Who is doing NBCSN [EDIT/Gold Streaming]

Now that I have no metered internet I went to NBCSN for a look see for cycling content. I got chromecast going so I can cast to the LCD, been casting Netflix so far.

All I could see was 19.99 from now until 6/29. Is this like a discounted piece of the end of the full season or something. Or is it 19.95 per month? FAQs not helpful.

How much is it going to be 7/1/2017 and is it yearly or will it then say 7/1 to 7/31 as the end date??

Thanks

I thought it was basic cable. Twenty bucks doesn't sound like much of a deal. I'd be surprised if it was more than a month. A couple of channels like that and you may as well give in.

I doubt any sports network is playing peek-a-boo with the price because of a pleasant surprise when you click [submit.]

Maybe you heard about the recent layoffs at ESPN. Apparently they released about 100 of the beat reporters. It seems they had to make sacrifices after overextending themselves in NBA/NFL/N-this/N-that bidding wars.

Sacrifices

Why do I see a hundred people on litters rising to appease Kukulkán?

I -think- you are talking about NBCSN Gold-an app/subscription you buy yearly. I also think it runs from July1-June30. This is completely different from the NBCSN tv service. Gold is their streaming service.

I checked into this a while ago. The 19.95 covers you until 7/1. Because of the Tdf the price goes up after 7/1 to I think 29.95 and you are covered until 7/1/18.

Current Subscriber

I picked it up for last years tour.

I've been satisfied. You don't get all events. No Giro.

Tour, Vuelta, PR, Cali and bunch more. The website has a list or at least it did.

It the NBCsports Gold package.

Streamed it to my TV via Roku but used it on an iPad and iPhone too.

Went to sign up, not a secure site, and no https://

WTF?

Well, at least the payment site they are using is secure...
