Yeah I understand where you are coming from. I miss watching the NHL Ducks.... But here in the Los Angeles market, it is getting completely ridiculous with the prices we have to pay for sports. There are 7 major league teams (was: 8, but Chivas USA folded, to make place for a new MLS team that comes back in 2017), 2 MLB, 2 NBA, 2 NHL, and 1 MLS. Time Warner Cable has 2 sports stations for respectively the Lakers and the Dodgers, and both come with a price tag of around $4. The Angeles signed a broadcast deal for $3 per subscriber with many cable outlets. The Ducks, Kings, and Clippers deals have lower, but still significant numbers on their broadcast deals, and if it wasn't all enough, we are also paying for PAC12 sports from USC and UCLA, and to cover costs of ever changing broadcast rights, DirecTV is also charging another $2 "Local Sports Fee" on top of all that. It would be better if you can actually choose your teams. Many Angels fans don't care about the Dodgers, many Ducks fans don't care about Kings games etc.... but if you want to watch 1 team, you have to pay for all of them. And if you are adding the costs of ESPN, the national NBC Sports and Fox Sports networks, as well some of the more niche sports networks that aren't in a separate sports package.... and you are basically shelling out $30-$35 as part of your regular cable/satellite bill JUST for sports. And its not getting any better. DirecTV and Dish both have NOT YET signed deals for the TWC Sportsnet Dodgers channel, and when they do it is going to be around $4 per subscriber, up from around $2 which it was when the Dodgers aired on Fox Sports. DirecTV has been adding $5 to my bill pretty much every year, and I expect them to do so again in February even though they haven't signed that deal yet. What level of price does sports needs to reach before people consider cutting the cord I wonder? It has reached that level for me, and I was willing to kick the NHL Ducks to the curb along with my DirecTV, in lieu of around $1,000 in savings. It's just not worth that kind of money any more just to keep the sports teams I like. I now spend $25 on several streaming services instead of $115 to DirecTV, and I have not regretted the decision. For me, the price of sports on television has reached the "NO" level. I don't know what other peoples pricepoint is for sports, but with all the sports broadcast rights coming up for re-negotiation, it seems we're adding about 10% per year in price increases. Where will it end, and does it remain worth it? I rather take my money and visit a sports bar every so often to watch a game..... at least then I get a cute busty waitress as well to serve me beer.
