Switch between Home and Away video feeds

On YouTube TV on a web browser or mobile device, go to the NBA League Pass page and select the down arrow next to the game. On your TV, select More to choose your home or away game commentary options.

On the YouTube Primetime Channel, on a smart TV or streaming device, like Chromecast or Fire TV Stick, you can switch between Home and Away games on YouTube by selecting the Broadcasts icon directly on the Watch Page (located beside the “playlist” button).
