It's not really good news for us, as that means the Sabres will have to spend more money to stay competitive, which means more losses.

Why would they work out a deal that would allow customers to ditch TV when NBCUniversal's major interest is TV?

If you're not aware, here are the channels they control:
Quote:
The formation of NBC Universal saw the establishment of NBC Universal Cable, which oversees the distribution, marketing, and advertisement sales for thirteen channels (Bravo, Bravo HD+ (eventually renamed Universal HD), Chiller, CNBC, CNBC World, MSNBC, mun2, Syfy, ShopNBC, Telemundo, Sleuth, USA Network and the Olympic Games on cable). NBC Universal Cable also manages the company's investments in A&E, the History Channel, History Channel International, the Biography Channel, National Geographic International, and TiVo. The cable division also used to operate NBC Weather Plus until 2008.

If you don't want Gamecenter Live to be blacked out, use something like HotSpot Shield or purchase a personal VPN.
