Warning: NBA League Pass Premium is a scam (Playoffs)

The link below advertises that you can 'watch all playoff games'.
http://watch.nba.com/nba/home

What they don't tell you is that all games are blacked out in Canada (or at least in Vancouver). I haven't been able to watch a single game since the playoffs started. Their support is horrible, and their response, after going back and forth with stupid technical replies and not responding for days, was this:

"The Playoffs and Finals are included with your subscription however, it will be blacked out due to television restrictions as stated on the website, the FAQ and the Terms of Use on the website"

Major BS. They are included, only they are not. Anyone have any idea what resources could be found for formal complaints on false advertisement?

can you VPN and use a US city and then watch NBA League pass?

I think they still have blackouts though even in US cities - which is my concern signing up for League Pass

Ballstreams is better, but if you're stuck with league pass, I suggest signing on under a proxy (european), and then immediatley removing the proxy after you start streaming your game. It'll bypass the blackout, but you won't be stuck using the proxy's low bandwidth.

Not for the playoffs. The entire US and Canada are blacked out. The games are available three hours after they end.
