Talking RaptorsTV to simulcast both TSN2 games this week!!

taken from D.SMITH's BLOG:

Quote:
Oh yeah, we were reminded last night that RaptorsTV will be showing the games at Philly and against Detroit this week – yeah, they’re both TSN2 special –- in their entirety.

Nice patting of self on backs, Raptors, but if you think that’s going to make anyone feel good, you’re more foolish than I expected.

Not only have they, Rogers and TSN screwed fans royally all year, this self-serving stuff only underscores the fact they should have been doing this all season.

The TV situation has been a mess from Day 1 and this isn’t going to make it feel any better.

What they should have been doing is simulcasting them from the start of the season.

End of rant

I don't even think it is about appeasing the fans....Do you know how low viewership would be if it was just on tsn2?

It was SUPER low before the season was over and they were officially in the tank, imagine how low it would be now!

I think it's more about being able to maintain the commerical value!

sounds like the TSN2 Feed will be shown LIVE on RaptorsTV

I dont understand how that works, TSN2 loses out no? Did raps tv/MLSE pay TSN2 for the feed?

Well its the Raptors that produce the broadcast anyways, so they don't have to pay TSN anything, plus its the Raptors that get advertising revenue as well.

Raptors/NBA produce and own the rights to the game
TSN pays for the rights to brodcast the games and gains revenue through ads/commercials

Good for people with RaptorsTV, but it still pisses me off.

I don't have Raptors TV and i really don't think i should just to watch the games. I don't follow some fucking niche sport. It's the NBA for crying out loud. EVERY game should be on regular effing cable.

To hell with this.
