If they have a subscription with the right carrier, fans in Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, South Africa, Spain and the U.K. will no longer need to use a credit card to pay for their NBA League Pass. The National Basketball Association has signed a multi-year deal with PM Connect to enable fans to subscribe to its game service through direct carrier billing (DCB). The League Pass streams games live and on-demand throughout the basketball season and provides player and team statistics, various audio channels, multiple camera angles, celebrity commentary and social media connections. PM Connect was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in the English city of Birmingham. It works with 20 mobile network operators (MNOs) in seven countries, reaching about 300 million mobile customers. It currently processes about ten million payments per month internationally for about one billion consumers. With the NBA deal, it will be targeting ads at fans to convert them into paying subscribers for its own payment services. Among the company’s other clients are World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and Eurosport.
