: : : : : : The man knows the history of Orange county basketball and football. Needs to broadcast a few more games this year. Wake up TV people !
: : : : TV person here. I'm curious, would you pay a fee to watch a game with Paul announcing? How many others would and how much? I love HS hoops and would happily produce live streamed games with Paul behind the mic, but it costs money to do so. You're in the hole by just showing up to the gym. How many of you would pay to watch live streamed games? What price would make you a regular consumer? Love to hear feedback from many people.
: : : NEVER, NEVER would I pay to watch any HS games on the net. I technically pay for them already if they some how make it to cable so Iím fine with that.
: : OC Fan, Caster has just let you know why you don't see more of Paul Westphal calling games. Higher quality coverage is currently not a good business. You're left with subscribing to BallerTV's amateur ultra wide shot coverage, as that is what the market will fund. Professionals like Paul deserve to be paid for his knowledge, skill, and effort.
: Sad day but some would pay I hope ?
I am curious how this would even work, maybe if you bought a package of games it could work but buying games individually i doubt would really happen since there is usually not a big enough fan base to watch games online, most schools only have local fans that attend the games if they really want to watch. Also the big games like CIF finals are already televised so you are mostly looking at tournament, showcases, and top league games that might attention.
