I agree with you, I wouldn't be surprised that if MLB has it's way, then the NHL platform is screwed. Obviously the product will be better for those who pay but look at how content is shared right now. MLB freaks out whenever another source re-posts their material on youtube or anywhere else whereas the NHL looks the other way. They understand that it's more important that fans see the action rather than forcing everyone to pay for something they wouldn't pay for anyway.PrimaryTech wrote: ↑Sep 29th, 2015 9:11 amIn all honesty, I'm unsure. But re-broadcasting in any form is illegal in both Canada and U.S. I wouldn't be surprised at all if MLBAM does end up going after end-users as well. Similar to satellite sites that sold donations for satellite services. I never signed up for the service therefore I'm unsure what sort of information/payment you need to provide to them but be cautious of providing legit information to HockeyStreams. Don't be shocked if in a few years you get a letter in the mail from MLBAM demanding $ to settle out of court.
We're a week away from the season start and the platform isn't even accepting payments from other countries. Something is off, this is late. Either they are trying to cut down on people buying GCL through a VPN or they are trying to implement the MLB platform quickly. Either way, obviously whatever they are working on is late. Rogers pricing scheme is stupid though. You're paying $100/month for cable (if you have cable) and then they want another $179.99 (early bird) to watch all the games that aren't blacked out.
