KHL Webcast Subscriptions Here is a new, official KHL webpage offering webcast subscriptions for the upcoming KHL season: http://video.khl.ru/page/subscription_page Weirdly, the page is not available in English for now, only in Russian. It's mind-boggling as to why they would not at least attempt to sell the webcasts to an international audience, too, if the KHL is supposed to be an "international league". Normally, I'd say, "Let's hope they will add the English version of that webpage soon." But, I've given up hope on that -- we said the same thing a year ago, and it never happened. There is still no PayPal payment option (which is amateurish and inexcusable [yes, Vorky]), but at least, compared to last season, all major credit (and debit, if net-enabled) cards from around the world are now accepted for payment. (Have yet to test this myself.) In other good news, the price of the subscriptions themselves dropped compared to last season! Specifically: Season-long KHL webcasts subscription now costs only around â‚¬91 ($122) compared to around â‚¬103 ($137) last season. Of course, that is still a high price, but I might actually consider purchasing it, if the KHL season had been longer -- at least as long as the NHL season. But, with the regular season finishing as early as March 4th, and everything being over in late April... I'm not convinced paying â‚¬91 would truly be a good value. There are also huge, useless, week-long breaks distributed throughout the KHL season (I don't mean the Olympic break, which is OK) -- something that would be unthinkable in the NHL, because it really breaks the flow of the season for both the teams/players, and the fans following the league. Let's hope that after Sochi, such disruptions of the KHL will no longer happen in future seasons. An even better discount is that purchasing webcasts for a single team of your choice for the entire season now only costs around â‚¬23 ($30) compared to around â‚¬34 ($45) a year ago. This truly is excellent value, and I'll definitely be purchasing this subscription at the very least (unless I do change my mind and purchase the entire thing instead). By offering this subscription type, KHL is providing a better service than NHL Game Center, in that the subscription type "All games by 1 team" does not exist at all in the NHL. On the other hand, the KHL should not scam their customers, and if the subscription is sold as "All games by 1 team", then it really should deliver all games by 1 team. Skipping the webcast for any game -- home or away --, for any reason whatsoever, is amateurish and inexcusable (yes, ult). Even a static 1-camera webcast from the red line, with no commentary, would be acceptable as a replacement solution; but offering no webcast at all is unacceptable. Note: Without any warning about "Early Bird" pricing coming to an end, the prices of these two subscriptions were raised back to â‚¬103 ($137) / â‚¬34 ($45) on the first day of the new season (4th September 2013), and many games still are not offered as webcasts (for example, 5 out of 12 games played on Sunday, 8th September 2013).
