nearby and would be to my home in 15 minutes to fix. This was 11am. No one came by ever. Weekend people don't speak English as a first language. Today is Monday, spoke to American person for 50 mins, they couldn't fix either. Tech scheduled to come to house tomorrow. No one is trained properly in tech support! It's a fricking joke! Don't waste your time on phone. Just schedule a tech to come over. UGH!!!"

John Friederichs says

"A week ago, my local channels disappeared. We called the "help" line. The best they could do was tell us "Unplug it and plug it back in". When I told them that transponders 1 through 22 on satellite 119 were N/A (not accessible) the person on the phone had no idea what I was talking about. "What is transponder? Reboot again...""
