Matty mentioned they would charge for Sunday on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNnnEGUgp-w


I honestly don't see the issue with it. I can't imagine how much money and time it takes to produce the quality feed that PBA produces. Don't even pretend like you can't fork up 3-4 dollars for the entertaining, professional feed Matty sets up. You clearly already have internet access to even complain about it, which is 15-40 dollars a month. Another 3-4 dollars is nothing.

Think of how much money you've spent on drinks at bars on women that don't like you. This money goes towards entertainment for everyone who loves the sport.

You are already getting 2 days of play for FREE...Can't stand this generation that wants everything for nothing.

it's streaming on the internet which i pay for. I don't know how much they are going to charge, but just to drop this the night before the tourney starts bothers me.

So let me get this straight, its the PSP`s intention to charge for a service they've spent thousands of dollars on to a a player not attending, and thus not contributing financially to said product, all so that player can benefit from watching the best players on the planet and giving us an excuse not to work for three days.



STFU and give them your $10.00

Because if you knew earlier you would have made arrangements to fly/drive/walk to TX to see it in person right??? We'll, you've still got time to do any of those!

Or you could contribute to the company that's allowed you to watch a FREE quality broadcast of the finals for many seasons already.

Help us help the Sport

We have done all we can to make the webcast available to the fans for free, PBA and the biggest companies in the industry have come together in order to pitch in and provide top-notch content, and the best show in the business. For two years we were able to make this happen. But the combined might of the industry hasn’t been able to keep this level of broadcast completely available for free. In order to keep producing an internet broadcast of this scope and magnitude, in order to keep showcasing the best players and teams in world, we have to start charging for Sunday. To spell it out crystal clear for those who may not understand the reality of the situation, that may think we (PBA) are making money: WE ARE NOT. Quite the contrary.

But though we are asking for your financial support, consider this your chance to help progress the sport. Without money, nothing happens, nothing moves. Without enough support even the best things will come to end. If everyone who watched the webcast bought the HD feed, the sport would change for the better forever. You would get to see angles and insights, depth of story, you have never seen before. We provide around 30 hours of content over three days. All we are asking for is about the price of movie ticket. I’d say that’s pretty good bang for your buck.

Everyone has heard the saying, “You get what you pay for.” If the majority of the people watching pay nothing, then nothing is what you will eventually get. Or a severely decapitated broadcast, and a sport that has very little chance of continuing its trajectory forward towards mainstream acceptance. Great progress has been made: for the first time in over ten years all the best teams in the world are playing in one league, and you get to watch every move, learn from and be entertained by, the very best paintball has to offer. Paintball statistics exist now, and for the first time ever you can actually determine who the best players are concretely. You can use these stats to play fantasy paintball, pick your favorite players and follow them through their tournament performance throughout the season.

We have made great strides in the past two years, countless hours by many, many people have been worked, and there is much more to be done. That’s where you come in. Help us help the sport. Spread the word, fight the “I want everything in the world for free” trolls, send this message far and wide, and get others you know who believe in the same dream we do to contribute, so we can make this a sustainable reality. The only reason PBA exists is to bring you onto the field, in the pits, into the lives of the players who dedicate themselves to being the best and define the sport we all love so much. But the potency of paintball’s push into the world will only be a mighty as our collective strength. So let’s show everyone how strong we really are.

I will happily pay for the HD broadcast even though I'll be there Sunday watching live. Really appreciate what you guys do for the sport and nothing made that more appearant than the disparity in quality of the APL broadcast....Matty thank you for everything you guys do!

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
