It's a niche product, but it's exposure they don't normally get and it's pretty well praised. Don't know how much money is involved but it can't be small I'd think...

Also NBC coverage usually starts about the same time. The lockout provisions in the NBC deal are pretty sweet from the league's perspective but it's still something I'm sure they'd rather not trigger.
