Just in time for the 2013-2014 season, the NBA has updated its app for the Apple TV, following the rather significant update it deployed for its iOS counterpart.

With the new season kicking off tonight with the Clippers taking on the Lakers, Bulls against the Heat, and Magic lining up against the Pacers, the NBA couldn’t have had better timing to get us Apple TV users primed up for the upcoming season.
