Unveiled during the 2008-09 season as a mobile application, NBA Game Time has since expanded with team-specific, tablet and set-top box versions. Along with Windows Phone, NBA Game Time is currently available on Apple TV, Google TV, LG NetCast, Panasonic VIERA Connect, Roku, Samsung Apps and VIZIO Internet Apps.
