What did we do with our time before the advent of the sports subscriptions?

I have the NFL Sunday Ticket, MLB Extra Innings and NHL Center Ice and am like a little kid. I've watched so much baseball this year (GO TIGERS!) .

Which sports subscriptions do you have?

MLB and NFL

but next year, I'm dropping MLB, way way too many blackouts for the yanks, plus I want to watch them on the YES feed, not the freaking opposing teams feed.

NFL ST With Superfan, MLB, NHL Center Ice, NBA League Pass, NCAA Game Plan, NCAA March Madness. I MAY cancel the NBA League Pass this year since it seems that so many games are on TNT and ESPN/ABC already but Im not sure yet.

True - At least we have Ovechekin. I think if I lived somewhere else, I'd get Center Ice just to watch that kid play. :)

I don't subscribe to any. Here in the NYC area we have so many RSNs and teams to watch there is no time to watch any other games on the sports packages.

I live in my hometown DMA (distant fringes) and still get the NFLST to watch the rest of the games. If I did not have season tickets to my alma mater, I'd probably get the ESPN GamePlan too...
DTV & NFLST since 97 at least, not looked back yet...

Extra Innings is a complete waste now that you can get MLB.tv for less than $80 for the entire season...

Exactly what I was thinking! A waste would be having a 60" HD TV and watching BASEBALL, of all things, on a computer screen. Oy!
