THE SKY HIGH COST REMINDS US THAT KANSAS CITY BASEBALL PRICE GOUGING ALSO INSULTS TAXPAYERS WHO DON'T WANT TO PAY HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS TO BILLIONAIRES!!!
Now here's a peek at the subscription fee price that would even make recently suffering Netflix laugh given that we've already hit "peak subscription" and broke-ass viewers are pulling back . . .
"The price point is a bit steep, especially when compared to MLB.TV, which gives coverage to all teams (subject to blackout restrictions) at a price point of $24.99 per month. But it does give cord-cutting fans another option, where the only current way to stream games without a cable or satellite subscription is through DirecTV Stream at $79.99 per month for the introductory rate.
"Why doesn’t Sinclair simply work out a deal with other streaming options like YouTubeTV and Hulu? Perhaps they would, but only on their terms. Sinclair is known for being a tough negotiator, and have asked for carriage fees that the streaming channels are unwilling to pay. Cutting off access to other streaming channels also diverts customers to their own direct-to-consumer offering - Bally Sports+.
"What does this mean for the Royals? Well there is hope that they can get their games in front of more fans by this summer. It remains to be seen how many fans are willing to shell out $20 a month to watch this team, but it does give another option for those unwilling to go back to cable."
