I'm confused. The DH is Friday Nov 30th. The SG is Saturday. So it looks like all they are actually committing to show is both runs of the GS on Sunday. Maybe they'll show the SG but really? No plans to show the DH? NBC coverage of the BC and Aspen events in the past has been abysmal so showing one event live is better than nothing, but from the fanfare of the press release I would have expected more. I'm planning on being there in person again anyway but this still bugs me--I may not be able to make the Friday DH.
After some negotiations, I was able to cut $20 off my monthly bill for the next year & get USN at least for the season! I am pretty stoked to have actually won a battle with Dish, although I know that I will never win the war.
Threatening to quit then getting transferred to a customer retention specialist is always a great way to save $$. My sister has worked her cable co for years this way in order to get free HBO and such.
The total cost:
VPN - $55 /year
Eurosport - $8 month to month, ir $58/year,
One year for everything: 113$ /year
Setup time - 45 minutes for both services, including dorking with credit card.
Addtional hour to find the best honkin streaming server.
and, it covers all sports, whereas I had to pay separately with universalsports for each sport.
Sounds like a good plan if you watch a variety of sports, but an expensive hassle for those of us that just want the skiing. And do you get English commentary? I suspect not, and that's what I really miss, watching US online. I don't understand why they can't show their tv broadcasts online for those of us that watch on demand.
