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.
