At a loss why they did not insist on being on a regular ESPN channel regularly. ESPN has how many channels, anyway. The Ocho isn't even a joke. Streaming has been exposed; it's more expensive, and the tech sucks. Can't toggle between channels as on cable, takes forever to load and NOBODY wants to pay. Bettman once again shown to be the biggest of assholes when it comes to marketing the NHL. 51 minutes ago, Morphinity 2.0 said: Agreed. ESPN+ is a travesty - and the stupid blackout rules are even worse. 44 minutes ago, Ozzy said: I hate that too, Bugg!! What a pain in the ass!! Advertising. You're forced to watch an ad, so not only is ESPN getting ad rev from brands, they're getting subscription dollars. It's a genius model for a money grab, but it's unsustainable. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
