    I been reading quite a lot but still havent found my answer.

    Most probably know that NBA lock out it over. I have canceled my cable service so i will pretty much not be able to watch any NBA games. I was wondering if it would be possible to watch with ATV?

    I know ATV has NBA league pass but NBA league pass blocks out games on TNT/ESPN and etc. Also it blocks out all the local games which would be Lakers and Clippers for me. so i wouldnt be able to watch a lot of good games.

    I haven't been able to find much information about jailbreaking reading this.

    So i was wondering with a jailbroken ATV and NBA league pass will i be able to watch all the games including the play offs and finals?

    Also if not, does anybody have a good solution besides online streaming?

    You are probably not going to be able to get around NBA streaming rules jailbroken or not. It will be based on IP address and unless you use a proxy nothing else would work.
    You can install xbox on a jailbroken appletv and use it for streaming video off of Samba or NFS shares. So it is not just for online streaming.
    I have also found the Airplay functionality really useful when I want to show off a recently taken picture or video from my iphone.

    Sadly no--can't do it with a computer, then certainly can't do it with an Apple TV.
