So is it going to be on CBS, the network, or CBS Sports Network, that requires the super-whiz-bang cable package to watch?

Well... looks like everyone is going to be getting the booster package to get CBS sports in HD for at least the month of May! I know I'll be watching it! Hopefully I'm not working!

Think about the time slot that they got... May 18 is a saturday. Noon EST is perfectly in the middle of the day. The fact that CBS even considered this deal is huge and says worlds as to the quality of the webcast that we all watch for free!

to PBA / SMP / NCPA / anyone else involved in making this happen!

Not gonna lie, was a little irked at first, but I can live with waiting.

I hooked up my laptop through HDMI so i watched all my games on my 32" HDTV games looked great even though i didnt pay for them could have been a lot better. Also glad to see this sport getting a little bit of the spotlight. Had friends always give me crap when i talk about watching the pros play like if i was watching football. Now they can see im not just making this up.

Good job to FGCU on thier win. Hope to see more paintball action and great games with the MAO-PSP event.

Yes you will need a special package with your cable company to be able to watch this.

it sucks having to wait a month to watch it; and the fact that anyone who really cares about it will already know who won by then, makes me not really care to watch it a whole lot.

Depends what you mean by special. I already get the channel. 50 million homes in the US already have the channel. It's available in 50 million more homes, so worst case you can bump your package for a month.

Any sports bar will have it for sure too.

Can't wait to see this on tv. More paintball needs to be seen through the media in a good light.

Ahhhh, good thinking! Honestly I'd rather go out for lunch and watch the game with some friends. Not only would it be fun for me, but it also exposes more people to the sport while you're there

This part right here times 1000. Anyone not working should go to their big local sports bars such as Buffalo Wild Wing and get this on as many tvs as you possibly can! Its great exposure for the sport, especially if people can hear the TV. If I'm not working, I know I will for sure.

Either way, it was a good game against fgcu. Lots of blood was boiling between both teams, but they came out on top. Congrats to them. But you better believe that we're going to be coming out swinging next year.
Why don't you zoom out and join me in seeing the larger picture, not focus on the 2013 NCPA.

Roughly 12% of the population of America lives in California. So, statistically, California should only win 12% of the time, or at least have 12% of the teams. But that is not what we used to see.

In cali the paintball was much more competitive, with more competition, you generate a better player. So, you got a situation where your average California paintballer was better than most other paintballers anywhere else in the world.

Now, paintball is beginning to spread out. As pro teams are beginning to emerge from other parts of the country(and the world) to take the victors stand, California is starting to lose its name as the central hub of tournament paintball.

I watch it if for nothing else than to see how the best play paintball. I go on paintballaccess all the time to watch and rewatch the pro games to study their breakouts, their snap shooting, how they move, when they move, and what lanes they hold.

I think Florida has and always will be one of the central hubs for paintball along with Cali. Both states have perfect weather for paintball.
