I doubt very much it has the big boys though from basic cable. They are all part of the same conglomerate and want to protect the tier system.
Yep, look at Viacom and DirectV.
Viacom has a crap ton of channels, where I only watch 1 of them(Comedy Central), but I have to pay for them all as a subscriber. I don't think my bill will go up, but then again prices for crap has been going up forever, why stop now lol.
Another thing with the Center Ice and other things such as MLB.TV and such on the XBOX, is the blackout. I know Blubba you live in Florida I believe, so you wouldn't have to worry about that for Coyotes games. But living in the local market, you are blacked out from your home team. That is something to keep in mind when you get these packages.
I would love to drop cable and just get the packages and watch on my xbox or whatever else, but the blackout rules kind of makes it pointless, unless I'm really into that sport, which I'm not really into sports in general, I like to watch my boys. I wish they would drop the blackout rule.
That's okay with me. I usually don't think fondly of piracy or watching illegal streams, but I make exceptions for blackouts.
I shouldn't even be blacked out from Panthers/Coyotes games since FSN Florida only covers the Panthers in south Florida, but I am. THAT IS DUMB. NBC Sports isn't in a basic cable package here, so I don't feel bad, I shouldn't have to buy a channel that is supposed to be "nationally televised", especially since GameCenter isn't cheap on its own. As for Lightning/Coyotes games and NBC/CNBC games, I can probably just go to a bar or go over to a friend's house the two times that happens. Also, being blacked out for games on NHL Network randomly decides to carry is complete ********. I doubt there is one area in the US where NHL Network is in a basic plan.
Unemployment is still above 8 percent, economists fear a double-dip recession looms and ... Nike is unveiling a $315 sneaker.
The $315 LeBron X would be Nike's most expensive ever, and will include motion sensors to measure how high users jump, according to The Wall Street Journal. Unveiled by NBA superstar LeBron James during the 2012 Olympic gold medal basketball game between the United States and Spain, it will be available to consumers with money to burn this fall.
Nike, based in Beaverton, Ore., is raising shoe and clothing prices by 5 to 10 percent, analysts told the newspaper, while labor, material and shipping costs increase. The jump in price comes after Nike’s gross margins dropped to 42.8 percent from 44.3 percent in its most recent quarter ending May 31, its sixth straight year-to-year quarterly decline, the Journal reports.
Sadly some kids are going to get shot over this sneaker, especially kids from the families who claim they have no money to feed, clothe, get school supplies for their children. I wonder why!!!
