    If you want the NFL...you have to get the whole package...and Directv only..

    Most cable systems offer..

    MLB extra innings
    NBA League Pass
    NHL Center ice....

    There are full and partial season deals...


    My question.....why can't I "buy" one single out of market game....like ordering a movie?

    This is a hugely profitable market no?

    I mean..at least 31 people would order tonight's Knicks game.....

    Concur. but it's like people talking a la carte cable channels. I just don't see what the price point could be that would make it worthwhile. Shows sell for $1.99 and up what's the channel gonna cost?

    MLB did offer individual games on computer in like 2002 or 2003 for like .99 a game.

    But it stopped....

    What?

    You live in Carlsbad, or are you further down south? If you live in Carlsbad, you really should consider a dope ass Condo in downtown.
