Google in talks to stream live NBA/NHL games on Youtube
 
Quote:

Google Inc.’s YouTube said it’s in talks with the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League to broadcast live games, building on the popularity of cricket’s Indian Premier League last year. YouTube aims to show more live sports in the second half of the year, said Gautam Anand, Google’s director of content partnerships for Asia Pacific, in an interview in Seoul yesterday. He declined to give details of the discussions with the NBA and NHL.

This would be amazing!

before we get all happy let's see if there will be any kind of a fee involved. This service is out there now through the leagues directly, but it costs.

Google does everything for free... I can't imagine them doing this for a high price.

Well, that's why I kinda doubt this will ever happen - cuz if it wasn't free, people would be pissed. But I doubt they'd want to broadcast them without making any money as well.

So I won't hold my breathe. But it'd be nice!

But don't they make money through the ads? So couldn't google charge a ridiculous amount for ads that would reach a bigger audience than say NBA League Pass. And then pay the NBA a portion of it. Or something like that.

Not a bad idea, actually.

And they have those annoying pop-ups during the videos.
