will it? and when?
Yes, last season.
Comcast broadcast a couple games a week over the net.
Also, Yahoo is going to be airing a few games this year online.
two a day
I thought I read that Yahoo will be airing 2-3 games online every week.
Which you only had access to if you had comcast as your cable internet provider.
The question was whether NHL games would be on the net...they were.
Link? That'd be awesome. Catching the Caps on DC TV sucked last year.
10 dollar seats to see Ovechkin though. And since only ~7k show up for a game, seat pickins' are good
They made the the first couple of rounds of the playoffs available to everyone.
I hope Comcast does it again next season.
And all this for free? OLN rules.
Does anyone know how it works excately?
Is it for free?
Anyway this is good news.
when the NHL finally gets their heads out of the asses it will be along the lines of the MLB
$5 per game
I have been watching a few games on line and the MLB feeds on line are great
Why would you want to pay $5 per game when you can get the whole season for a little over $100 with Center Ice? I don't see why you would want to fool with paying individually for a game when you have Center Ice to see all the games- and they break up the payments as well.
Actually you wonÂ´t have to buy single games. MLB.TV offers a month for $14.95, or if you sign up now $49.95 for the remainder of the season.
IÂ´m quite sure the NHL would handle it the same way, offering packages just like CenterIce.
Last year for the regular season to watch the games at comcast.net it was free but you had to have comcast internet. For the playoffs they made it free to anyone. Not sure if it will be available this season to everyone or not. It should be free thoguh.
Also this year there will be games on yahoo which will be free to watch. It may be restricted to the US only though not sure.
That was probably the best reason to have Comcast. I watched a few games a week online.
God I hope they do a package similar to MLBtv, then I can finally see hockey from here in Tw.
as were the comcast feeds and the yahoo ones, while they werent as good as comcast, they were still damn impressive...
but ya, CI is the best way to go imo, I got it for the 1st time last year, and will get it everyyear for the rest of my life, or until i get the habs games as part of my basic cable package
