Just saw this on RealGM. If Michael is looking at this, could this be done with the Bobcats so those that don't have access to the games can see them? Just a thought, but it could be a good way to get out there until other carriers decide to pick up the 'Cats.
yeah but i think due to the contract signed with time warner and foxsports they dont allow any other forms of distribution of the games. So streaming would go against their agreement. No difference than letting people pay for league pass broadband, but I talked to them and the only games I could watch was when the Bobcats are on the road.
I have bitched at my cable provider but all they say is there is not enough demand to justify paying fox the hefty fee they want. And of course if other carriers do not carry the games then they have no chance of building demand for the games cause nobody knows who the hell they are except us straggler diehards.
I just hope I won't get "bla bla ... not for your geographical region... bla" quote for being outside of US. Otherwise it would be awesome.
I'd jizz my pants if this happened. Couldn't they just stream the TWC broadcast and commercials? What the fuck is wrong with cable companies in NC, it's like they don't want advertiser revenue. I fucking hate the TV situation.
So I live in NC and I will be able to see 82 more Blazers games than I will Bobcats. FUCKING MORONS.
edit: I just read this http://blog.oregonlive.com/blazers/2..._online_s.html
it says they are only allowed to broadcast in their designated market. Wouldn't that include us in NC and SC that have been bent over by the channel providers?? WE COULD HAVE A WAY TO WATCH. someone e-mail this to Michael Thompson. Fill up his god damn inbox. I already sent 2 e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org

I get it. I just hate that the providers wouldn't look at televising the games as an investment in future viewers.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
Oh, to be a blazer fan
I sent a rant to every e-mail link related to the Bobcats I could find, including MT. Knowing the Bobcats, nothing will get done but whatever. New ownership couldn't come any faster. And cable providers suck. Not only do the Cats not come on, but we get ads for Atlanta Hawks games on SportSouth here in Boone. Of course we are blacked out from those as well
