- FREE: Standard definition streaming during the Invite-Only Online Qualifiers and the Spring Championship remains free.

- Get1080p access to all streams at Spring Arena 1, the Spring Invite-Only Online Qualifiers, Spring Arena 2 and the Spring Championship.
- Gold Members – Special Discount: Gold Members, who already have full HD access to the Spring Championship, get a special discount on full HD access to all other events in the Spring Season. The entire Spring Season leading up to the Championship (Spring Arena 1, Spring Invite-Only Online Qualifiers, Spring Arena 2) will cost you just $15. That is half what it will cost non-Gold Members.
Note that Gold Memberships are no longer available online, but they are available at GameStop and Toys “R” Us locations in the US. If you don’t have a Gold Membership, the Spring Season Pass is your best option.
- A La Carte HD: If you want to pay for full access to each event individually, prices are as follows:
