Utah Jazz has now launched Jazz+, a new streaming service that offers Jazz fans access to live games, full-length game replays, exclusive on-demand content, and much more.
One Of the big changes within the sports world this year, has been the launch of direct-to-consumer services. Earlier this week, for example, Vegas Golden Knights launched KnightTime+, its own streaming platform and service.
In June of this year, Utah Jazz first confirmed it was working on its own direct-to-consumer service. Today that service has gone live, with Jazz+ now offering local Jazz fans access to live games, exclusive content, on-demand games, and preseason games.
In terms of the price, Jazz+ offers multiple options. Firstly, there is the option to sign up for a standard subscription at $15.50 a month. Secondly, there’s the option to subscribe to an annual Jazz+ plan at $125.50, which breaks down to less than $1.50 per game.
According to Jazz+, those that sign up to the annual plan before October 24 will also get two upper bowl tickets to one Utah Jazz game at Delta Center during the 2023-24 season as well as a Jazz t-shirt and a Jazz hat.
Thirdly, and for those that prefer more of a pay-as-you-go approach to watching, Jazz+ will also offer the option to pay for individual games. This pay-per-view option costs $5.50 a game and is due to become available on October 25, 2023.
As is typically the case with direct-to-consumer services, Jazz+ is only available to those who live within the team’s broadcast footprint, which not only includes Utah but also areas of Idaho and Wyoming.
For reference, those who are already signed up to a live TV plan that includes access to KJZZ, as well as those with over-the-air access to KJZZ, will be able to watch their local live Jazz games without signing up to the new Jazz+ service. However, they won’t have access to any of the additional exclusive content.
