I'm so tired of hearing big media/entertainment companies complain about having to protect their interests. For the average consumer, the restriction on local media coverage of games isn't really a big deal. However, in the long run, this is one of the first steps in sticking it to the consumer. Later this fall, the NFL plans to show NFL Network only games. It is a great idea as long as you have Digital Cable/Satellite with the more expensive sports package that carries the NFL Network.
I no longer live in the coverage area of the Denver Broncos. My only options for watching the games are an over-priced Satellite package and...actually, that is my only option. I can listen to the games over the internet via the local "Home of the Broncos." I'm wondering how long that will last.
The NFL needs to get with the times. Folks want to be able to download, timeshift, and stream their favorite TV content. I want to watch the Broncos. Give me the option to pay-per-view stream it over the Internet. I want to watch the game of the week. Bittorrent the condensed, HD version and let me download it for a nominal charge. Let CBS, NBC, and ESPN stream it.
Somebody is going to get this right. When they do, they'll wipeout traditional entertainment media.
