Thoughts?

No, seriously, I’m interested in your thoughts. Obviously they can’t stream the games out of market, but you can get the rest of their programming through this service.

    Don’t think many people are going to be interested in paying for any of their non-game content. Way too many other choices that are better, and in many cases free. Pass.

  • Frank marion September 27, 2018 at 4:21 pm

    I’ll subscribe. I’m a chordcutter Philly native living in Richmon VA.

  • Blake September 27, 2018 at 4:21 pm

    I live in LA now and would consider this if it had eagles post game, but otherwise not enough to pull me in as I’m already paying to stream sunday ticket and have to use various other methods if game is on local TV out here.

      I 1000 % agree, epecially when Reddit MLB/NBA/NFL/NHL streams are a legitimate thing. God bless those magnificent people that provide those links (Which btw stream in fully fcking HD now with very little hickups!)

  • Mike September 27, 2018 at 4:24 pm

    I’ve been a Sixers fan since the early 80s, but live in CT. I would pay whatever it takes if I could get this WITH the games, but without them, I don’t see a huge need. I have League Pass for games

  • It's guaranteed to be September 27, 2018 at 4:25 pm

    A hell of a lot better value than a Crossing Broad subscription.

  • Reddit Streams September 27, 2018 at 4:26 pm

    Displaced Philly Fan – I couldn’t care less about this. Only interested in was to stream live games.

    • Socialist Mike September 27, 2018 at 6:22 pm

      Reddit Streams a fcking life changing.

  • 2nd level thinker September 27, 2018 at 5:48 pm

    It’s worth it just to see Nat on Mike Miss from 2pm-5pm.

  • displaced in dc September 27, 2018 at 5:58 pm

    not worth it w/o the games…

  • EaglesSixersFan4Life September 27, 2018 at 6:07 pm

    I don’t have League Pass or Sunday Ticket (go to an Eagles/Sixers bar where I live in North Carolina), so $30 a year ($2.50 a month) works for me! Probably won’t get it until after Halloween, but worse-case if it sucks come November 2019, I’ve wasted $30 on way worse things.

  • After they fire everyone else.... September 27, 2018 at 6:16 pm

    What are they going to broadcast: an empty chair?

  • Alpha September 27, 2018 at 7:34 pm

    I’ve lived outside of PA for 23yrs. I have the mlb, nfl and nba package on dtv. Why would I need this?

    • Roob’s Top 10 list September 27, 2018 at 7:52 pm

      Don’t you miss NFL HoFer Ray D and his voluminous notes on yellow paper? What about “Quick Slants” with Wisconsin’s finest DGunn? Michael Barkann’s glasses?

  • JDubs September 27, 2018 at 8:41 pm

    Can people from out of market stream Nbc Sports app? I use that app a lot when I’m out and about. Or my wife puts on some bad show when I want to watch Thursday Night Football.

  • Bob S September 27, 2018 at 9:42 pm

    This is a must have for out of market philly fan. I just wish they would add it to the DirecTV sports package that carries all the other big market sports channels.

  • Pierre A. Suranto September 27, 2018 at 10:52 pm

    Wish I would’ve known this before I got the sunday ticket!! Definitely next year!

  • Wait...so what's going on? September 28, 2018 at 7:37 am

    So basically I can watch the same show on replay a hundred times for $30/year? If they at least threw in the Flyers, I’d be interested.

  • living in north jerzzzz September 28, 2018 at 8:59 am

    My buddy lets me use his philly market xfinity cable credentials. It doesn’t work to stream Phillies games (yawn) but last year I streamed every Sixers game from north jersey. It also gets me pre and post game all around.

    As others have mentioned, nflstreams on reddit for Eagles games is a godsend.

  • Eric September 28, 2018 at 9:15 am

    Do people watch these shows now on cable?
    Do they publish the ratings?

  • The Queen October 26, 2018 at 10:04 am
