its still non - existent as a sports news worthy item. This writer is going way overboard.
You'd be surprised how many people you ask know or followed it. ESPN showed US beating Canada, I don't know about anything else though. I know a good amount of kids that either woke up to watch it or at least tried to wake up, and there was a lot of people that knew the scores, like they regularly checked the tournament, even with the weird times.

In the hockey community, it's definitely growing in the US.

On the flipside, you have to be insanely creative to spend 150$ a month for cable/sat in Sweden.
It was called a tv licensing fee, which last year was around 250-280 euros. Not nearly everyone paid it though, my self included. They replaced it with YLE tax (YLE = Yleisradio = Finnish national broadcasting company, equivalent of SVT and CBC, though unlike the latter, not allowed to broadcast commercials), which everyone paid depending on their income. The unemployed or small income folk don't pay anything or very little. My tax percentage went up I think about 3% and only because I've done some part time work for the mail service.

Its miniscule. Everatings relative. A regular NCAA women's bb game I'm sure spanked it on ratings.
