League to charge for summer league web broadcasts

Postby JSM on Thu Jul 09, 2009 11:18 am

Brian Hanley of the Chicago Sun Times wrote:Prepare to pay to watch the Bulls and all other summer league games. The formerly free service is now available for $14.99.

The league announced the fee today. It covers a webcast subscription for all 55 games, beginning Friday.

Fans will have access to all games on a live basis as well as on a video-on-demand basis for up to one week following the conclusion of the league's final game.
To subscribe, fans may log onto NBA.com/summerleague beginning today and
follow the links for NBA SUMMER LEAGUE BROADBAND.

The Bulls begin play July 17 in Las Vegas.

NBA.com's on-line coverage of NBA Summer League will be complemented by
live studio programming on NBA TV. NBA GameTime will feature expert
analysis from NBA TV host Andre Aldridge and analysts Steve Smith and Eric
Snow who will showcase the players, stories and news that develop this
summer. NBA Insider David Aldridge will also contribute to the network's
coverage. Shows will air beginning on Wednesday, July 8 and will air daily
beginning on Friday, July 10. On-demand video clips of the studio
programming will be available on NBA.com.

Do you think there will still be a way to watch games online for free?

^ They will be available for free on July 26th. About a week after the games are over.

So lame

I have watched some of the Orlando games for free, and the production was terrible

No way anyone should pay for these.
100 people see fire.
99 start screaming and getting hysterical over all the smoke.
I start looking for the cause.

Concern yourselves with the Problems, not the Symptoms.

What about live? Do you think people will still be able to post links to other sources to watch the games like they did during the regular season?

Idiotic move by the NBA, screw this.
