Hey Ogee - just read a story in Sports Business Journal that AT&T Sports Net is going out of business within the next month. according to the article, one of their Regional Sports Networks carries the games for the Vegas NHL team.
has this been covered yet by any of the media outlets in Vegas?
it's starting to look as if the entire RSN system may be on the verge of folding with the Bally's Sports RSN's looking at bankruptcy.
Yup. First story on the VGK page of the LV Review Journal last night/this morning. I'm hoping this COULD be a good thing but I'm not sure yet? We'll see how things shake out this summer.
I use YouTube TV for 95%+ of my television viewing, which doesn't have AT&T SportsNet RM for the VGK. So for a year or two I used FuboTV to watch that channel for VGK and this year I experimented with Direct Stream just to get that one damn channel. WTF...
Apparently this situation affects like 12-14 NHL teams and around 42 sports franchises overall?
I think there will continue to be a lot of things changing throughout this year with regards to streaming services; I think I heard YouTube TV is going to have the NFL Sunday Ticket next year?
If it's an option next season somehow, it didn't take me long to figure out that I would be much better off paying $200/season (or whatever it is?) for NHL Center Ice somewhere than it would be to pay $60-$80/month for a secondary streaming service like Fubo or Direct Stream just to watch hockey games.
Maybe we see a lot more a la carte services moving forward? I'm curious to see what happens. This issue isn't going away
