The package will cost current Shaw Direct subscribers an additional $5.06 per month for both high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD) channels.

The channels can also be purchased as part of the HD Sports package which includes twelve other sports stations, such as BTN, TSN and Sportsnet for $7.09 per month.

"As sports fans, we're excited to deliver NBA League Pass, bringing Shaw Direct customers the best in High-Definition basketball and sports entertainment," said Shaw Communications President Peter Bissonnette.
