Tournament Play on TV

I remember watching paintball on tv a few years ago, NPPL i think it was. What happened to that? Do any channels still show paintball?

A lot of shows have contracts that have requirements that must be fulfilled, and the requirements were never met; meaning that they cancelled or took the shows off-air.

Watching NPPL/PSP/X-ball is usually too hard for non-paintball players to understand, and a little too mainstream for hard-core tournament ballers. Besides regional FSN showing the NCPA nationals, you won't find paintball on TV right now, but check youtube or live streams for tournament coverage.
