Re: Vertical Integration - Round 3?
said by jfmezei:As far as I'm concerned BCE created this mess and the NFL was only to happy to agree to it (money talks and bull**** walks)
Does the NFL prevent CTV from making its broadcast of Superbowl available to subscribers of Rogers cable TV service ? Shaw ? Videotron ? Colba ? smalltownCable Inc ?
If you view the mobile as a BDU, then the NFL has no business preventing CTV from making its content available on any mobile platform.
All this fuss over a service that so few can afford since watching a whole football game on a mobile would likely costs thousands i overage charges
Can't see how the CRTC can intervene, but here's how stupid the situation is:
In the US it is possible to buy a package with the NFL to stream all games (regular season and playoffs) to your PC or game device, despite games being available on OTA networks.
But in Canada all you can get is the regular season with all of the playoffs unavailable (why hello there BCE/CTV)
Found all this out when I was seriously looking at dumping cable altogether and going streaming for what I do watch (sports)
Screwed up situation this is yes....
