Most impressed with Wimbledon on [TVNZ 1] and Duke. The quality of the video is really excellent.
I'm seriously unimpressed. TVNZ1 and TVNZDuke only show the same games (at least the few times I've watched. The whole point of multi-channels is to show different content, something that also eluded them during the Comm Games at times.
Interesting hypothetical given the other World Cup next year.
If the Fifa World Cup had been streaming only and cost $100 for the tournament, how many would have paid the $100 for it?
If you wanted that, you could have signed up with Fan Pass ($99 per month, $59/m 6 months, or $30/m for 12 months on an eligible Spark plan). Given the fact that soccer is not a major TV sport here, and most games start while we are sleeping, I don't think people would stomach $100 for a season pass. Optus Sport priced it as AU$15 (NZ$16.40) per month, and later gave everyone refunds until the end of August due to their streaming issues.
Rugby Union on the other hand has a massive TV audience and Toyko is in a friendly time zone.
