Whilst simultaneously charging $10 pay per view?
I mentioned more the concept of offering a "taster" free of charge to draw people over to the main site. I think you could probably justify it on that basis in Round 1, despite simultaneously charging $10 for it. But not if it continues.
Well each to their own. FWIW I’d disagree. Probably more to the point Peter Doggers - who had actually paid the money - disagreed and asked for his money back.
That's probably fair comment. Although the relationship between Agon and the public is so far beyond repair at this point that one further error of judgement probably won't have much impact.
I only wanted to watch it with the sound off while listening to the radio commentary.
This is what World Chess had to say:
Addressed to "Lennart Ootes and everyone", except they only actually sent it to Lennart...World Chess wrote:@LennartOotes and everyone -- we will show first few days on Facebook live to promote the feature, and on Day 4 it will be a paid feature only. The main features of the premium version are not limited to video feed (but clearly this is the main one). Thanks.
I guess they are the kind of people that keep asking [[insert your most hated entertainment company here: Sky, VirginMedia, BT, ...]] why new customers get stuff for free or much cheaper than existing customers. I would have thought everyone figured that one out already.
Yeah that was the problem with cricket going to satellite. Even if you were prepared to pay the money it messed up the synchronisation.
